“These taste truly decadent. Created by food blogger April Athena, these bars have 33% less sugar than the regular sugar-sweetened version.”

Ingredients

    • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
    • 1 tablespoon Truvia® Cane Sugar Blend
    • ¼ cup plus 2 tablespoons butter, melted
    • 4 (8 ounce) packages reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
    • ½ cup Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend
    • 2 tablespoons flour
    • ½ cup light sour cream
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 3 eggs
    • ½ bag (about 227g) caramels, unwrapped
    • 2 tablespoons water, divided
    • ½ cup finely chopped walnuts

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine graham cracker crumbs, Truvia® Cane Sugar Blend, and melted butter in a medium bowl. Press crumb mixture firmly into a foiled 9" x 13" pan. Bake crust at 350°F for 10 minutes.
  • 2 In a separate bowl, combine softened cream cheese, Truvia® Brown Sugar Blend, and flour with a hand mixer. Next, add sour cream and vanilla extract and continue mixing. Finally, mix in eggs.
  • 3 Heat caramels and water in microwave for 30 seconds until melted. Pour about 34 of the caramel sauce into cheesecake batter and mix. Pour batter onto crust.
  • 4 Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes.
  • 5 Cut cooled bars into 24 (approximately 2" square) bites. Store refrigerated.
  • 6 Top bites with chopped walnuts and drizzle with remaining caramel sauce before serving.
