This Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Bars recipe is sure to be a winner! Who doesn’t love Reese’s cups, cream cheese and chocolate?
Taking a glance through the dessert category on my blog one might think I like chocolate.
And peanut butter cups.
And you would be right! I love chocolate the most but peanut butter cups come in a close second!
I love them together or separate or just by themselves!
My DIY hubby is not much of a cheesecake fan but he loved these bars.
How can you go wrong with peanut butter cups?
The original recipe I was working from used chocolate and peanut butter morsels, which I didn’t have.
I substituted actual peanut butter cups and chocolate chips which worked out great!
Which do you like better, peanut butter cups or chocolate by itself?
