katrina, this was so good and rich. i really enjoyed it.very creamy,i will make it again. the only thing i changed was the semi-sweet chips,all i had had was milk chocolate,other than that that's all i changed.

Great cake! I modified it by just using 2 cups of peanut butter instead of chips (perhaps a little too much), and then used chocolate ganache instead of the drizzle. And I used gluten free chocolate cookie crumbs instead of graham craker crumbs. My first baked cheesecake though, and it turned out great! Thanks!

Perfect! First time baking a cheesecake and although I was disappointed that it came out cracked,I just covered it with a mixture of peanut butter and chocolate thick drizzles, and then cut big Reese's cups in half and stuck them on the sides. I forgot to take a picture of the whole cake before it began being eaten...but have a piece left that I will take a pic of and upload. Thank you for the recipe!!
