Cheesecake happens to be one of my favorite desserts and it’s no secret how I feel about chocolate and peanut butter.
Ok, so put these three things together and HoLy MoLy do you have an amazing dessert.
OOOOHHHHH baby these things good!
Throw all diets out the window for a day so you can make these and eat one, or two, maybe even three. Honestly, it’s so hard to stop at just one.
I have this cookbook titled The Essential Food Storage Cookbook. I love it. It’s a great cookbook and believe it or not that is where I got this recipe. Now most people probably don’t keep peanut butter cups in their food storage, right? Well, I’m here tell you that I do! When you hit the stores after every big holiday to stock up on leftover candy like I do, then it’s pretty much a guarantee that there will be peanut butter cups in the food storage room.
I look at it this way — you might as well put stuff in your food storage that you KNOW you will eat and I know everyone in my house will eat peanut butter cups!
Hope you have a great weekend!
