This chocolate peanut butter cheesecake is so rich and creamy it will melt in your mouth.
I had an old recipe for a no bake cheesecake so I thought I would adapt it to include peanut butter and chocolate and I'm glad I did. It really turned out heavenly.
Well, it actually turned out to be 2 no bake cheesecakes. By the time I added the peanut butter to everything else there was enough for 2, which worked out great. I wanted to try a new crust with Oreo crumbs and peanut butter instead of using butter with the crumbs.
But when I started making the first crust I didn't have enough Oreo crumbs so I mixed them with graham cracker crumbs, which ended up turning out great with the peanut butter.
Here is the crusts I used. You can use 2 ready made crusts if you prefer or halve the recipe to make just 1 peanut butter cheesecake.
You will need a large mixing bowl, electric mixer, rubber spatula, 8 inch round pie plate
Make sure you have everything before you begin.
Cream together and press in 8 inch pie pan.
This crust would look really good using a springform pan. You would be able to see the marble effect of both crumbs mixed together and it would impress your guests.
Set crusts aside
You can garnish with whatever you like, just make sure to cover and refrigerate them when you are done.
This is how I garnished my No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecakes
I melted some chocolate chips and drizzled it on top of the first cheesecake. You could also spread the chocolate on top of the cheesecake instead of drizzling it on. I also drizzles chocolate syrup on top of the first one for an extra chocolatey taste.
Then I used the left over melted peanut butter that I brushed the crust with and mixed it with some peanut butter chips so I had enough to drizzle on top of the second cheesecakes.
They both turned out fantastic.
If you decide to make only one no bake chocolate peanut butter cheesecake, the first one is more chocolatey, while the second one is more peanut buttery. You can decide which one you prefer to make.
