Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake

Cheesecake Recipes | 1 comment

This is so good – like a Peanut Butter Cup! This recipe makes a large dessert, and I have made it a few times to take to functions, where it has proved extremely popular. For a better “Peanut Butter Cup” effect, I have also made it with a chocolate wafer crumbs in crust in place of graham wafers.

    This cheesecake is easy to make and very decadent. My adult children ask me to make it for them each year for their birthdays. Thanks for the recipe!
