Peanut butter and chocolate has always been one of my favorite flavor combinations.  As a kid, back when I literally had zero interest in actual cooking, I would microwave peanut butter with chocolate chips and eat it with a spoon.  That brings back both embarrassing and delicious memories.  Add cheesecake in the mix, NO BAKE cheesecake…and I’m in heaven.

I adapted this recipe from one of my favorite blogs, Taste and Tell.  I check her site daily for new recipes.  Her recipes are delicious, simple, and always crowd-pleasers.  She got it from Rachael Ray, so that’s probably all the promotion I need to give it.  Two great cooks signing off on its deliciousness…it has to be good.

If you do require more arm twisting…Scout is willing to write these Cheesecake Bars a letter or recommendation.  She was VERY pleased with the final product.
