Got this off a coupon for ricotta cheese! Enjoy! No, the way I listed the sugar is not an error:)

I made a few changes to it but everyone that ate it loved it. I bought some refrigerated peanut butter cookie dough to use as the crust, I spread it out in the pan and baked it for 20min then spread out some milk chocolate chips and let them melt on the cookie crust. I spread it out and made a thin layer of chocolate to create a barrier between the cookie and cheesecake. I also used 1/3 crunchy peanut butter and also added in 1pkg of dream whip.
