    I originally thought of my Instant Pot as a way to prepare quick and easy meals. While it does just that, I also experimented with it to make other things. Like dessert!

    Turns out cheesecake is the perfect thing to make in the Instant Pot. Let me tell you why.

    The number one probably people have when they make cheesecake is that the top cracks. To prevent cheesecake cracking, you bake it in a water bath, resulting in a moist, creamy texture.

    The Instant Pot is basically just that. I nice water bath that keeps the cheesecake deliciously moist. It is virtually impossible to over or undercook it.

    The first time I made an Instant Pot cheesecake, my guests literally said it was worthy of a fancy restaurant. The best cheesecake recipe ever!

    From there I’ve started to explore with other cheesecake flavors. Peanut butter and chocolate just seemed like a natural fit.

    A graham cracker crust starts the layers of deliciousness. Next comes a layer of chocolate chips on hot crust. Decadent peanut butter cheesecake comes next. And lastly, peanut butter and chocolate chips and chocolate syrup. Pure bliss.

    If you want to switch it up a little, you can use chocolate graham crackers or top your peanut butter cheesecake with coarsely chopped Reese Peanut Butter cups. Serve with a heaping scoop of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream to really take it over the top!

    Tools for making Peanut Butter Cheesecake:

    Stand Mixer– I lived for a long time without one. My life was changed when I finally bit the bullet and bought one. Just do it and thank yourself later.
