Friends, I promised you a long time ago that I’d share with you how to make what is (for reals) quite possibly the greatest cheesecake – nay, dessert – I have ever created.

I wouldn’t lie to you, would I? Nope.

And let’s not forget, healthy choices aren’t just about organic rabbit food.

Balance. Right? Right.

So let’s talk about Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake, then. I feel like fanfare should blare whenever those words are typed together.

Picture it: August 2012. A certain blogger was about to approach a certain birthday and knew that not just any traditional birthday cake would do. Although Chocolate Truffle Cake is perfection and should never be kicked out of anyone’s party, ever.

Still, it was time for a change. So I (yeah yeah, we were talking about me, surprise!) found something at Tammy’s Recipes, thanks to Pinterest (which by the way I refuse to visit right now since I always become way too obsessed and wind up telling Rob that he has approximately 57 new things to do around the house and then I wonder why a recipe for crock pot chicken has, in fact, never “changed my life”. Is there something wrong with me?).

I fell in love with this beautiful cheesecake. However, I felt like it needed a bit of a shake-up.

I dig white chocolate. I dig chocolate in general. Still…I wanted something a little jazzier.

Then the heavens opened and the angels sang and a voice whispered two sweet words in my ear: Peanut butter


I have to tell you, I took a total stab at it and added a cup of peanut butter instead of the white chocolate as instructed and it worked tremendously well for my tastes and, as evidenced by the approval I received and the rate at which the cake disappeared, the tastes of everyone else who ate it.

Still, you may want to add more if you want a more intense peanut butter flavor. I can’t speak to how that would affect the texture of the cream cheese, though, so be warned.

Once the cake was baked and cooled, it was time to make the chocolate glaze. Just look at it. Take a minute and soak it in.

And in case you were wondering: Yes. It tastes as good as it looks.

In fact the general consensus was “It takes just like a peanut butter cup”. What else do you need to know?

Whether it’s for a birthday, anniversary or a Wednesday night, you need to make this cheesecake NOW. And feel free to invite me over to help you, um, get rid of it.

It’s the least I can do.

Sharing with these amazing bloggers.

  1. Um, yes please.

  2. you had me at peanut butter…I think that was a good choice over the white chocolate (I’m not a fan). I’m def going to try this – for my Super Bowl party!

    • Yeeeeah I’m on the fence with white chocolate. Lindt makes a white chocolate and coconut bar that I absolutely die over. Otherwise? Meh. I hope you DO try it and I hope you love it!!

  3. Look delicious, but just one question. The instructions say to layer on peanut butter than chocolate, which appears to be the opposite from the photos. Was that an intentional variation? Does it make a difference? Thanks!

  4. Oh. My. Goodness.

    Would it be wrong to want to make this for myself and eat it all without sharing?

  5. I kind of hate you right now. In a totally good way. My anniversary is next week – balance, right? I’m pinning this!

    • Seriously – it’s outstanding. My mom and husband both swear that it tasted even better the day after, when it had a lot more time to set up. Dude, whatever. It was good from the moment I licked the batter off the spoon.

  6. The recipe is for a graham cracker crust but the crust looks chocolate?

  7. Oh.My.Goodness.
