Two things are for sure: 1) I love chocolate; 2) I love peanut butter. Okay, make that three sure things…because I love cheesecake, too! So it goes without saying that I couldn’t resist sharing this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Squares recipe for the #Chocotoberfest by Imperial Sugar blogger project. I’m joining an awesome group of chocolate-loving bloggers this week to share our favorite chocolate recipes and to give readers an opportunity to win a chocolate prize pack worth $350! What’s not to love about that?!
How to Make Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Squares
My Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Squares start with a chocolate crumb crust. Lining the pan with aluminum foil makes for easy removal and cutting into squares once the dessert is baked and completely cooled.
Divide the basic cheesecake batter and stir in melted chocolate chips and peanut butter chips to make the different flavor layers. Start with a layer of chocolate batter.
On top of this, add the layer of peanut butter batter and smooth carefully to the edges.
Add last, another layer of chocolate cheesecake batter. Are you drooling yet? Because I am! This cheesecake is smooth and creamy and very rich. I love the layer of peanut butter sandwiched in the middle of this dreamy chocolate, but if you prefer to go all in with the chocolate flavor, just add another cup of chocolate chips and leave out the peanut butter chips.

Either way, this is a luscious cheesecake that can be served up for a casual party (I baked a batch to share with friends at a recent football party). Don’t forget to check out the other awesome chocolate recipes this week and enter to win the chocolate prize giveaway! Enjoy!
