 Now bring on those tasty Summertime Sweets recipes :)

White Chocolate and Lime Cheesecake Bars:


  • 7 ounces high-quality white chocolate (such as Lindt), chopped, plus white chocolate curls for garnish (optional) 
  • 27 Reverse Oreos (golden cookie with chocolate filling)  
  • 1/2 cup chilled whipping cream 
  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, room temperature 
  • 3 tablespoons sugar 
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice 
  • 1 tablespoon finely grated lime peel Lime slices or lime twists (for garnish - optional)


Line 8x8x2-inch square baking pan with foil, extending over all sides. Stir chopped white chocolate in small metal bowl set over saucepan of barely simmering water until melted and smooth. Remove bowl from over water. Finely grind cookies in processor. Add 2 tablespoons melted white chocolate and blend until mixture clumps together. Firmly press mixture onto bottom of prepared pan. Chill while making filling.
Beat whipping cream in medium bowl until peaks form. Beat cream cheese, sugar, lime juice, and lime peel in large bowl until smooth. Beat in remaining melted white chocolate. Fold in whipped cream in 2 additions; spread over prepared crust. Chill until filling is slightly firm, at least 2 hours. Using foil as aid, lift cheesecake out of pan. Cut into 9 bars. Garnish with chocolate curls, if desired, and lime slices or twists.

These bars were served at my wedding kitchen shower, hosted by the wonderful Anne and Tia Shuyler. I have made these many times for company, and they are absolutely fabulous.

Since my sister in law got married this weekend, I didn't have time to make these bars, so I don't have any of my own pictures of these scrumptious treats. However, I was able to find one online and also thought I would share a few pictures from my wonderful wedding shower where I first tasted these bars.

  1. Anything sweet that I don't need to bake is a winner in my book, but you had me at white chocolate. :)

  2. White chocolate! I forgot that I liked white chocolate. And I just remembered I like key lime pie. These look fantastic! I'm pinning the recipe!


I would love to hear from you! I read each and every comment and they make my day!
