This weekend, I was still craving for that sinfully looking cheesecake. So, I looked up my favorite cheesecake recipe and added a bunch of chocolate and peanut butter, voila! Homemade chocolate pb cheesecake! Maybe it wasn't as good as Cheesecake Factory's, but it was sufficient to satisfy my craving :p Creamy, chocolatey, peanut buttery, and decadently rich... A little bit too rich actually :p I could feel my arteries clogging up, lol. Anw, pics are below as usual..
Basic baked cheesecake recipe can be found on my post "To bake or not to bake: Cheesecake dilemma". Just make the crust with Oreo cookies instead of graham cracker, fold Reese's pieces into the cheesecake batter, pour half of the batter into a 9" springform pan, top with a layer of smooth (or crunchy) peanut butter, pour the rest of the batter into the pan, and bake as directed. After the cheesecake is refrigerated overnight, make some chocolate ganache and peanut butter ganache, spread them on top of the cheesecake (or make decorative patterns with them like I did), and decorate the top with some Oreo halves and Reese's pieces. Lastly, grab a fork and enjoy ^_^
