Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake has arrived!!!  The best thing about the basic cheesecake recipe is how great it is for adapting and creating new flavors.  This peanut butter cup cheesecake starts with yesterday’s recipe but adds in chocolate and peanut butter flavors making it taste like a Reese’s peanut butter cup, but sooo much better!

Follow recipe for “Not so basic” Basic cheesecake but add in one cup of chocolate chips (I used semi sweet) before pouring the batter into the springform pan.  After baking, make sure the cheesecake is completely cooled before decorating.

Whisk the glaze ingredients together until they are smooth and pourable.

Chocolate Ganache
