Friday's Treat

Reese's Peanut Butter Cheesecake

"No Bake" 

Doesn't this look amazing?! It is full of yummy layers....cake, gnoche, cheesecake and of course Reese's Peanut Butter cups! 

This was so easy to make. Start with a layer of chocolate cake. Bake it as normal and then cut it into squares and press into pan to form a crust.  The actual recipe called for brownies but I think the cake is better because it is a little bit lighter.

Next, you make gnoche ( chocolate and heavy cream)....I love gnoche! 
I would put it on everything if I could:)

Then you combine them by pouring the gnoche on top of the cake layer.
Now, I didn't take pictures of the next step. I apparently was too focused on the gnoche and chocolate cake, can you blame me though? I mean, really.....gnoche and chocolate cake!!!

So, you mix cream cheese, peanut butter and sweetened condensed milk together until smooth. Then fold in whipped cream ( you must use heavy cream and whip it yourself....so worth it ). 

Then you get to add more layers!!! Chop up some Peanut Butter cups and sprinkle a few of those onto the gnoche. 

Pour about half of the cheesecake mix on top of that. Sprinkle with some more chocolate cake and peanut butter cups and then pour the rest of the cheesecake on top of that......we aren't done yet:) 
Add some more chopped peanut butter cups....

 Now if this were something I would be serving at home I would drizzle some more gnoche on top and as if that weren't enough I would probably drizzle some peanut butter sauce as well. Why not?! It's not like you are trying to be healthy if you are eating this:) You may as well go ALL OUT!!!  Hahaha....

After all that you let your husband pretend he is just going to stuff his face into the whole thing because he can't wait for you to cut it!! ( don't worry, I didn't let him get much closer) 

This side picture shows off all the layers

I told you this was amazing! and yummy!! If you are chocolate/peanut butter lover you must make this. It really is so simple to make...Here is the link for the actual recipe that I used. As you will be able to tell I adjusted it just a bit because, why follow a recipe exactly?

I hope you enjoy, let me know if you try it!
