There’s nothing I love more than the combination of dark chocolate, peanut butter, and creamy cheesecake. I made it my mission to create a dairy-free version of my favorite dessert to make sure that everyone can enjoy a chocolaty, peanut-buttery slice of cheesecake. It took some time – and roughly 1,000 dirty dishes – but I succeeded! Now I’m happy to share my recipe for Peanut Butter Chocolate Cashew Cheesecake with you.
