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.

Peanut Butter Banana Pudding with whipped cream and peanut butter drizzle with cookies on a wooden top with white background

No, your mind is not playing tricks on you. You really are staring at a glass filled with layers of JUSTIN’S® Classic Peanut Butter, vanilla wafer cookies, bananas, and pudding, topped with coconut whipped cream. This recipe is so easy to make I can do it with my eyes closed. Except, I have to use a plate for every time I miss the glass. The good news is, it still takes me less than 10 minutes to make.

Pretzel rhymes with wrestle, as in, “I’ll wrestle you for one of these Nut Butter Cup Dipped Pretzels”. That’s what my daughter said to me last time I made a batch of these. I’ve combined the saltiness of pretzels with the sweetness of my famous nut butter cups and voila! I present to you one of the greatest snacks ever invented.
