My holidays are a little different now - I don't bake much - mainly just for my husband - which adds a new challenge - as he's allergic to eggs. And actually - today's treats didn't even require an oven!
I've seen the ads for the new NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® DelightFulls™ Peanut Butter Filled Morsels and had to try them. They have other flavors (cherry, mint and caramel) but peanut butter is by far my favorite! There are all sorts of things to make with these - but my husband has been wanting to try something like cheesecake for a while now - so I got to work!
First, I crushed chocolate cookies in a ziploc bag. Then I added melted butter and made a crust. Then I mixed together peanut butter & cream cheese and folded in the DelightFulls™ morsels. I spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the crust and done-zo!
These Cheesecake Bites are delicious! I really like the DelightFulls™ morsels - they're a little bigger than regular chocolate chips and so tasty! I might have eaten the rest of the bag as a snack while I was making dessert. ;-)
