Chocolate-Peanut Butter Cheesecake with Chocolate Glaze

Recipe photo courtesy of Chris Court

This cheesecake is a fresh take on a familiar combination. It's not too sweet and has a voluptuous consistency. The glossy chocolate glaze goes on like satin.

    Decadent! I made a different crust but followed the cheesecake part exactly........great presentation! (2 cups graham crackers ground, 3/4 C. chocolate chips, 1/2 C. salted peanuts, 3 T. softened butter, put all ingredients in your food processor until done and press into 9" springform pan that has parchment sprayed underneath and on top of it. Refrigerate for 30 minutes and add cheesecake as directed in recipe)

    Click on the end of the recipe list for the filling, it says chocolate glaze, and the recipe for the glaze will pop up

    I made this for my husband, big fan of cheesecakes, and it was awesome!!! The ingredients were listed perfectly, and everything went out great! The combination of the peanut butter and the chocolate with the cheese and the crust was perfect! And the detail of the swirls gave this cake the perfect look!!!

    I made this for Easter dessert and loved it. Just the right combination of flavors. I made a gluten free crust with gluten free graham crackers in place of the chocolate crust. I will make this again for sure!

    I made this for my daughter in laws birthday party. One of the best cheesecakes I have ever made. Many requests for the recipe. I suggest making it a day ahead of time.... Will definitely make it again and again!

    Made this for my daughter's birthday. Delicious, creamy, and the layers of color are lovely. Be sure to allow plenty of time for the cheesecake to cool before serving. I was rushed and didn't allow sufficient time for thorough cooling. It was tasty, but chilling the leftovers overnight made a huge difference in the taste and texture. Definitely a keeper!
