Reviews forPeanut Butter Cheese Torte
"What can I substitite for the coffee?"
"If you like reese's peanut butter cups you will love this. It is easy to make and to save time I usually just buy 2 graham cracker crusts instead of making the crust but then you have to keep in mind to also make a little extra topping."
