Cheesecake with peanut butter and chocolate

Do you know these little chocolate bars - filled with crunchy peanuts, tender caramel and a secret candy cream? Almost as tasty is our Peanut Butter Cheesecake - only better.

Our favorite cake treats: a New York cheesecake. In combination with chocolate, peanuts and caramel - a pleasure. The great thing is that only the bottom of our Peanut Butter Cheesecakes is baked. The filling turns into a creamy delicacy in the fridge. Especially in summer - a dream!

Peanut butter with jam and honey. Or on banana and apple carving - either you love it or hate it, the peanut butter. We too are not satisfied with the little things and look forward to a nutty chocolate bar in large format - a Peanut Butter Cheesecake with chocolate.
