Hands down, Thanksgiving meal is my favorite of the year.
Every single part of it is fabulous… the appetizers, the side dishes, the main meal.
But you know me, I cant say no to a delicious dessert!
These were inspired by these bars from Krusteaz and my love of cheesecake. You could certainly just use the box mix bars as well as a box mix of no-bake cheesecake.
The reason I am so in love with these Cheesecake and Pumpkin Gingersnap Bars in a Jar is not only for the delectable flavor… but for their convenience. I like grabbing a bar and plopping down in front of the TV later on Thanksgiving night. I like that I can stick them into any nook and cranny in the fridge because its overflowing with turkey and mashed potato leftovers. I love that its the perfect serving size. (for me!)
