No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake

READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by manushag

Great recipe for summer party. Make ahead in a 13 x 9 cake pan and chill. Can also substitute Splenda and sugar free Cool Whip and pudding mix. I use a little less when substituting Splenda for sugar. I have also made this recipe gluten free/dairy free for my family, and it is still quite delicious! Substitute gluten free/dairy free graham crackers in the crust and vegan soy based cream cheese, butter and cool whip, and make my homemade chocolate pudding with almond milk.

I made this for company this weekend and It went over really great. In a bid to use up some Oreo Bar wafers I used oreos crumbs for the base (and skipped the cocoa) and added 1 Tbsp of peanut butter to the melted butter. Becauce this is something I would like to make at the cottage, I used dream whip instead of coolwhip (dream whip keeps forever and I always have a package on hand up there). Definetely going in the cottage cookbook.
