Make sure that your cream cheese is softened before starting this recipe. If your cream cheese is too hard it can result in lumps in your bars.
If you’re looking to feed a crowd, this is an easy recipe to make and double. Simply double the ingredients and use a 9 x 13” pan. Be sure to line the pan with parchment paper for less mess when removing the bars.
