    These Cherry Cheesecake Bars are super easy to make, the hardest part is waiting for the cheesecake to chill in the fridge. I love making these cheesecake bars in the summer months, when I don t want to be baking something in the oven for hours and heating up our home. This recipe looks awesome, especially because I can substitute whatever flavor of gelatin I want! Oh, the possibilities lime? lemon? strawberry? Can t wait to make these with my daughter tomorrow!
