This is quite possible my most favorite dessert I have ever made. Layers of chocolate and peanut butter cheesecake, on top of a bed of Reese’s pb cups, in an oreo crust, topped with chocolate ganache.

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’s chocolate 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 Cheesecake is pretty darn good too.
