Behold, the glory of Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake. There may just be Reese’s PB cups in here. Mmmhmmm. You heard me. REESE’S PB CUPS IN THIS CHEESECAKE.

Cheesecake has been a long time favorite dessert of mine. When I was younger I always would get the cheesecake desserts at restaurant. As I’ve gotten older, it’s usually the chocolate desserts. But when there’schocolate cheesecake? No contest. I don’t care how much I’ve stuffed myself with appetizer bread and dinner. Gosh darn it I’m going to order and eat all of that chocolate cheesecake. Or this one.This Berry Cheesecakeis pretty darn good too.

  1. This is a BANGIN’ recipe. Some friends got together to celebrate two January birthdays and they requested a peanut butter chocolate cheesecake. There are a ton of recipes out there and this one works beautifully. It’s isn’t hard but takes planning (preferably two days; make it one night, let chill and finish with the ganache the next day). What a wonderful recipe. I guilded the lily and added more chopped peanut butter cups on top for a knockout presentation. Make cheesecake, make friends. Thanks!

  2. I am planning to make this for my boyfriend’s birthday next week. I have never attempted a cheesecake before and I do not have a spring form pan, what size do you recommend for this recipe? thanks:)

    • Hi Dixie, I have not! You can definitely try it. If you were to freeze it, I would suggest putting plastic wrap touching the cheesecake so it doesn’t get any sort of film. Let me know if it works.

    • Hi! I have to say I have never made cheesecake without sour cream before…so I can’t say how it would turn out! You could try replacing the sour cream with yogurt, or heavy cream possibly. Sorry I don’t have a better answer for you!

        • Hi Donna! I’m sure it would cook fine in a muffin tin, but you would not want to cook it nearly as long. If you find another recipe for cheesecake in a muffin tin, you can probably use that cooking time. But my concern is getting the cheesecake out of the muffin tin! I don’t know if they would come out very easily because cheesecake is so soft…but let me know!!

  3. Can you make this recipe using less sugar? 1 cup sugar sounds too sweet for me, given the chocolate chips in the ganache, the cookie crumb crust, and the Reese’s PB cups! Thanks:)

    • Hey Emily, you can definitely try it! I would think it would work out just fine, but I have never tried it myself. Maybe you can cut the sugar in half to start and see how it is? Let me know if you try it that way and how it turns out!

    • That is a GREAT question! I definitely need to go edit that in the recipe. After you take the cheesecake out of the oven, chill it for about an hour. Then carefully remove the springform pan and pour over the (room temperature) chocolate ganache. If you don’t want the ganache to run down the sides of the cheesecake, you can pour the ganache on while it is still in the pan and chill it again for about 30 minutes. Hopefully this makes sense, please let me know if you have any more questions! And thank you for bringing that to my attention
