Brighten up any party by serving these festive cheesecake bars! Each treat is topped with swirls of rainbow colors and even has a purple, blue, green, yellow, orange and pink crust.
The soft and creamy bars are so much fun—they’ll definitely be a big hit at your next birthday party, potluck, sleepover—or any event, really.
This dessert starts with a blondie-style crust made with a Betty Crocker® white cake mix.
Divide the thick batter into 6 bowls and color one purple, blue, green, yellow, orange and pink using Betty Crocker® Gel Food Colors.
Reserve 1 tablespoon of each of the colored batters, then spoon dollops of the remaining batter all over the bottom of your baking pan. Have fun adding colors in any pattern you like!
The batter will be a bit lumpy at this point, so you'll need to flatten it a bit. It's easiest to get your hands slightly wet and use them to press down on the batter.
Cover the colorful cake batter with creamy cheesecake filling, then thin out the remaining colored batter with some milk.
Spoon small dollops of the thinned batter on top of the cheesecake filling.
Then drag a knife through the colors, swirling them as you go.
Bake for 20 minutes, then cover with tin foil and bake until the cheesecake sets. Covering the bars will keep the cake batter from browning and provide a bright and colorful dessert.
After the baked bars are cooled and then chilled, cut them into squares and serve!
