  • Sugar cookie dough: 1 package
  • Rainbow sprinkles: 3 Tablespoons, plus more for topping
  • Cream cheese: 4 packages (8 ounces each), softened
  • Granulated sugar: 1 cup
  • Eggs: 4
  • Vanilla extract: 2 teaspoons
  • Food coloring gel: Assorted colors (as desired)


  1. Preparation: Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Line a 9×13-inch baking pan with parchment and spray with nonstick spray.
  2. Base Layer: Knead 3 tablespoons of sprinkles into the sugar cookie dough. Press half into the pan as the base.
  3. Cheesecake Mixture: Beat cream cheese with sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Divide into three bowls, tint each with food coloring.
  4. Assemble: Spoon colored cheesecake mixtures over the base. Crumble remaining dough on top, then sprinkle with extra sprinkles.
  5. Bake: Bake for 40 minutes until golden. Cool for 1 hour, then chill in the fridge for at least 3 hours.
  6. Serve: Cut into bars and enjoy the magic!


  • For vibrant colors, use a few drops of gel food coloring.
  • Chill overnight for best texture and flavor.
  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.


Q: Can I use homemade sugar cookie dough instead of packaged?
A: Yes, homemade sugar cookie dough can be used and might even add a personal touch to the bars.

Q: How do I ensure the cheesecake layer sets properly?
A: Make sure to cool the bars at room temperature for an hour before chilling in the fridge; this helps the cheesecake set without cracking.
