Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Cheesecake Recipe

This Nutter Butter Peanut Butter Cheesecake is evidence that even missteps can turn out totally heavenly and excellent. Yes, you read that right. This formula came about absolutely unintentionally.

I was really making something different and wasn’t giving close consideration to the formula causing some fixing botches. Not having any desire to squander fixings and toss out my slip-up I got innovative and this was the outcome.

How beautiful is this prepared nutty spread cheesecake!?! It is a rich soften in your mouth nutty spread cheesecake with a nutter margarine outside layer, sprinkled with nutty spread ganache and bested with nutter spread parts! You must attempt it!!!
