Yesterday was our wedding anniversary, and to celebrate I made these Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecakes. You see, cheesecakes hold a special place in our hearts because that is what we had for our wedding cake. So they make a frequent appearance in out house, especially for special occasions. Not only did we have cheesecake at our wedding, but my mom and I made them. All of them. For each table. Count ‘em – 27 cheesecakes! And then to add another layer of stress, I wanted three different flavors because I wanted everyone to be happy. So we had Oreo Cheesecake, White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake and Key Lime Cheesecake. If you wanted a different flavor then the one on your table, you had to try and get some from another table. And what I learned was that some people don’t share very well! But people are creative and passionate about their cheesecake, and they found a way to get what they wanted. Even today, friends still remind me of their cheesecake negotiations when talk of weddings comes up.
So back to these Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecakes. I am a fan of pretty much anything chocolate and peanut butter flavored, but peanut butter cups are one of my all-time favorite candies. I cannot have them in the house, otherwise I eat them all. I don’t always share very well, either. Hmmm, see a trend? These Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecakes are super easy, and I love that they are individually portioned so there is no need to worry about sharing. And in each bite is a bit of peanut butter cup. Does it get much better than that? Creamy cheesecake with an Oreo crust AND a peanut butter cup. I’m in cheesecake heaven.
