Peanut butter and chocolate just seem to be two ingredients and flavors that just naturally go together, hand in had. So, if you and your family enjoy them together, try this recipe for Peanut Butter Oreo Cheesecake tonight (and eat it tomorrow). This is a classic recipe that will take some time to prepare, but like all good things, it is worth the time and effort as well as the wait for something this good.

There are three basic layers to this dessert. It begins with the chocolate Oreo cookie base, which, for this traditional cheese cake, is not pre-cooked. You just press the mixture in to the pan. Then you add the cream cheese mixture, which is made as two different parts. The recipe recommends that you not use natural peanut butter. That could be because the extra sugar in the peanut butter forms part of the recipe, and that is not usually present in natural peanut butters. A reduced fat cream cheese is also recommended for this recipe. This recipe also layers the peanut flavor with the chocolate Oreos to create an interesting taste complement and contrast with the middle layer. The recipe clearly explains this step, and it just adds more depth to the great taste of this cheese cake.

This cheese cake blends two flavors that just seem meant to be together, namely, peanuts and chocolate. It is a classic cheese cake, so it has to be cooked for some time and then left to sit in the over for hours until it cools. All of this means that this recipe takes some time and attention to get it right. It is well worth the effort to do so, since the end result will be really special. Enjoy this recipe soon; your family will appreciate the effort you have made on their behalf.
