Creme Brulee Cheesecake Bars | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Yep, another Betty Crocker recipe!!

I have to be honest – I’m not a cookie mix kind of person. They are just not something I normally keep on hand. Maybe it’s because I never thought to do anything other than just make regular cookies from those mixes, because after my trip to the Betty Crocker kitchens, I’ve realized that cookie mixes are good for more than just cookies!!

These were my favorite thing that I tried. True – I am a cheesecake lover. And I love creme brulee. So I knew before I even tried these that I was going to love them. But I loved them so much that I couldn’t get them out of my mind, and I had to make them when I got home.

Luckily, my family got together the night after I made these, and I took some to them – otherwise, I honestly think I could eat a whole pan of these myself!!

The only thing I would do differently next time is to add the toffee bits when there is a minute or two left on the baking time so that the toffee melts down just a little bit. With the bars that I had at Betty Crocker, I couldn’t tell it was toffee bits on the top, but obviously – from my picture – you can clearly see that they are toffee bits. I think if the toffee was melted just a little bit, the creme brulee aspect would be more apparent. But then again, no one really minded because we finished off the whole pan of these with no problem!!

    Did you know that creme brulee is my favorite dessert of all time? True story. I need to make these, especially because I don't have a blow torch to my name and thus can't make a true proper creme brulee.

    These sound SO good!!!

  17. Kellie says:

    Looks and sounds great…but…how can this be creme brulee if it isn’t burned? The literal meaning of brulee is burned. Just curious.

    • Deborah says:

      I think that the original recipe was called that because the flavors mimic those in creme brulee. And like I mentioned in the post, I would put on the toffee pieces when there are a few minutes left of the baking time so that they would melt down. But either way, they are delicious!
