This is not my own recipe but I’ve made it and it really turned out well and is quite yummy. I thought I’d share it with you. Enjoy!

Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bars

For Cake Base:
2 sticks Imperial Margarine (or butter if you want to indulge) — softened
1 and 1/4 cups brown sugar– packed
3 eggs
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 and 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup minced dried cranberries
1/4 cup Lindt or Perugina or other quality white chocolate — coarsely chopped
1/4 cup minced candied ginger

For Frosting:
4 ounce cream cheese — softened
1 and 1/2 cups powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons butter — softened
1 teaspoon vanilla

For Garnish:
2 Tablespoons minced dried cranberries
1/3 cup white chocolate chips (e.g. Ghiradelli or Guittard) — melted

Preheat oven to 350 and lightly grease a 9×13 pan.

Beat butter and sugar together for the cake base, and add eggs/vanilla beating until fluffy. Sift together flour, ginger, and salt and then add to the butter/sugar mixture beating well. Fold in the cranberries, chocolate and ginger. Spread thick batter in pan and bake for about 20 minutes or until light golden.

When cake is cooled, mix all frosting ingredients together and spread a thin layer over the cake. Immediately sprinkle with the minced cranberries. Then use a cake decorating bag of melted white chocolate with a tiny decorating tip (like the size used for writing on cakes) and drizzle the chocolate over the cake.

Cut this into bars immediately because the white chocolate hardens pretty fast and makes cake cutting messy.

I found this recipe some time back at Mr. Give em a visit. I am sure you are going to find even more that you want to try.
