Chocolate-Peanut Cheesecake Bars
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 15 min. + chilling
These were great! I will definitely be making them again. I added some peanut butter chips to the ganache so it was more of a chocolate peanut butter topping.
A big hit all around. Glad I copied off the recipe to give along with the bars........
lineal, yes, you can make these with your own pb cookie recipe for the crust! I did just that yesterday, & they turned out great! I used chunky pb & deleted the peanuts because I was in a hurry. I also found out that the cheesecake layer had some moisture on it & had to dab the drops off with a paper towel so the chocolate ganache would stick well. But, this is now a favorite in our house!
In order to reduce the calories, saturated fat, cholesterol and probably the salt, I'm going to try this with my own PB cookie recipe. Has anyone else tried that?I'll also be cutting them in 1" x 2" pieces since, at 24 squares, they will be very big.
Next time I am going to try it without the peanuts. I liked it, but it was too many for my husband and kids.
There's nothing like the combination of flavors in these bars. They're sweet and salty and super delicious! I made them for a treat at Thanksgiving time and they disappeared! They were very easy to make, too!
