Peanut Butter Cheesecake Tarts

These tarts are just about the easiest cheesecakes you will ever make with just a hint of peanut butter. Finish them off with a DOVE® Peanut Butter Egg for the perfect combination of peanut butter, cheesecake and chocolate.

  • 2 8- oz packages of cream cheese softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 vanilla wafer for each cheesecake
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • cupcake wrappers
  • 1 DOVE® Peanut Butter Egg for each cheesecake


  • Mix together the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and eggs together until very smooth.
  • Add a wafer to the bottom of each muffin tin with the flat side of the wafer down.
  • Spoon the filling over the wafers until each cupcake wrapper is two thirds full of filling.
  • This should take just about all of the filling you made.
  • Bake the tarts at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
  • It usually takes my oven on the longer side for these to be completely set.
  • Wait for the cheesecakes to cool completely and then top with a DOVE® Peanut Butter Egg for that extra pop of peanut butter.
  • I like to drizzle caramel over the top of the egg and the cheesecake but it isn’t necessary.
