Remember no bake cheesecake, no bake cake balls from the summertime cookout you attended the other year? Yea! No bake recipes are the best. Literally, your refrigerator does most of the cooking process which in this case is not really ‘cooking’ but ‘thawing’. No bake recipes are way to go because you can leave the dessert in the refrigerator while you sleep. Unlike the case of baking in an oven.
Now this no bake chocolate peanut butter cheesecake is the next best thing to ice cream. It’s rich in minute chocolate cups and peanuts. It’s rich in cheese and whipping cream. Just a bite of it will definitely get you craving for more of it. It contains brown sugar just like Christmas cookies and this makes it healthy as much as delicious.
Thinking of the best event that this recipe goes for, I would rather have this chocolate peanut butter cheesecake in my fridge and cut bars to eat alone every day until it’s all exhausted. However, I could manage to serve this as dessert to a guest who visits impromptu.
