If you like peanut butter and chocolate as much a I do, this Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake will be showing up in your dreams for quite some time.
This is no ordinary cheesecake.
Not only is it overloaded with peanut butter cups, but each layer has just a little surprise…
Let’s start with the crust. This peanut butter cup cheesecake called for an extra special crust. Enter: Nutter Butter cookies and butter. Perfection.
Next: the cheesecake. Plain, you might guess? No, no. Peanut butter cheesecake, kids. Oh yeah. Rich and creamy with a layer of peanut butter cups nestled in the center.
While I could have stopped right there and had a mighty fine cheesecake, this particular cheesecake was for my mama’s birthday. I needed to fancy it up a bit. So I did the right thing and loaded on more peanut butter cups, peanut butter drizzle, and a hefty helping of chocolate ganache.
This Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake is the ultimate peanut butter/chocolate lover’s dessert!

Is there any way to make the crust if I don’t have a food processor?

Awesome, awesome, recipes!!!!! Thanks 🙂
THIS LOOKS AMAZING…I HAVE A QUESTION…YOU PUT 20 MINI P. BUTTER C UPS IN THE CHEESECAKE PART AND 20 MINI IN THE TOPPING. IS THAT A TOTAL OF 40 RESEES OR 20 IN TOTAL.. AND IN THE CHEESECAKE PART DO YOU PUT THE RESEES RIGHT AFTER TAKING IT OUT OF THE OVEN OR WAIT TIL IT COOLS…
Stephanie Brubaker says
Hi, Aida! It’s a total of 40 Reese’s all together. You will put the ones on top immediately after taking it out of the oven – this way they melt just enough to stick to the top. Enjoy!
