No bake recipes are my favorite, especially when they consist of peanut butter cups and cheesecake! This no-bake peanut butter cup cheesecake recipe just so happens to consist of both, served and ready to eat in half pint mason jars. It’s so simple to make and can be made ahead of time, which is perfect for parties! Peanut butter lovers will love these mini cheesecakes and my husband deemed them as his most favorite dessert ever!
