Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Mini cheesecakes are a fun and fabulous play on both cheesecake and peanut butter cups. It blends the splendiferous flavors of chocolate, peanut butter and cream cheese. That makes for a filling dessert or late afternoon snack your family will ask for again and again. And it's so easy to make you'll be glad to make it for them.

This recipe takes advantage of pre-packaged products so you can put together this dish in a few minutes. Older children can help with microwaving the chips that get drizzled and swizzled over top of the cream cheese cake. The recipe's creator, Trish, has a great sense of humor as she writes out the steps for the cheesecakes, reminding the reader to be sure to take out 14 Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, 12 for the cheesecakes and 2 as a quick snack. These kinds of human and funny comments make me return to her site just to read through what she has to say each time.

Reese's Peanut Butter Cups originated in the USA in 1928 in the basement of Harry Bernett Reese's home. He was a dairy farmer who left the fields to pursue his candy dream. Nearly 100 years later, his company, now a subsidiary of Hershey's the chocolate Reese always used for his peanut butter cups, is valued at more than $1 billion dollars. Reese is no longer with us, of course, but his six sons and then their sons, have carried on the peanut butter chocolate making empire.

You can have a little piece of that empire when you make these very special individual serving peanut butter cheesecakes. The creaminess of the treat is doubled between the cream cheese and the peanut butter and your entire family will just love the smooth and velvety finish.

This dessert or snack is pretty kid friendly. Little helpers can unwrap packages of peanut cups just remember to have a few extra to open as a reward! Kids can also place the mini cups in to the muffin tins and even possibly swirl the cream cheese mixture around on top of the peanut cups to ensure an even distribution. Once the cakes are cooked, family members can also help to swirl the peanut and chocolate chips on top.
