Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Dip

Pinterest Challenge



Welcome to the February Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop! The purpose of this hop is to motivate us to not just hoard pins, but to make it happen! 
I was looking to make something I could serve at a party such as a viewing party for The Final Four! I went searching for dessert dips, and after drooling for a few minutes over all the fabulous recipes, I came upon a post from Amanda, blogger and owner of The Chunky Chef. Her Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Dip was exactly what I was looking for! Amanda's recipe was so easy to follow and I loved it. Doesn't it look fantastic!?

I made a few simple changes to the recipe. I added salt because I wanted to tone down the sweetness just a bit, and I added chopped peanuts, because I knew my guests would love the peanut bite in this dip, and they fit right in to the recipe with the peanut butter and chocolate!  I also changed the peanut butter cups to the mini size. I will definitely make this dip again and again.

1 cup mini Peanut Butter Cups, cut into quarters




Place cream cheese and butter in a bowl. Use a mixer to blend together. Add brown sugar, peanut butter, vanilla and salt.

Mix until smooth and creamy.
Chop peanuts.
Cut peanut butter cups into quarters. Mix peanuts and peanut butter cups into mix. 
Serve dip with chocolate graham crackers, 'nilla wafers, or even apple slices!
Such a great dip recipe!  Thank you Amanda for a fun, tasty, and easy to make recipe! Plus it can be made ahead of time for party planning ease!

  5. This sounds so good. I like the changes you made by adding the peanuts and a little salt. Something tells me I would be eating it up before I could serve it.
