Chocolate Peanut Butter No-Bake Cheesecake Bars

Ingredients

  • CRUST:
  • 2 C. crushed graham crackers
  • 1/2 C. melted butter
  • PEANUT BUTTER LAYER:
  • 8 oz. cream cheese room temperature
  • 1/2 C. creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/3 C. powdered sugar
  • CHOCOLATE LAYER:
  • 1 C. chocolate chips
  • 1/4 C. heavy whipping cream
  • 8 oz. cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 C. powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. 1. Prepare an 8x8 (or 9x9) pan by greasing it and/or lining it with parchment paper.
  2. 2. Combine crushed graham crackers and melted butter. Pour into pan and firmly press flat. Put in the freezer.
  3. 3. Peanut Butter Layer: Beat cream cheese with peanut butter, vanilla and powdered sugar until smooth and creamy. Remove pan from the freezer and spread out the peanut butter filling. Place in the freezer again.
  4. 4. In a microwave safe bowl (I like using a pyrex measuring cup) add chocolate chips and heavy whipping cream. Microwave in 30 second increments, stirring each time and continue until smooth. Let cool for a 5 minutes. Meanwhile, beat cream cheese with vanilla and powdered sugar. Then add chocolate sauce and combine. Spread over the top of the peanut butter layer and then place pan in the FRIDGE. Let chill for at least 2 hours.
  5. 5. To easily cut, run a knife until warm water, wipe dry and cut!
