I use fresh blueberries and raspberries with chocolate ganache to make cheesecake bars that dare you to walk away. —Carmell Childs, Ferron, Utah

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • CHEESECAKE LAYER:
  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • TOPPING:
  • 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh raspberries or blueberries

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a bowl, mix cracker crumbs, pecans and salt; stir in melted butter. Press onto bottom of a greased 13x9-in. baking pan. Bake until lightly browned, 8-10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Beat in vanilla. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until blended. Spread over crust. Bake until center is almost set, 15-20 minutes. Cool 1 hour on a wire rack.
  3. Place chocolate chips in a small bowl. In a saucepan, bring cream just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; let stand 5 minutes. Stir with a whisk until smooth. Stir in vinegar and corn syrup; cool slightly, stirring occasionally. Pour over cheesecake layer; let stand 5 minutes. Top with berries.
  4. Refrigerate at least 3 hours, covering when completely cooled. Cut into bars.
