Cheesecake Balls






When it comes to cheesecake, I don't discriminate.  I love them all.  But put them into a bite size truffle ball and I'm smitten.  I made these on Saturday to bring to Whitney's wine and cheese party and I'm thankful I didn't eat them all before I left the house-they were that good.  I used this recipe from Brown Eyed Baker with a few modifications.  I made the cheesecakes in a cupcake/muffin tin so they baked faster and used this recipe for cheesecake (minus the crust).  Then I melted peanut butter chips, put them in a Ziploc bag, cut the end, and added hints of peanut butter to the top of each cheesecake ball.  They were a little messy to make, but completely worth it for the end result.
