It is probably one of the world’s most favorite and loved desserts of all-time, wouldn’t you agree? And cheesecakes don’t get any better when topped with other sweets- like Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are a beautiful thing, and they’re the ultimate candy when it comes to Halloween.

Let’s face it- everyone knows that when it comes down to digging through your treats at the end of a fun night of trick or treating, there is one candy that people are on the look-out for. Reese’s peanut butter cups.

The steps:

  1. First things first, preheat your oven to 325 °F.
  2. Then, mix all the crust ingredients. Press them into the sides and bottom of a 9-inch springform pan or any size of your preference.
  3. Next, bake it for 10 minutes and let it cool.
  4. After that, lower your oven’s temperature down to 300 °F.
  5. Beat the cream cheese and the sugar until the mixture becomes fluffy.
  6. Then add flour, sour cream, vanilla, and the eggs (one at a time).
  7. Pour the mixture into the crust. Drop the pan gently to release the air bubbles inside.
  8. Bake it for an hour.
  9. You may then turn the oven off but leave the cake inside it with the door still closed for a span of 30 minutes.
  10. Finally, remove it from the oven and let it cool. Then put it into the fridge until it becomes cold.

Directions in making the frosting:

  1. Mix the butter and the peanut butter, beat it until the combination becomes fluffy.
  2. Then pour in the milk and powdered sugar. Whip it until the mixture becomes light.
  3. Lastly, put the frosting on the cold cheesecake (design it as desired). Then top it with as much Reese’s as you like.

Enjoy this sweet dessert at home. There is no limit to the amount of Reese’s that you can add to the recipe. After all, your taste buds will decide on just the right amount.

While indulging yourself with this Reese’s cheesecake is a beautiful thing, it is still best to control yourself with all the sugar intake, so you should probably try and force yourself to share it with the fam, though we know that will be painfully difficult to do.
