Cheesecake is one of my all-time favorite desserts. In fact, when I was a kid, I would often ask my mom to make cheesecake or black forest cake for a birthday cake. Those were my two top choices every time. This easy, no-bake Peeps Cheesecake Cups recipe is a quick cheesecake treat for Easter or any holiday you can buy Peeps marshmallow treats for.
