"These cheesecakes are incredibly delicious! I doubled the recipe, and like others have stated, the cheesecake part is not quite enough to fully cover the peanut butter cups. I bet if we made half as much more of the filling, it would be just right. I will definitely make these again. Thank you for sharing the recipe, Mary Ann Dell."

"I just made these this evening. Quick and easy to make. I did cut the peanut butter cups into quarters and chilled them before removing from the liners. Thanks for the suggestions. One is pretty filling. I may add a decorative garnish to the top."
