Peanut, Peanut Butter! Reese’s!

I have been remiss in my duties!  I realized that I had not shared with you my report on this fantastic recipe my SIL Jeannie turned me on to:  Reese’s Peanut Butter Cheesecake.  It is so fantastically good, I didn’t even mess with the recipe very much!

I’m not going to do a recipe retype here – go to the page and give that woman all the credit.  You HAVE to make this.  I have made 3 of them in the last 2 weeks!

prep phaseA few pointers I will share…don’t over cook the brownie crust on the first bake.  It will get plenty of baking time during the filling phase.  Also, about half the amount of ganache drizzle is PLENTY.  This cheesecake has just the right amount of chocolate interspersed, between the chips and chopped up Reese’s (whoever invented Reese’s needs an award…), and the brownie crust.

base with chips prebakeIsn’t this thing just gorgeous?  I mean, even without topping, it’s one of the prettiest bakes I’ve seen.  No credit to me – its the peanut butter goodness that lends that nutty brown finish.  Beautiful!  I am already dreaming about a Snicker’s cheesecake…

finished no toppingTry this!  Have plenty of milk and coffee on hand!  Invite your friends and family, but only the ones you like because you won’t be able to get rid of them!

Enjoy!
