Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cheesecake Cups
Sometimes simple is best and what's more simple than peanut butter and milk chocolate? These cups makes the perfect little treat pairing the traditional combo, all while being gluten free! What's better than that?
What You'll Need:
1 cup of heavy cream
1 - 8 ounce package of cream cheese, softened
1 cup of peanut butter
1 cup of super fine sugar
6 ounces of milk chocolate chips
1/4 cup of heavy cream
In the bowl of your mixer whip heavy cream on medium to high until whipped cream forms and then scrape out into another bowl.
In the bowl of your mixer (no need to wash it or anything) cream together creamed cheese and peanut butter until smooth. Slowly add sugar. (Note: It might seem a bit grainy at first, but it will come together.) Once the sugar is mixed in add whipped cream back to the bowl and mix until smooth.
Once peanut butter mixture is mixed pipe or spoon into a glass or bowl:
Chill covered for at least 3 hours.
Once cheesecake cups are chilled melt your milk chocolate chips with heavy cream over low heat until smooth. Then drizzle or scoop on to the top of your cups:
Then top with a little whipped cream and another drizzle of chocolate:
And then serve!
Makes 4 servings.
Notes: These are really rich so a little goes a long way. You can store leftovers in the fridge. You could use chocolates other than milk chocolate if you preferred, but there is something about the milk chocolate/peanut butter combo that just can't be beat!

Looks wonderful & I know it tastes even better than it looks because I loved the PB mousse from the bars!
