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.
Peanut Butter Glaze
- 3/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
- 4-5 tablespoons of heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Whisk the glaze ingredients together until they are smooth and pourable.
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips (I used semi sweet)
Heat the heavy cream and chocolate chips over low heat in a pan while continuously whisking until everything is melted and smooth. Allow to cool to room temperature before adding to the top of the cheesecake.
