I never eat candy…but when I see it incorporated into baked goods, I’m instantly drawn in. Heath Bars and Rolos top my list of favorites, and when I spotted Danielle’s amazing Rolo Cheesecake Bars, I copied the recipe immediately. She goes the extra mile with a chocolate drizzle and Rolo topper, but I was making these for newly graduated high schoolers, so no need to get fancy
Yes, these were everything you’d expect them to be. Decadent, addicting…just insanely delicious. Give them a try.
