Sweet Bliss: Starbucks-Style Cranberry Bliss Bars for Serious Eats

Starbucks-style cranberry bliss bars
Confession: I get a little thrill every year when Starbucks rolls out their holiday menu, that sugar bomb-laden collection of eggnog and gingerbread lattes, frosted sugar cookies...and especially the Cranberry Bliss Bar. Don't get confused by the fact that "cranberry" is in the title--these are very much the opposite of health food.
Starbucks-style cranberry bliss bars

And this week for my entry over at Serious Eats, I tried a homemade version which I adapted from the Mr. Breakfast website. While the bars don't taste exactly like the 'bucks version, they are very good: dense, moist cake studded with tart cranberries and sweet white chocolate, and a veritable winter wonderland of cream cheese frosting and white chocolate drizzled on top. So sweet, they're bound to bring on a holidaze.

You can check out the full recipe on Serious Eats.

Man, I used to work at a bookstore with a Starbucks attached to it and they used to bring us samples of their Christmas stuff every so often. I bought more of these cranberry bliss bars than I can count - they're amazing!

These would bring on a holidaze and surely a sugar coma as well... Which is always welcome when the weather gets really cold in NY... :)
