No-Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bars

No-Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake BarsYou’ll get bonus ponts if you have no-bake peanut butter cheesecake bars, pairing chocolate and peanut butter seem like the most obvious combination! Then add in a layer of cheesecake and it kinda becomes something people will be highly impressed with.

I say this because the few times I’ve made this slice and taken them to share with others, it has disappeared swiftly. So swiftly and with such joy delivered via full mouths and happy smiles over how good this slice is. No bake peanut butter anything is not often found so it’s not surprising that people are impressed when you reveal this.

In a surreal way because I’m not big on no-bake things, but every once in a while it’s good to try something you don’t often do. I say surreal in the sense of getting to walk past Buckingham Palace every morning or coming out of the Tube at Westminster, only to look up and see Big Ben standing across the black cabbed road; it can all seem kind of surreal to live here in London.

And when busy life takes hold it can also be extremely easy to forget where you are or what you can see just by deliberately getting lost. So on Friday night, my friend Pilar and I got deliberately lost after downing an Elvis shake with the ingredients being those he had consumed and peanut butter being a weakness of mine at The Breakfast Club before we walked the streets near Piccadilly Circus, through Chinatown and wherever else the narrow streets led us.

The beauty of living somewhere you didn’t grow up in is the ability to discover a new place to eat or a street with a great little vintage shop. And becoming friends with people who are equally not from here is another reason to deliberately get lost. Though moving somewhere you haven’t lived and barely visited before means you get lost more often than you’re used to and you’re exploring new places than you know what to do with.

Sometimes winging it in the kitchen results in a delightful surprise like this slice that I had people at work asking for the recipe after tasting this. This no-bake peanut butter cheesecake slice is definitely a moment of surprise as this turned out great the first time, though, as always, there is something to learn and ways to improve and so here, before you today lies a recipe that might surprise you as much as it did me in how easy, quick and tasty it is!

How to prepare No-Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bars

  • Make the base: Combine the crushed oreos, cocoa powder and melted butter until the mixture holds together and refrigerate.
  • Peanut butter + cream cheese: Combine all the filling ingredients until smooth and no white portions remain.
  • Smooth it out: Spoon the filling over the base and smooth out as much as you can.
  • Melt it: Melt the chocolate and stir the coconut oil through until smooth.
  • Pour and spread: Pour the melted chocolate over the peanut butter and spread out the thin layer until no uncovered portions remain.
  • Refrigerate: Place in the fridge until set.
  • Slice: Heat up your knife and slice to avoid any cracks.
  • Serve: Best served alongside a glass of milk and dig in!

Tips for the best No-Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bars

Adding more sugar: Due to the crushed cookie base lending enough sweetness, there is actually very little sugar added to these bars, but cheesecake is one of those dishes that shouldn’t be overly sweet anyhow, making it perfect in my opinion (I have quite a sweet tooth), however, if you lean more towards a sweeter filling you could definitely up the sugar.
