I have always made the walnut crust with the walnut sprinkle on top cheesecake bars at Christmas time. This time after looking through lots of recipes I thought I would change it up and use the same crust but make the filling all gooey and sweet. This is a combination of lots of recipes with my own personal touch. The only baking you do is the crust but it is well worth it. The crust is crispy and nutty. After all does it get any better than cherries marshmallows and walnuts?
