Sweet, and creamy peanut butter cheesecake bars topped with milk chocolate, with a thick Oreo crust!

Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bars

 I’ve never made cheesecake before, but these bars are so easy to make, you just can’t go wrong. They look impressive, and taste divine. Peanut butter and chocolate fan? You are going to love these!

For the topping, I used milk chocolate, but you can use dark chocolate, or even white chocolate! Whatever you prefer. You can even change the crust to your preferred cookie if you’d like.

Enjoy!

    Chocolate and peanut butter is the most epic combination, and cheesecake just happens to be pretty much my favorite thing in the world. Clearly I need these in my life!

    Oh my word, this looks amazing. I just stopped my husband from buying a discount pack of Philadelphia cream cheese at the grocery today, poo pooing the idea that he’d really make cheesecake before we move out of our house this weekend. Totally regretting that decision now. YUM!

    I’ve never made cheesecake, and I don’t HATE it but I don’t LOVE it either. This recipe makes cheesecake look decadent and delicious. I’ll have to try these and then remake them.

    Do you mind if I reblog this?

    Holy guacamole, I’m going to get fat just looking at your blog!
    I love cheesecake. And these sound amazing. But I admit I have never made a baked cheesecake and have only ever tried one once. I don’t really have the facilities to make one here so I will have to get by looking at your lovely pics.

      Thank you, Sam! I’ve never made a full-size cheesecake before, and it’s probably because I need to buy a proper pan for it 🙂
