If there’s nothing you love more in the world than the combination of chocolate and peanut butter you must try this Reese’s Peanut Butter Cheesecake recipe! Oreo crust, creamy peanut butter cheesecake filling loaded with chocolate chips, milk chocolate ganache with a pile of chopped Reese’s cups on top=pure bliss!!!
Peanut butter filling between two chocolate layer tastes like gigantic peanut butter cup, AWESOME!!!
As a true lover of the world’s best flavor combination, it’s been really a long time since I published my last CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER RECIPE!!! So I had to change that immediately!!!
OK, I know, it’s summer! All kinds of fresh and juicy fruits are in full season, but I have become a bit boring. Light, refreshing, no bake summer recipes was great, especially my White Chocolate Blueberry Lasagna, it was a huge hit, but I was craving for CHOCOLATE!!! And by chocolate I meant real chocolate, like dark or milk chocolate, not white chocolate!
I simply had to make something rich and decadent, something overloaded with chocolate!!!
When I started brainstorming some chocolate dessert ideas I thought if there’s no fruits included, what would be the perfect match?! Peanut butter, of course!!! Chocolate and peanut butter is the world greatest combo of all times!!! Next dilemma was in form to pack this yummy combo? I already have Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge, bars , Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Valentine’s Hearts , Parfait , Buckeye Brownie Cookies … But the best of all were my Cheesecake Truffles and Mini Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecakes .
I decided to combine two of mine favorite chocolate- PB cheesecake recipes in one and so I came up with this mouthwatering Reese’s Peanut Butter Cheesecake. I made regular size cheesecake with so many flavors (Triple Chocolate, Pecan Pie, Pumpkin, Bailey’s… but I’ve never made PB and chocolate combo.
As a base for this cheesecake I made my favorite Oreo crust. Everything is better with Oreo, right?! Since I liked so much the texture of my PB truffles, I decided to add chocolate chips in this cheesecake, too. For the topping I add a thick layer of smooth and silky chocolate ganache. Milk chocolate ganache, dripping around the cake…YUM!!!
This cake already has chocolate cookie crust, cheesecake filling overloaded with chocolate chips and chocolate ganache on top, but I simply had to crowned my cake with chopped Reese’s cups, a lot of them…just because!!! I thought, there’s no such thing as too much chocolate!
That’s all I had to tell you about this this ridiculously rich and decadent Reese’s Peanut Butter Cheesecake.
I’ve just devoured the last piece of it and if I stay here for a few more minutes I’ll start drooling over the pictures craving for another slice!
