Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Okay there are a few food groups (yes food groups) that, if you’ve been reading for the last few months or so, you probably already know I love.

Chocolate, cherry, strawberry, raspberry (basically all berries,) almond hazelnut, orange, lemon and of course – peanut butter.

Now there is a lot you can do with peanut butter – biscuits, flapjacks and ice cream to name but a few, but today I wanted something just that but extra special.

You see New Year’s Eve is fast approaching and you may need an extra special dessert. If that is you then look no further…………………………..

A few years back a couple of friends and I, all madly into salsa dancing, decided that, before we went dancing the night away at our favourite club we would meet up and, just to store up energy you realise, have an all dessert (shocking I know!!!) bring and share at my place – I lived in London at the time and therefore closest to the venue.

We each bought a couple of dishes – we had way more food than we could possibly have consumed - although I’m pretty sure most of the eating took place when we arrived back from dancing.

It was amazing fun though and the perfect event for a peanut butter cheesecake – I don’t think we had one but I’m sure we should have! An absolutely luxury dessert and sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Happy New Year ’s Eve – hope the next year is a blast! :D
