Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Bars


We usually reserve desserts for Sundays around here and when given a choice, my husband chose these delicious bars. I love simple desserts like these that use convenience foods, but are out of the ordinary. A decadent combination of chocolate, cheesecake, and peanut butter cups! They were delicious! Bonus, you can make them a day ahead and refrigerate like I did. I would recommend bringing them to room temperature before serving.
Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Bars
Picky Palate
1 box devils food cake mix
1 egg
1 stick softened butter
8 oz softened cream cheese
1 egg
1/3 Cup sugar
10 regular size Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, cut into little pieces
1 Cup semi sweet chocolate chips4 Tablespoons heavy cream
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9×13 inch baking dish with tin foil. Spray with non stick cooking spray. Mix cake mix, egg and butter together then press into baking dish.
2. Mix cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Stir in egg until well combined then stir in peanut butter cups. Pour over cake layer and bake for 30-40 minutes or until cheesecake is cooked through (it only took 30 minutes in my oven). Remove and let cool completely.
3. Carefully lift bars out of dish using ends of foil. Melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals until melted through. Stir in heavy cream and stir until glossy smooth. Spread chocolate over cheesecake layer, cut into squares and serve.
