Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 5 Tbsp unsalted butter melted
  • 16 oz cream cheese room temp
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup rainbow sprinkles

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 baking dish with aluminum foil, making sure the edges hang over on the sides.
  • In a medium bowl, stir together the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter.
  • Press crust into the bottom of the lined baking dish. Bake for 10 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together cream cheese, egg, sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy, approximately 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Gently fold in 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles. Spread the mixture over the crust.
  • Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles over the top. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the edges are golden and the cheesecake is set in the center.
  • Chill for at least 3 hours before removing and cutting into squares.

Notes

  • Use a preheated oven.
  • Line your baking tray with aluminium foil, for easy clean up.
  •  Make sure the aluminium foil is overhanging of at least 2 inches on each side; this will help you remove the cheesecake bars from the pan.
  • You can buy graham cracker crumbs from the grocery store, or you can make your own by pulsing sheets of graham crackers in your food processor or blender.
  • When pressing the crust into the pan, make sure you press down very firmly. A firmly packed crust bakes up nice and thick, and it won’t crumble much when sliced.
  • Make sure your ingredients are up to room temp.
  • Feel free to play around with different kinds of sprinkles!
  • If you can, go for pure vanilla extract.
  • Don't be shy with the sprinkles!
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve
