Chocolate Peanut Butter Pecan Pie Cheesecake Bars Recipe @pinch

Who knew pecan pie, cheesecake, and a bit of peanut butter would create an amazing dessert? The bottom crust is crunchy and buttery. Chocolate and peanut butter chips add pops of flavor to the sweet and tangy cream cheese layer. On top is a sweet and nutty pecan pie. Topped with a cinnamon havespiced buttery crumble, this is a match made in heaven. It is a decadent treat for the holiday season. This happened when I couldn't decide what to bake for my husband's birthday. I made all of his favorites in one. Deliciousness from top to bottom!
