Mini NO BAKE peanut butter cheesecakes

Where should I even start! These little suckers was EVERYTHING I wanted and more. Crisp oreo bottom, creamy, smooth peanut butter filling with a rich chocolate ganache on top!!!!!! Like can you go wrong?

As you all know Im not a huge fan of cheesecake, the baked kind, BUT these NO BAKE decadent cheesecakes are AMAZING! I couldve ate ALL of them and wanting more. I had to give them away to save myself some calories but I did hammer down 3 of them first πŸ˜‚.

You can use either oreos, what ever kind you like, probably not mint but you know what I am trying to say here! Or gramham crackers, or really any cookie you have on hand that would go well with peanut butter and chocolate. This recipe is SUPER simple and the only thing taking time is for it so set in the fridge. Great to have with your coffee, as dessert or for a birthday party! You can also make this as one big cheesecake using a springform or a round cake pan!
