“I know it's silly, but I don't feel as guilty eating this as I would eating cheesecake. This recipe is easy and quick to make and is always a big hit! I use light Cool Whip and cream cheese but if you want a richer taste, go with the regular.”

  1. Mix margarine, graham wafer crumbs, peanut butter and peanuts together.
  2. Press into a 9x13 inch pan.
  3. Beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth.
  4. Add peanut butter and eggs.
  5. Add vanilla and Cool Whip and mix until blended.
  6. Pour mixture over wafer crumbs and freeze for one hour.
  7. Sprinkle with peanuts and drizzle with chocolate syrup.
  8. Keep frozen and serve chilled. Place in fridge 30 minutes before serving.
  9. TIP: Before preparing crust, you can cut the cream cheese into 8 cubes and put in the bowl. Put in the sugar and let it sit while you prepare the crust. This allows the cream cheese to soften faster.
