No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake On A Pretzel Crust

This no bake cheesecake is galvanized by embonpoint mate frozen dessert, however I didn’t wish to simply decision it embonpoint mate Cheesecake just in case there area unit people that don’t have any plan what that’s. primarily it’s the foremost unimaginable combination of chocolate, spread, peanuts and pretzels.

Basically, all the nice things.

So instead we’ve a No Bake Chocolate spread Cheesecake with cracker Crust and I’m not attending to apologize for a nine word instruction title as a result of I create the principles here.

I know you recognize i like a no bake cheesecake (this No Bake Lemon Cheesecake could be a favorite, and this No Bake Cookie Dough Cheesecake and No Bake Brownie Batter Cheesecake area unit reader favorites!). This one is correct there at the highest.

à strànge thing hàppened às I grew older ànd àlmost àdult-like — I’ve been àble to hàndle less sweetness in my desserts. I just need thàt something sàlty or citrusy or something to bàlànce out àll the sugàr to reàlly enjoy it. Thàt’s where our pretzel crust comes in.

It àdds the most incredible contràst to àll of the chocolàte ànd peànut butter — you could àlwàys use à no bàke Oreo crust (like from this cheesecàke) or gràhàm cràckers (from this cheesecàke) if you need to, but I highly recommend giving it à try!
