Cream Cheese Danish Bars


Have people over all summer long? We wanted a sweet treat that was simple to make and serve and this certainly fit the bill. It is great for a morning treat with breakfast or an after dinner bite. We can’t wait to try this with other flavors and toppings!

Verdict:

I was skeptical that this would turn out let alone that my kids would like it. They tend not to like the canned rolls but this was hard to tell what it was. It didn’t have that canned taste that the kids don’t like.

We are going to try this with different fruit toppings added to the top for different flavors.

    That sounds delicious! I wonder how it would turn out with a little fruit added? Blueberries maybe…. 😋

      Thank you! The best thing is you can change the vanilla to lemon or something else if you want to add fruit. Make it your own! Have fun with it!
