I want to up the ante. Cheesecake is the mother of all desserts if you ask me, but Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake?
Oh man, we’re talking about the best ever delectable dessert to ever hit your taste buds.
This recipe doesn’t only have an amazing flavor, but it also looks amazing too.
It’s great to bring to a family or friends get together. You’ll be the talk of the party if you bring this amazing magazine worthy cheesecake!
I really enjoy making cheesecake. I don’t get to bake a lot. Running my own business, homeschooling my kids, and taking care of the household, well I’ve got a lot on my plate.
Cheesecake is fun to make though. The best part is eating them!
With 3 teenagers in the house, this cheesecake didn’t last very long! Not even a day, if you can believe it!
Cheesecake is my husband’s favorite dessert, so I made this especially for him.
It’s easier to make than it looks. I hope my tutorial photos will help too.
