Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake

Cheesecake Recipes | 0 comments

This is so good – like a Peanut Butter Cup! This recipe makes a large dessert, and I have made it a few times to take to functions, where it has proved extremely popular. For a better “Peanut Butter Cup” effect, I have also made it with a chocolate wafer crumbs in crust in place of graham wafers.
