Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars

Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars

I kind of wish we didn’t make these. Not because they were gross or anything but because they were so amazingly good and I was on a diet and this just ruined all my hard work!! Two days of staying out of the kitchen wasted! I just couldn’t keep my hands off these. I feel defeated. I also feel happy and overjoyed and jolly and…..merry? I don’t know, I just feel really good when I eat these. They are so ridiculously good. I want to share them with the world. Everyone should have one of these. It will change your life.  Okay, maybe not your life but your mood for sure.
