Yum! These sound delicious! Hope you don't mind, but think I'll use sugar!!!
I just looked at the nutritional information, and these are 19 grams of fat per bar. I would not call that low fat. The Low Fat in the name is very confusing.
This gets 5-stars for flavor. I used reduced calorie cream cheese, chopped pecans, and also added some shredded coconut. I think this recipe would work better using an 8x8" pan. The graham cracker crust was paper thin in my 9x13" pan. When I began trying to spread the cream cheese mixture, it was all just sticking to the spatula. I decided to mix up the crumbs and cheese together, and made it as a trifle. The flavor of this recipe makes you feel like your at an ice cream parlor, but without the ice cream. Thinking about it, this would go great with ice cream. "HEY!".... Uh-Oh, Gotta run before it's all gone, thanks for sharing the recipe. :)
