Thank you LUNA Bar for sponsoring today’s post. All love for their gluten free bars is my own! #LUNAgf
So I really wanted to make Blueberry White Chocolate Rice Krispie Treats but I also really wanted to make Blueberry White Chocolate Cheesecake, so I decided not to sacrifice any wants (AKA any deliciousness) and make them both. So we are blessed with no bake Blueberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Rice Krispie Treats!
I got the idea of glamming up good ol’ rice krispie treats after I devoured my package of gluten free LUNA bars, including their new Chocolate Cupcake – OMY – that was shipped to my door. In fact all of LUNA bars are now gluten free! (You can check out all their delicious flavors here) I was supposed to save the bars so they could be in some of these pics, but I had no self control. I ate them all – and surprisingly didn’t feel bad about it because they are low glycemic, don’t contain any artificial flavors and under 200 calories – but then I realized I needed them for the post and then almost felt bad about eating them all and then remembered how good they were and immediately bought more. No regrets.
But I digress. I was inspired by my gluten free Blueberry Bliss LUNA Bar muse with its crispy treat like base, sweet blueberry layer and creamy drizzle to create a dessert with a similar flavor profile. So while LUNA Bars are the perfect guilt-free on the go snack, Blueberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Krispie Treats are the perfect indulgent gluten free dessert (make sure you Rice Krispies or generic brand specify gluten free).
While the name of this dessert might sound like a mouthful, these bars are very simple to make – I mean, after all what is easier than rice krispies?! Or tastier?! It is one of the worlds unsolved mysteries how just three ingredients can create such addicting results. And if you thought just three ingredients were addicting, try adding a 4th – white chocolate. That’s right, along with butter and marshmallows, these rice krispies are melted with white chocolate. They are to live for! but wait, it gets better…
The white chocolate rice krispies are topped with a layer of no bake white chocolate cheesecake. I was licking the bowl, the spatula, my clean fingers to savor every last drop of this white chocolate cheesecake. After the velvety cheesecake is poured over the white chocolate rice krispies and chilled, its topped with the ultimate blueberry sauce of blueberries simmered with orange juice, lemon juice, lemon zest, vanilla and sugar. You have permission to drool.
For the ultimate chocolate lover and for those who want to really impress their guests, the cheesecake is then drizzled with more white chocolate.
Layers of crispy, gooey white chocolate marshmallow rice krispies topped with creamy, silky white chocolate cheesecake topped with sweet, fresh blueberry sauce topped with ribbons of white chocolate…
Blueberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Rice Krispie Treats. The perfect indulgent, gluten free dessert. LUNA Bars. The perfect guilt free, gluten free snack. There is a time and a place for both. And that time is now. Right now.
