Cranberries and white chocolate are perfect complements in these irresistible Cranberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Bars! - Bake or Break

Let’s talk about synergy. If you need a refresher, it’s the idea that the whole of something is greater than the sum of its parts. Don’t worry, friends. I’m not going to get all intellectual on you. Rather, I’m fascinated by flavor synergy, the magical thing that happens when two good flavors meet to make an even more amazing flavor.

Those pairs will likely differ among us. But to me, cranberries and white chocolate are a great example. Cranberries are a bit tart and not really something I enjoy eating on their own. White chocolate is really sweet to my palate, and I don’t often eat it or bake with it. But putting the two together lets the tartness and sweetness balance each other to make something even better than either of the two alone.

And let’s not forget the other flavors that are present here to make these cheesecake bars so very good. There’s a hint of orange in the cranberry swirl to add a bite of citrus. Vanilla shows up in the crust and in the cheesecake, too. Those little hints of flavor all work together to help make these bars irresistible!

  1. Jennifer, I look forward to making these with the local cranberries when they are available. I did note that cheesecake is misspelled on the Bold With Butter site. Not sure if that is something you can get them to correct or not but I thought I’d mention it to you. This one looks WONDERFUL!! I think the combination sounds amazing. Thanks for another perfect timing on what ingredients are attracting me and that I want to bake with today!
