Easter Cheesecake Bars Recipe

Celebrate Easter and the arrival of spring with these colorful, creamy Easter Cheesecake Bars. Featuring a Golden OREO crust and a vibrant cheesecake topping in pastel shades, these bars are a festive and delicious addition to any Easter gathering.



  • 30 Golden OREOs, crushed
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted

Cheesecake Batter:

  • 4 packages (8 oz each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • Food coloring in pastel pink, blue, yellow, and green


  • Sanding sugars in pastel colors
  • Sprinkles


  1. Prepare the Crust: Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Line a 13×9 inch baking pan with foil. Mix crushed OREOs and melted butter, press into the bottom of the pan. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove and let cool.
  2. Make the Cheesecake Batter: In a large bowl, mix cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition. Incorporate vanilla, sour cream, and flour until well combined. Divide the batter into four bowls and color each one with different pastel food coloring. Drop spoonfuls of colored batter onto the crust randomly. Swirl gently with a knife.
  3. Baking: Place a water-filled cookie sheet on the bottom oven rack. Bake the cheesecake on the center rack for about 45 minutes or until set. Let cool for 1 hour, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  4. Decorate: Before serving, let the cheesecake sit at room temperature for a while. Decorate with pastel sanding sugars and sprinkles.


  • Use a hot knife to cut clean squares for serving.
  • Decorate just before serving to keep the toppings vibrant.
  • For a lighter version, substitute some ingredients with their low-fat or sugar-free counterparts.


Q: Can I freeze the cheesecake bars?
A: Yes, you can freeze the cheesecake bars for up to a month. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before serving.

Q: How can I make the crust if I don’t have Golden OREOs?
