MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 21, 2014

I had imagined the perfect recipe with my two favorite desserts, peanut butter and cheesecake..... but could never find a recipe that looked like it would be as good as my 'dream dessert'. This SURE was the perfect one! Easy to make, light, and full of those gorgeous peanut butter and cheesecakey flavours..... I'm in love!!
