For the Crust:

2 cups chocolate cookie crumbs (about 20-24 cookies)


1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted

For the Peanut Butter Filling:

24 oz (680g) cream cheese, softened

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar


1 cup heavy whipping cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Chocolate Ganache:


1 cup heavy whipping cream

8 oz (225g) semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped


2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature


Step 1: Prepare the Crust


Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9-inch springform pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, mix the chocolate cookie crumbs and melted butter until well combined.

Press the mixture firmly into the bottom of the prepared pan to form an even crust.

Bake the crust in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let it cool completely.

Step 2: Make the Peanut Butter Filling


In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese and peanut butter together until smooth and creamy.

Add the granulated sugar and light brown sugar, and continue to beat until well combined.


Pour in the heavy whipping cream and vanilla extract, and beat on medium-high speed until the mixture is light and fluffy.

Pour the filling over the cooled crust, spreading it evenly with a spatula.

Step 3: Chill the Cheesecake


Cover the cheesecake with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or overnight, until firm.

Step 4: Prepare the Chocolate Ganache


In a small saucepan, heat the heavy whipping cream over medium heat until it begins to simmer.

Remove from heat and pour the hot cream over the chopped semi-sweet chocolate in a heatproof bowl.

Let it sit for 2-3 minutes to melt the chocolate, then add the room temperature butter and stir until smooth and glossy.

Step 5: Assemble the Cheesecake


Remove the chilled cheesecake from the refrigerator and carefully remove it from the springform pan.

Pour the chocolate ganache over the top of the cheesecake, spreading it evenly to cover the surface.

Let the ganache set for about 15 minutes at room temperature.

Step 6: Serve


Once the ganache has set, slice the cheesecake with a sharp knife, wiping the knife clean between each cut for neat slices.

Serve chilled and enjoy!

Tips for Success


Room Temperature Ingredients: Ensure the cream cheese and butter are at room temperature for smooth blending.

Chilling Time: Allow the cheesecake to chill thoroughly to achieve the best texture and flavor.

Decorate: For added flair, garnish with chopped peanuts or drizzle with extra melted chocolate before serving.
