Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake | Sprinkles For Breakfast

I know everyone is entitled to their own opinions when it comes to food choices, but I whole heartedly believe chocolate and peanut butter is one of the best combinations of all times. It’s just a fact – and anyone who tells you differently is either lying to themselves, has a peanut allergy and has never really enjoyed the amazingness of this combo, or is just straight up misinformed.

When done correctly, the pairing of a decadent chocolate and a creamy peanut butter can really cure almost any bad day. And no one knows this better than the guys over at Reese’s. So I was super excited when they partnered with International Delight to make a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Creamer!

I’m sure it’s delicious in your coffee or whatever, but for me, the first thing that came to my mind was Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake. Typically, a good cheesecake is made with a sour cream/heavy cream base, and then you can add a variety of mix-ins to create different flavors. But when your creamer is already Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup flavored – you know it’s going to be next level.
