Peanut Butter Cheesecake Crepes

Yes I did! If you want to call it by it's real name... Peanut Butter Chocolate Pretzel Cheesecake Crepes with White Chocolate and Pomegranate Creme drizzle...

Someone along with every NJ and NYC resident loves cheese cake and since I found my cheese cake recipe from waaaaaay back in my early twenties and decided some people in my life needed some 'sweet' love from this chef!

'Here is a no bake cheesecake batter; add peanut butter and pipe into crepes'

3 (8 oz.) cream cheese
1 can evaporated sweetened condensed milk
3 tbsp. lemon juice
1 (8 oz.) Whip Cream or Cool Whip

Beat at medium speed until smooth the first 3 ingredients. Fold in Cool Whip. Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight until set. Gently fold in 3 tablespoons room temp creamy peanut butter, and place in plastic bag and snip hole on tip to pipe into crepes.

'As Snoop would say...this is gonna fizzle on the drizzle people'...

Slowly heat white chocolate (high butter content) with a few drizzles of cream until liquid enough to drizzle over crepes. Smash chocolate covered pretzels for garnish along with dried pomegranate seeds. For POM whip cream just add a few lid fulls to whipped cream and plate.

Crepes can be a difficult task to master...batter and making them so thin...but they are similar to making pancakes and the dosai I make...once you do a few in the pan it all starts to together and getting the feel for the thickness you want...wipe pan with damp paper towel after each crepe, and keep heat low...
