This Reese’s Peanut Butter No-Bake Cheesecake recipe is the marriage of two of my very favorite sweets, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and cheesecake. Being a no-bake dessert it is both perfect for the hot days of summer, as well as a dessert to make with the kids.
While the hands-on time to make this is pretty minimal, do plan ahead to give this plenty of time to chill before serving. A half hour of chilling during prep, and four hours after. This is pretty typical of cheesecakes of all kinds though. The wait is well worth it.
