Oscar Night Cheesecake Bites

So simple. So delicious. The easiest way to quickly answer almost any dessert craving.

After missing the desserts at Tico on Tuesday, I had a nagging craving for peanut butter and chocolate. Add that to a random cheesecake craving and the inability to leave the house, and you have one hungry, bored, brainstorming blogger.

I don’t even remember where I got the recipe, but last year at one point I made Oreo cheesecake bites, simply by mixing cream cheese and crushed Oreos in the blender. May sound gross to some, but I am a cream cheese fiend, and it certainly did the trick for me.

Enter the peanut butter chocolate cheesecake bite.

cream cheese

Start with one package of cream cheese, left out at room temperature until really softened.

peanut butter

Grab a few spoonfuls of peanut butter.

And as many chocolate chips as you desire.

And mash it all together in a bowl or mixer. Believe it or not, in my current flu-induced state mixing this made me tired.

Once the ingredients are blended to your liking, give it a few tastes to make sure there is enough of everything. This recipe is so easy because it is totally up to your palate to decide.

Refrigerate the mixture for at least an hour so that it is nice and firm, and then start scooping. I used the measuring spoon from the Foodbuzz swag bag. It made a neat little ball that was easily popped out. You could also use a small ice cream scoop or melon baller or even just your hands.

After I was done, I thought these little cheesecake bites might look better if I rolled them in the chocolate chips, rather than mixing them in. But, we were the only ones eating them and they were good enough for us.

These cheesecake bites are not super-sweet, but if you preferred them sweeter I am sure a little confectioner’s sugar would do the trick. I am also thinking these would be great with Nutella instead of peanut butter, rolled in cocoa powder instead of chocolate chips. The possibilities are endless!

Are you watching the Oscars? Are you an awards show person? I haven’t seen any of the movies, but I do enjoy red carpet fashion! Smile

    Anything cheesecake like is a ok in my book. This sounds delicious, as does the nutella variation.

    You and I had such similar cravings last week. I made a chocolate-peanut butter dessert too! I will be watching the Oscars, but like you I probably haven’t seen many of the movies.
