A few days after Halloween ended, we started seeing Starbucks advertising their holiday drinks already and the infamous Red Cups started popping up everywhere. Yup, it’s officially the holiday season and I am super PUMPED because I love the holidays 🙂
One of the treats I’ve always wanted to try but too frugal to buy are the Cranberry Bliss Bars at Starbucks. They look soooo goood but I typically don’t buy sweets from Starbucks due to their price point. When I stumbled across this recipe to make a replica version, I had to give it a go. Mind you, since I’ve never had the original Cranberry Bliss Bars at Starbucks, I can’t tell you if this is an exact replica but I can tell you it tastes delicious nonetheless!! I’ll be sure to add an update once I’ve tried it for comparison.
This delicious Cranberry Bar is kinda like a cookie bar – topped with a cream cheese frosting and garnished with chopped cranberries. The original recipe I followed asked for orange extract which I did not have and will probably not buy since I would rarely use it in baking. Instead, I opted for orange juice and some orange zest and it tasted awesome!
Once baked, I just cut them up into triangles though I could have just left them as squares… Recipe below!
