Cranberry Bliss Bars

You know it's the holidays when you start to see certain things...inflatable Santas on your neighbors lawn, footie Christmas pajamas at Target, and those red cups at Starbucks. And speaking of Starbucks, they also have a seasonal treat called a Cranberry Bliss bar. Apparently it's only available in December. When my girlfriend was telling me about it, I immediately thought...I bet I can make that at home. Yes, I realize I might have issues. But a girl can dream, right?


A vanilla based bar with white chocolate chips and dried cranberries topped with a lemony cream cheese frosting, more dried cranberries and a drizzle of white chocolate. Wow, that's a mouthful.

I had to stop by Starbucks before making these to do some...ah...market research. And their bar was pretty tasty. But these might be better. Not sure why, maybe because I made them??? Ha ha!!


Soft and sweet in the middle with surprising bites of white chocolate...cream cheese frosting with just a hint of citrus...all topped with white chocolate. Seriously, does it get any better? Yes it does because I don't have to count on Starbucks to dangle this treat in front of me for a month, then yank it away. I can have it whenever I want. And I'm cool with that.


Want to try them? Here's the recipe: Cranberry Bliss Bars. Go, bake, eat, and enjoy!!!!
