Made bars day ahead of time. Great serving option as people often just want a taste of cheesecake. Sauces easy to make. Will definitely to again. Great for buffet-style dinner party.

We did not call for sugar in the crust—it's tasty without it—and the sauces add sweetness. Arrange a mini buffet so guests may customize their pieces of our cheesecake bars with sauces and sprinkles.
