Before I start, I need to go pop one of these bad boys in my mouth!…

Oh yea…much better!

Mmmm, peanut butter and chocolate! Whoever came up with that, did the world a favor. Such a beautiful flavor combination and it’s even better in a form of a smooth cheesecake. These little bites will send you straight to dessert heaven! The best part is that you can easily make them at home.

**Hint to men: Yes, you can make these little pieces of chocolate/peanut butter goodness all by yourself and your special Valentine will be very appreciative! A million point will go to you for the effort and the taste! As much as chocolates cost on V-day, these homemade cheesecake bites also have a bonus perk on costing you around $10.

Let’s talk about Ghirardelli chocolate for a minute. I’m a sucker for their chocolate. I just love the taste of it, it’s nothing like any other ones out there. It’s it’s smooth,  silky and not too sweet. The same flavor goes for their baking chocolate goodies. Ghirardelli baking chips and bars are made with their famous 60% cacao chips, made with a proprietary blend of quality ingredients and provide premium options for all  the baking needs. I love that the fine grind created a smooth texture for easy melting and dipping. Their chocolate melts have a much thinner, smoother consistency, which is perfect for a flawless coverage.

Yield: About 15

{No Bake} Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Cheesecake Bites

Ingredients

  • 8 oz of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup of peanut butter (creamy)
  • 2 tbs sugar
  • 1/2 cup of Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup of Ghirardelli dark candy making & dipping wafers (melted)

Instructions

  1. In a bowl on an electric mixer (you can use a hand-held mixer as well), combine the cream cheese, peanut butter and sugar. Mix on medium to medium-high for about 2 minutes, until the consistently is lighter in color and lighter in texture.
  2. Chop and fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. Transfer the mixture into a bowl, cover and refrigerate for about an hour or two.
  4. Cover a large cutting board with a sheet of parchment paper. Scoop the cheesecake dough with a standard cookie scoop onto the parchment paper (make sure to leave some space in between).
  5. Pop them in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes to harden.
  6. Melt the chocolate melts according to the package instructions.
  7. Using a toothpick (or a fork) dip the cheesecake bites into chocolate, covering them completely (you can smooth over the cheesecake bites with your hands before dipping). Lay them back on the parchment paper. Give the chocolate a few minutes to harden.
  8. Store in the refrigerator!

    I know this is probably a REALLY dumb question so let me apologize in advance. Why can you not use chocolate chips for melting rather than the melting chips.

    • Hi Marilyn! Melting chips have a different consistency and they melt much easier and smoother than chocolate chips. Chocolate chips are also more finicky when it comes to melting, they tent to burn or harden easily if you overheat them.

  2. Oh my, these look so good! Peanut butter cheesecake in bite sized form has my name written all over it. Beautiful pictures, too! Working with frozen truffles is no easy feat. Looks delicious!

  3. These are wonderful looking! Thank you for linking up at Tasty Tuesdays! I am SO glad you joined the party! Your post has been pinned to my Recipes from Tasty Tuesday board. I can’t wait to see what you link up next week!
    Have a terrific weekend!

  4. Wow!! Do those ever look good. I don’t think I could stop at one. Those would have to be made when I had gazillions of people around so they could eat them first. Great Recipe! And as always, your photos are terrific!

  5. Yum!

  6. my heart is racing, Lyuba! I don’t just WANT these for my 50th birthday tomorrow… I NEED them! :D

  7. These look so delicious, Lyuba! I don’t think I would be able to stop eating these. :)

  8. I love your site and love your recipes. I hope you can help me….I have no problem printing the recipes but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the photo printed with the recipe!!!!! Call me computer illiterate but I am so frustrated over this little glitch. Thank you!

    • Hmmm, when I click the “print” button above (right corner) the recipe, the photo shows up for me. It’s small but it’s there. I wonder it there is a print setting you you have turned on? May be it’s the browser you use?
      I’m honestly not sure about that one.

    • Just “right click” with your mouse over any of the pictures (not the small one with recipe print out); select “copy” and then “paste” or “Paste Special” under your Edit icon…at least that’s how it’s done on my computer. If the picture is too large on your recipe, just click on the picture and small (4) tabs will appear around picture; grab one of the tabs at top or bottom and drag downward or upward and the picture will get smaller; same goes for the tabs on the sides. Just experiment and you will get the hang of it.

  9. These look heavenly; will make them soon. Also, a huge “Thank You” for the absolutely amazing Tiramisu Poke Cake Recipe! Don’t tell my wonderful Italian friends, but I like your recipe even more than the traditional lady fingers version of this dessert! You’re incredible, the recipes and photos you post are too good to resist, and the updates about your little man are priceless! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

  10. Oh my goodness. I want these. Found you through Painted Apron. I am adding the ingredients to my errand list for all the makings for my 13 yr old who has decided she wants to learn to make candy and other kinds of goodies. Looking forward to doing it with her! Come see me sometime at bushel and a pickle.com

  11. Yummm!! Those look amazing!

  12. Oh these look so good. I’d probably eat that whole plateful if I sat down and tried to only eat one!

  13. these look soooo good! I would eat so many, and so I pinned this to make :-)

  27. Poppable pieces of peanut butter cheesecake? Yea that’s dangerous.

  28. These look delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

  29. I cannot find vanilla paste here in Ireland and wonder if I could use Extract instead. What quantity would I use, please.

    • Hi Ursula! I assume you are talking about Blueberry muffins? You can use vanilla beans, one bean should be good!

  30. Found thes on Pinterest last week, yummy scrummy they did not last long, now I am making for a works morning tea. We decided they tasted like snickers bars so we are calling them snickers balls (just because I’m to lazy to say chocolate cover peanut butter cheesecake bites). Thanks for the recipe they are going to be a new favourite

  31. How many doed this batch make?
