NO BAKE REESE’S PEANUT BUTTER CHEESECAKE
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups have always been my favorite candy. I have a slight addiction to both peanut butter and chocolate. They are just perfect together. My Quick and Easy Peanut Butter Pie happens to be one of my favorite desserts. I make it quite frequently. But after making this No Bake Reese’s Peanut Butter Cheesecake, I think I have a new favorite homemade dessert.
When we dine out and I manage to save room for dessert, I am always drawn to whichever peanut butter and chocolate dessert that happens to be on the menu. I think any dessert that contains both peanut and chocolate has a sure chance at being delish.
I noticed a peanut butter cheesecake on the menu at one of my favorite restaurants last week but I had not left any room for dessert.
