Description

A rich peanut butter cheesecake with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. The perfect no-bake summer dessert.


Ingredients

For the crust

  • 1 package Oreo cookies
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the filling

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, full fat
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream (or milk)
  • 1 package (8 ounces) Cool Whip (thawed)
  • 10 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (chopped)

For the garnish

  • 6 Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter (optional)
  • 1/4 cup hot fudge sauce (optional)

Instructions

  1. Pepare a 9-inch springform pan by lightly greasing the edges of the pan with cooking spray, and then wiping gently with a paper towel.
  2. Grind the cookies into a fine crumb using a food processor or blender.
  3. In a small bowl, melt the butter in the microwave for 30 to 45 seconds. Pour the melted butter over the cookie crumbs and stir until the crumbs are well coated.
  4. Pour the crumbs into your springform pan and press firmly into the bottom and up on the sides to create a thick crust.
  5. Refrigerate or freeze the crust while you are preparing the filling.

For the filling

  1. Using the paddle attachment of your Kitchen Aid mixer, whip cream cheese on medium speed until light and fluffy for 2-3 minutes. Add peanut butter spread and continue to beat until well mixed.
  2. Add the vanilla extract and heavy whipping cream, increase mixing speed to medium-high and whip for 2-3 minutes to add air into the batter.
  3. Once all ingredients are mixed together, add Cool Whip and beat into batter. Scrape the bottom of the bowl with a spatula and mix together.
  4. Chop Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups into small pieces and drop into batter. Stir to combine. Empty filling into prepared pie crust.
  5. Chill in the refrigerator for at least two hours (if time allows). Serve chilled.

For the garnish

  1. Chop Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups into small pieces and spread over the top of the cheesecake.
  2. Melt peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl for 45-60 seconds. Stir until smooth. If not completely melted, return to the microwave in 15 second increments until melted. Drizzle over top of cheesecake with a spoon.
  3. Heat hot fudge in the microwave in 30 second increments until melted. Caution, jar will be hot! Stir until smooth and drizzle over cheesecake.
