Have you ever had a White Russian cocktail before? Omg such a classic and SO GOOD! It’s just vodka, coffee liqueur, and cream, served over ice. Sounds pretty basic but wow. It’s sweet, and creamy, with a hint of roasty coffee… like heaven. Kinda reminds me of coffee flavored ice cream but with a boozy kick.

It’s a perfect way to indulge and cool off in the summertime. So I thought, why not make a dessert version?

The flavors are perfectly suited to a cheesecake recipe. I chose to bake mine as bars, but these White Russian Cheesecake Bars would work just as well in an 8-inch round pan.

The chocolate cookie crust is the perfect crunchy foil to the creamy-dreamy filling. I just love chocolate and coffee together!

And the subtle flavors of coffee and cream really shine. Definitely give these fun cheesecake bars a whirl the next time you have friends over!
