NO BAKE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER CHEESECAKE











NO BAKE CHOCOLATE PEANUT BUTTER CHEESECAKE

This was a very easy cheesecake to put together and if you love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter, you’re sure to love this.  In fact, if you use a dark chocolate like Lindt 70% or 85% and sweeten your cheesecake accordingly, the chocolate flavor will be even more pronounced.  The special topping is clearly peanut butter goodness over-the-top!
