Check out these EASY to make Elderberry Boost cheesecake bars below! Either make it with a swirl or a sauce. I hope you love it as much as we do!
1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup unsalted butter (melted)
2 packages (8oz) cream cheese (softened)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs (room temperature)
1 cup Elderberry Boost syrup
1 tablespoon corn starch
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Make the crust:
- Line an 8 inch baking dish with heavy duty foil and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray.
- Put 5 large graham crackers in a ziplock bag. Break apart and crumble graham crackers
- Combine graham cracker crumbs, 1.5 tablespoons sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and melted butter. Stir until well combined.
- Press into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes and set aside.
Make the batter:
- Beat cream cheese, remaining sugar, and vanilla with mixer until blended.
- Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing on low speed.
- Pour over crust.
Swirl Sauce (This sauce can be used to make a cheesecake swirl or to use as a glaze to put over the top of the cheesecake.)
- In a medium saucepan over low heat, whisk together one cup Elderberry Boost syrup and 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- Continue to stir while cooking, about 3-4 minutes. It will slowly thicken. Do not turn temperature too high or it will burn. Once at desired consistency, remove from heat. It will also thicken as it cools.
- Decide swirl or glaze....
- To swirl... spoon sauce over over batter. Use a toothpick to slowly move around sauce into the batter. Make any design of your choice.
- If you prefer a glaze, cook cheesecake first. 350 degrees for 50 minutes. Place sauce over finished cheesecake and then place in refrigerator for about 4 hours to set.
- If you chose the swirl, let cool and cut into bars!
