Recipe Details


Kids and adults alike go (pea)nuts for the combination of peanut butter and chocolate—and it’s not hard to see why. Here, we’re embracing our love for the two flavors in addition to our passion for cheesecake. A decadent cream cheese and peanut butter filling is spooned into graham cracker crusts, then topped with chocolate ganache and a dollop of sweetened whipped cream. The only thing as fabulous as these pies? You don’t have to turn the oven on!
