So we put away all of our Christmas decorations this weekend. It feels good to finally have everything put away and now the holidays are officially done for another year.

However, the celebrations are not yet finished.

Today is my brother and cousin’s birthday and Friday is the hubs’ 30th birthday. I’m telling you – December and January are busy busy for us.

It’s hard to believe that the hub’s and I will both be 30. We met when we were 15 and started dating at 17, so we’ve basically known each other for half of our lives now. Crazy!

This No Bake Reese’s Peanut Butter Cheesecake – it’s also crazy. Crazy good. Peanut butter lovers – this one’s for you!

Cheesecakes have always been one of my favorite desserts and the last few months, I’ve loved them more and more. There are just so many things you can with them and so many flavors to try. Baked or no bake, I’m a fan.

I do love the ease of a no bake cheesecake though. There are those times that you just don’t want to fool with the oven, or worry about cracks, or take all that time to bake one. For those times, there’s cheesecakes like this one.

The base of the cheesecake is made up of – you guessed it – cream cheese. Mix that with some sugar, vanilla and LOTS of peanut butter!

You could stop right there, but why would you? Why, when you add some chopped Reese’s? Definitely throw some of those in there. It’s like having chocolate chips in your cookies, but better.

MY OTHER RECIPES

You’ll also add in some Cool Whip. It breaks up the cream cheese a bit and smooths out the texture of the cheesecake. You can use actual whipped cream as well – I’d recommend using about 1 cup of heavy whipping cream and 1/2 a cup of powdered sugar to replace the 8 oz of Cool Whip.

Pour that all into your crust – an Oreo crust, no less – and refrigerate that sucker until it’s nice and firm.

Then, if you’re in the mood to party, top it with more chopped Reese’s and chocolate sauce.

And I mean really, when aren’t you in the mood to party like that?
