Peanut butter lovers unite! These peanut butter brownie cheesecake parfaits will propel you into the yummiest sugar coma you’ve ever experienced!!!
Layers of brownie, peanut butter cheesecake, and cookie crumbs are topped with whipped cream and bits of Reese’s peanut butter cups… trust me, you’ll be licking the cup clean!
I made these Peanut Butter Brownie Cheesecake Parfaits a little bigger than usual (mainly for the photographs, haha) but they make great mini desserts – since a little peanut butter ‘richness’ goes a long way in my book.
After my husband devoured one, he said I should also make a batch using peanut butter cup ice cream instead of cheesecake. Since he’s more of an ice cream lover, whereas I’m more of a cheesecake lover. Don’t tell him this… but I think his idea would be pretty tasty too. Perhaps add a layer of hot fudge. Oh my!
If you want a peanut butter fix, a great mini dessert to take to your next party, or simply a dessert ‘just because’ make my tasty peanut butter brownie cheesecake parfaits! They are peanut buttery good.
