I’ve been on a little bit of a cheesecake kick the past week or so.
It started with these Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Bars  that I made for People.com. And they were so good that I had to make another batch.
But this time I swapped the cookies for peanut butter cups. The unopened bag sitting on my counter said they wanted me too. So I obliged.
It all starts with a simple graham cracker crust…
Cheesecake bars are super easy. No springform pan. No water bath. No fuss.
After you prepare the crust in an 8×8 baking dish, whip up the batter, mix in cut up peanut butter cups and bake away.
Then cool and cover with chocolate ganache.
And top it all off with more cut peanut butter cups. It’s the right thing.
Then, cut them into cute little squares and enjoy!
Like yum!!!!! These were so good and the perfect sweet snack size.
And you know what… this cheesecake comparison made me realize that as much as I love peanut butter cups, I think I’m an oreo cheesecake girl. But, I kinda feel like I’m cheating on my favorite chocolate candy.
