Tips forpeanut butter cheesecake bars:

I use a small food processor to make the crust. If you don’t have one, I can’t recommend it enough because it’s such a time saver in the kitchen.

If you don’t have one yet, you can use a ziplock bag and a rolling pin to crush the graham crackers.

Also, a good set of spatulas. I use the silicone ones and they are perfect for getting every last drop of cheesecake from the bowl.

Little things like this make cooking easier and you can spend more time with your family!

Everyone will love these peanut butter cheesecake bites!
