I don't care for chocolate and it's almost impossible to find a recipe for PB cheesecake that doesn't call for chocolate. Was so glad to find this one and BOY was it awesome! I also omitted the marshmallows and it was fine without them. The saltiness of the peanuts is a fabulous combo with the sweetness of the cheesecake. 5 stars all the way!!!
I had high hopes for this recipe, but I did not care for it that much. The cheesecake was too dense for my liking and I don't think the marshmallow topping was needed.
Yum!! I love peanut butter and this cheesecake is simply divine. I left out the marshmallows because my husband does not like them but I do not think the omission detracts from the cheesecake at all. We will definitely be having this again.
My friend made this for Easter and it was terrific !!!
This is the best thing I have put in my mouth in a LONG time.
