Peanut Butter Cup Cheescake


Proceed with caution. This was seriously and dangerously delicious. I can't put into words how amazing this was. All I can do, is express myself through song. You're welcome.


There's a party in my tummy. So yummy. So yummy. I think I'm going to try a chocolate cookie pie crust next time so there's even more chocolatey goodness going on!

Filling Ingredients:
Other Ingredients Needed:
  • 1 prepared graham cracker or chocolate cookie crust
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (for topping)


Place all of the filling ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Pour into prepared graham cracker or chocolate cookie crust and put in refrigerator.

Put 1 cup of chocolate chips in a microwave safe dish and melt in 15 second increments. Every 15 seconds, take them out of the microwave and stir. Keep heating and stirring until its melted and reached your desired consistency. This is called tempering the chocolate.

Once the chocolate is melted, pour and smooth over the top of the cheesecake filling. It's best when refrigerated overnight so it has time to set and the flavors have time to blend together.

Enjoy and Happy Eating!

  6. this looks amazing but i am a banana hater, what would you suggest subbing for that? maybe more tofutti? thanks!

  7. The reason I added was to give it more creaminess and sweetness without adding a refined sugar. Maybe try adding a different nut butter (like cashew?) or more tofutti? But I would maybe add a little more agave.

  13. Looks wonderful. Are store bought graham cracker crusts vegan?

  14. Jana - I'm sure not all of them are Vegan, but just be sure to read the ingredients. The one I found was an all natural & Vegan grahama cracker crust (I can't remember the brand name)!

  15. Just made these in mini graham pie crusts. Cut the recipe in half and it made 6 with some left over filling...which of course I had to eat. Sooo creamy and delicious. The chilled pies were amazing...just wish I didn't cut the recipe in half.

  18. Matthew, I just made this and it is scaring me, something about it doesn't look right. Is it really 1 1/2 cups of peanut butter and just one container of Tofutti? It has a very oily consistency, and the little bit that I tasted of it was overwhelmingly banana. It's in the fridge now, and I'm afraid to bring it to the party...

  19. Sonia - Thanks!

    Mrs. Tobb - Scary? That's not good! I'm sure all the ingredients are correct. Did you refrigerate it overnight? That's what helps it set. Also, it's going to have a "banana-y" taste to it. I don't know if I would say overwhelming, but you can tell there's banana in it!

  21. This looks so yummy, so yummy! I'm wondering if you or anyone tried making this using med/firm tofu instead of the "cream cheese." I always have tofu around but rarely the cream cheese substitute.

    I just found your blog Matthew and I'm loving you. You're on my favorites list now :)

  22. jenna - Thanks so much! I'm so glad you found Vegan Heartland. I haven't tried tofu in this recipe, but I have tried it in other cheesecake recipes and I have to say I wasn't a fan. But everyone's taste buds are different! If you end up trying it - let me know how it turns out for ya!
