Vegan Salted Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake

Vegan Salted Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake

This recipe from Nicolette Papile, @BasilAndBiceps, has "multiple layers of sweet decadence". The cheesecake bites will show you how easy it is to create high quality, super delicious plant-based treats for yourself!

For the base, she used mashed up Chocolate Chia cookies, then smooth chocolate cheesecake, topped with peanut butter fudge, hard chocolate, and salted candied peanuts. This no-bake recipe has rich flavor combinations and a variety of textures. They're amazing for the summertime since you don't need to turn on your oven! The Chocolate Chia cookie crust, nuts, and peanut butter are great sources of protein so you can enjoy sweets while meeting your daily dietary needs.
