White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake is the cheesecakes to rival all desserts. Full of peanut butter and white chocolate goodness!
This recipe is one of several pride and joy recipes for me! I love all the recipes that I share, but I do end up having personal favorites, and ones that I love a teeeeeny bit more than others.
I wouldn’t share anything that wasn’t stupendous in the first place. It has to be a winner or it doesn’t make the cut and it ends up in the annual recounting of my recipe fails. It has to be great according to my own opinion, and the opinion of the friends, family, and my significant other (who, as you know, definitely eats a lot of my recipe creations, and often finishes them off single-handedly).
Among my usual test subjects, it was unanimous: this white chocolate peanut butter cheesecake is as decadent as it gets. It would be hard to top this. And it’s totally amazing.
To me, the only other recipe that it rivals in terms of decadence is my peanut butter cup brownie torte recipe. That is still one of my absolute favorite recipes of all-time. Yeah, it’s no coincidence that some of the most decadent recipes I have are based around peanut butter!
That incredible torte is stacked high with layers of fudgy brownies, peanut butter buttercream, chocolate ganache, and whole, full-size Reese’s cups. It’s truly spectacular.
This white chocolate peanut butter cheesecake is nothing short of spectacular either.
The crust is basically a massively thick and soft peanut butter cookie. It’s technically a double batch of my easy peanut butter cookies recipe (only 3 ingredients to those cookies!). Baked to perfection, still soft and chewy in the center and crisp on the edges, this super thick peanut butter blondie is unreal all on its own.
But we aren’t gonna stop there. Nope.
Once the crust cools, I covered it with an entire layer of white chocolate Reese’s peanut butter cups. Then I loaded it high (really high!) with a no-bake white chocolate peanut butter cheesecake. All in all, the cheesecake layer is nearly two inches thick.
To top it off, I sprinkled it generously with chopped white chocolate Reese’s peanut butter cups, a drizzle of melted peanut butter, and a drizzle of melted white chocolate.
Let’s put it this way – if you’re unsure about this dessert, besides the nearly two-inch thick layer of cheesecake and the inch-thick layer of peanut butter cookie crust, it has a pound and a half of white chocolate Reese’s cups in it!!! That should persuade you!
