Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Here is some food porn:











It's from that recipe I mentioned before. I had to make a few modifications. I couldn't find Butterfinger, so I got this stuff instead:



Which was in the peanut butter / nutella section, and recommends spreading on toast. It's come to this? Spreading pure caramel on toast for breakfast? But anyway it worked well in the cheesecake. I even made a few with a dulce de leche center:



I also used graham cracker crumble instead of vanilla wafers, because I like graham crackers. And also, mixing the leftover chocolate and cracker bits, it makes a delicious goo for later:



Modifications I'd make to the recipe if I were to do this again would be to bake the crust for less than 10 minutes (some of mine burned), only put a bit of chocolate on top or it overwhelms the cheese part of the cake, and if you like peanut butter, put more in. In baking and in life, there is always room for more peanut butter.

(Again, recipe is here)

At a time when my Doctor has threatened Diabetes medication and I'm trying to lose 20lbs for Disney (gotta look good at the water parks), I fucking hate you.

Sorry. I can pretend it was gross if you want.

By the way, I hate you for posting these pics when I'm sick and starving.

Zomgzies!!! This post is great justification for why people with nut allergies are completely useless.

I love dulce de leche. I eat it straight from the jar with a spoon. The cheesecake looks yummy, but for cheesecake I can only do plain, baked, and no topping (sometimes cherries)
