    How much is a stick of butter in your peanut butter cup cheesecake bars? 1 cup? I bought a stick of butter and used the whole bar and it’s definitely way too much. Instead of being like a crust, it looks more like soup.

    I was at the store and they didn’t have ANY cream cheese so I got cream cheese filling , the question being can I substitute the filling for the cream cheese in the peanut butter cheese cake over pb cups recipes

    Someone has taken your photos from this page and is posting in groups on facebook claiming it is their own. I thought you would like to know. They are also claiming this is their own recipe.

    I’ve got this cheesecake in the oven right now. My first time for trying get this recipe. Too bad I can’t eat any since chocolate triggers migraines. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Add just a tiny splash of whipping cream and it will be a little easier to spread also I added a touch more peanut butter than it called for
