~Reese’s Bottom Cheesecake!

I’m not really a lover of surprises, unless of course it’s a food surprise!  And especially when that food surprise involves chocolate in unexpected places, well..not just chocolate, but REESE’S!

How much more awesome could Cheesecake possibly get?  This dream has a crust made of an entire Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup On. The. Bottom?!  Sooo, not much I tell ya! :)

Creamy Cheesecake, topped with a dusting of nutty Graham Cracker Crumbs & Sweet Chocolate Chips, all resting on top of a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Crust!  ~Simply Divine!  :)

What you’ll need:

1 Box of JELLO instant NO-Bake Cheesecake Mix (Feel free to make your own no-bake Cheesecake)

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups (one per each Cheesecake)

1 Cup of Mini Chocolate Chips..for sprinkling on top.

Approx. 1 Cup of Graham Cracker Crumbs (either store bought, or you can crush your own..or use the enclosed bag of crumbs from the boxed No-Bake Cheesecake Mix)…for sprinkling on top.

Paper Cupcake Liners

A Cupcake pan

Directions:

Mix up the no-bake Cheesecake according to the box directions..or make your own fave recipe…

Unwrap the Reese’s and REMEMBER TO REMOVE THE BOTTOM PAPER!

Drop one Peanut Butter Cup down into each paper liner and pour the Cheesecake Mix onto it…

Into the fridge to chill for at least one hour!

Sprinkle them with the Graham Cracker Crumbs and/or Chocolate Chips!

Serve those sweet surprise bottom Cheesecakes up…

Take a bite and be amazed!  ~Enjoy!  :)

  3. I cannot wait to make this for Christmas Eve! Silly question, do you put toppings on before you refridgerate or when you’re ready to serve?

    Reply
    • Before..that way they can set up! :) No such thing as a silly question! ;)

      Reply
      • Oops, just in case there is confusion, by “toppings” in this question I thought you meant the no-bake cheesecake topping?! If you meant the crumb topping, that would be as the directions state: after the cheesecake has been chilling on the Reese’s for at least an hour in the frige..then top away! :)

  4. How many Reese cups did you need?? I am so making these tomorrow!

    Reply
    • It’s one cup per each one! So just fill your cupcake tin with as many as you’d like! :)

  5. What topping is mixed with the mini chocolate chips to place on top of the cheesecake mix? Is it the graham cracker bottom crumbled up?

    Reply
  6. What’s that other crumbly stuff that you put on the top besides mini-chocolate chips?

    Reply
  7. How many graham crackers do you crush for the topping? Do you just mix them with the 1 cup of chocolate chips and sprinkle it on top?

    Reply
  8. How do you make the topping? They look so beautiful and delicious..

  11. This is genius! I’m very sad to have developed an allergy to peanut butter.
    I’ll make it for my kids.

    Reply
    • DK: my son is allergic to peanuts as well. There is a product out there called Suncups. They are made with Sunbutter and are exactly like Reese’s peanut butter cups. They taste delicious and you would never know its not peanut butter. The Sunbutter is made from sunflower seeds. You can order Suncups (and also Sunbutter in a jar that can be used in place of peanut butter) from http://www.peanutfreeplanet.com. I have been ordering off their website for years and you will find hundreds of products on there that you probably thought you had to give up because of your allergy. Hope that helps.

      • I also have a food allergy…it not to peanuts or peanut butter but to the preservatives in it..so I use Natural Jif or Skippy or Peter Pan…and I have an epi pen because I never know which preservative will kill me, there are so many in foods!

        Reply
  12. For those who are going to make this, don’t bother to buy graham crackers as the no-bake cheesecake already has a bag of broken up graham cracker crumbs that come in the box. Otherwise, a genius recipe! So simple and delicious.

    Reply
  13. Do you put the graham cracker crumbs & choc. chips on AFTER they’ve been in the fridge an hour?? Or before??

    Reply
    • After! :)

      Reply
      • In my original answer above I misunderstood and thought they were reffering to the Cheesecake topping. They meant the crumb topping and that will go on as the directions state: after the no-bake cheesecake has set up for at least an hour in the fridge…sorry for the confusion! :)

        Reply
  14. How many did the above quantity make? Did you use a 12 or 24 count muffin pan?

    Reply
    • I used 12. :)

      Reply
  15. Have you ever done the little mini cups with little Reece’s . Thought it would be good for a shower.

    • I haven’t, but that sounds so cute!!

  16. Boy are my threes sons and threes grandsons going to love these! Thank you!

  17. Can you use the premade cheesecake filling you can buy in the refrigerated section?

    Reply
    • Yes..even better! :)

      Reply
  18. Can these be frozen?

    Reply
    • Hmmm..not sure on that?!

      Reply
  19. Guess I’ll just have to try freezing them. Will let you know how it works out. Would be nice to have them in the freezer for those times when you’re just dying for something sweet.

    Reply
    • Regular Cheesecake freezes perfectly, so I’m thinking it should be fine..but please let me know (The PB Cup may get a little crackly, but that wouldn’t stop me..lol)! :)

      Reply
  20. How much cheesecake should I pour over the Reese’s? Do I fill the remainder of the cupcake liner? or just do a dollop?

    Reply
    • Just as high as you’d like it to go! :) ~YUM!

      Reply
  21. I think this could have been really good, but the Jello no ake cheesecake was yek! I will have to find a new recipe for no bake cheesecake. My family loves cheesecake and Reese’s and they didn’t like this. I hated that I wasted 12 Reese’s pb cups.

    Reply
    • So sorry you had a bad experience with the JELLO no-bake! But definitely try another no bake version that might be a better option for you! :)

      Reply
    • Jodi, try this no bake cheesecake recipe. It’s super yummy! Should work for the reese’s dessert. 1 can of sweetened condensed milk

      1 8 ounce tub of cool whip

      1/3 cup of lemon or lime juice

      1 8 ounce package of cream cheese.

      Most important part of this recipe, is to leave the cream cheese out for a couple hours at room temperature. The cream cheese will become soft and smooth. The importance of this is to create a smooth texture. Not doing so, will create horrible lumps of cream cheese that will ruin the flavor of this pie.

      After your cream cheese is softened enough, I like to see if it will spread easily with a plastic spatula. In a mixing bowl, mix all before mentioned ingredients. Please note: the lemon/lime juice must come last. The reaction of the citrus juice will start to harden your mixture almost immediately.

      On the low speed of you hand mixer, blend well. Around 2 minutes of so is plenty, just make sure all ingredients are incorporated. Immediately pour mixture into a waiting graham crust or for those of us that can’t have the gluten, I opt for muffin cups. Refrigerate for an hour to and hour and a half and viola.

      • Has anyone tried this with the Reese’s? I’m afraid the Jello No-bake will not be flavorful enough compared to the reeses cup. Ima making them for work.

        Reply
      • I tried this version of the no-bake cheesecake, since I was afraid that my family wouldn’t be able to eat the jello-brand (allergies). While it tasted great, it didn’t seem to set up as much as i would have liked. We even put them into the freezer for a while, to see if that would make a difference, and it didn’t. Overall, the cheesecakes were a hit, but some chose to eat them with a spoon instead of their fingers.:)

        Reply
  22. Do you think a baked version would hold up well? I love cheese cake, but trashy don’t find the no-bake versions to be as satisfying.

    Reply
    • The Reeses would melt..but you could experiment with different versions of no bake cheesecake until you find one that you like. :)

      Reply
    • I have done this with cheese cakes that you bake and it works great. But you need to use the foil liners or it soaks up all the oils from the chocolate.

      Reply
  23. Do these need to stay cool? We are having an indoor bake sale and thought it may be nice.

    Reply
    • Keep them cold until you’re ready to put them out and they should be fine for quite a while! :)

      Reply
  24. I wanted to love these….but didn’t. The “nobake” cheesecake is so mild…and the Reese Cup completely overpowered the taste.

    Reply
    • Aww..so sorry to hear that! There are a few different no-bake recipes out there you could try! :)

      Reply
  25. I don’t like the jello brand no bake cheesecake either…. so this is the one i use:

    One 8-ounce (227 grams) cream cheese, at room temperature

    1/4 cup (50 grams) granulated white sugar

    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract ( or you can use lemon juice depending on what type of cheesecake you make)

    1 cup (240 ml) heavy whipping cream

    Whip it all up together and it is yummy…… I will be making these Reese Bottom Cheesecakes with the above recipe for cheesecake,,,, can’t wait!!

  26. Amy you answered this question twice with 2 different answers. Before or after? Also, how long can they be refrigerated before I need them?

    Reply
    • Sorry Lori..now I’m confused..what question did I answer twice? I’ll try to clear it up! :)

      Reply
  27. Amy, I think she’s referring to the question about when to put on the toppings,before or after chilling in fridge. In Dec you said before and in Feb you said after. But no worries…I believe this dessert won’t care…delicious either way!

    Reply
    • In December I thought the question was reffering to the Cheesecake topping, In Feb. I thought they meant the crumb topping..so two different times there! The Cheesecake Topping will go on BEFORE being chilled, and the crumb topping goes on as the directions state: AFTER the Cheesecake has been chilling in the fridge (on the Reese’s) for at least one hour…! So sorry for all the confusion~~ :)

  28. This is a fun idea. I am going to make these for my treat day at work. I think that I may buy some PB2 and try a lil in some of the cheesecake. Pump up the peanut butter taste!

    Reply
  29. After the cheesecakes are chilled and the topping on, can you leave at room temperature? And how long?

  33. I made these for a party tonight and they are terrific! Set up really quickly and a snap to put together for a quick party dessert! So excited for everyone to try them!

    Reply
  34. Made the cheesecake part according to the directions on the box (30 seconds on low, 3 minutes on medium). Topping came out very thick, not at all pourable. Left in the fridge for several hours and the filling did not seem to set up, still very gooey… good, but gooey.

    What did I do?????

  35. I’m making to night for church .How ever I would like to know would the cherry pie filling would work if you use a little bit on each?

  37. Love this. I added a little strawberry jam on top too. My husband loves PB and J so I gave it a try.. Hope he likes.

    Reply
  38. Is this a freezer friendly recipe?

    Reply
    • I didn’t freeze it, but I think it should freeze the same as a regular cheesecake. :)

      Reply
  39. Has anyone tried using red food coloring to make the homemade cheesecake pink? I’m thinking of making these, but the mini ones, using pink cheesecake topping and pink sprinkles. Thoughts? :)

    • YUMMY! did you try this? i have a friends baby shower to attend this weekend and it would be so neat if i could dye these blue!

      Reply
  40. I wonder how it would be and taste with cheesecake jello pudding hummm sound and could get interesting what do you think

    Reply
  41. How many cupcakes does one box of no bake filling make? If I need to make 12+ servings do I need one or two boxes?

    Reply
  42. Made these last night! They were delicious, but I mixed mine with a mixer for too long, as they were very fluffy and had a “whipped” consistency as opposed to your creamier looking filling. So just a warning to everyone: it’ll be runny at first but it’ll thicken up, just make sure not to over-mix the milk and filling!

    Reply
  43. Can these be made the day before and topping put on 2 hours before served?

    Reply
    • YES~ as long as the Cheesecake can set up in those 2 hours to your liking. :)

      Reply
  44. if i want to make 24 of these, should i buy 2 packs of the no bake stuff? or will one be enough?

    Reply
  45. How many does one box make?

    • One box makes 12 :)

  48. how many cupcakes did you get from one box? i want to make these for my family and my inlaws just trying to find out how many boxes i need to get.

    Reply
    • Roughly 9 I believe! :) Hope you enjoy them!

      Reply
      • 9? But in the above answers you said 12?

        Reply
        • If I’m correct, 12 was my answer to the question of the pan size I used…9 was my answer to how many I made. :). However…you might be able to get more than 9 out of it. Hope that helps.

          Reply
  49. Amy, I made these for a work party and everyone loved them. However my jello brand cheesecake filling did not ever get very hard. What do you think went wrong? I noticed another person also had this happen and thought over mixing caused the problem. I used my kitchen aide mixer.Any ideas? I will make them again.

    Reply
    • I’m not sure…the box instructions should work. I’m thinking maybe there’s an inconsistency within the product? Glad you still enjoyed them..let me know how take 2 goes. :)

  50. I made these tonight, and I didn’t really care for them. They were just kind of “meh” and kind of messy to eat but they get points for being super easy and quick to make.
