Peanut Butter Cups & Cheesecake.....

Whilst on one of my many trips around the food blogosphere searching for something to make last weekend I came across a dessert recipe and pics that looked good enough to eat right off the monitor.
(I tried-didn't work, and the dog was looking at me in a funny way.)

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and Chocolate Cheesecake Bars from The Cookin' Canuck.

What's not to like about cheesecake, chocolate and peanut butter, all tied together in one nice little package?

Mind you, I've never made cheesecake, so my expectations weren't that high.  They should have been- they came out great.  

I made a simple graham cracker crust in a foil lined 8x8 in. pan., then I mixed the filling.
Licking my fingers with frosting off the mixing hook brought me back to when I was a kid and my mother would give me the beaters after she'd make frosting for a cake.  Good stuff.

Then it was chop up some peanut butter cups, fold 'em into the filling and scrape the filling into the pan on the crust.  Cook for 35 mins. or so, let it cool for an unbearable two hours, then refrigerate for another 3 longggggg hours.

Then, melt 2 oz. of bitterwseet chocolate in the microwave, and drizzle on top.

Cut into a dozen bars, and enjoy.

 The experiment was a success.  A very delicious success.

If you like the ingredients in these I'd say start making 'em now!


  1. I'm drooling right now...literally. LOL. I am limiting my sweets as of this week and this is the only way I can have them without cheating! Looks good and I LOVE Cookin' Canuk!

  2. These looks delicious! Can you mail me some if there are any left?

  3. They were realllllly good. I'd mail 'em to you but they'd be a mess by the time they got to you! On the other hand, you could make them for Russ when he returns!
