Choc and Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Firstly a big thanks to Suzanne Gibbs for her recipe on ninemsn. A sinful combination of chocolate and peanut butter...WOW! I wanted to make this since like forever and since it is my birthday tomorrow, just thought, I would whip this up tonite. Crazy huh? Yup, totally nuts!


200g chocolate wheten biscuits, broken
60g butter, melted
125 ml milk (I used double cream)
210g crunchy peanut butter
250g cream cheese
1/2 cup caster sugar (Whoopsy, I forgot about this...heheh!)
30g dark chocolate, melted ( Yeah Baby!!)

1. Line base of a 23cm loose-based flan pan with baking paper. Process broken biscuits into fine crumbs. Add melted butter and extra tablespoon of milk and process until well combined. Press mixture over base and sides of pan. Chill while making filling.

2. Place peanut butter and remaining milk in a small saucepan and heat on low for 10 minutes, stirring, until smooth. Remove from heat and cool.

3. Using an electric mixer with paddle or V-groove beaters, beat cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Stir in peanut butter mixture. Spoon into chocolate crust, cover loosely with plastic wrap and chill for three hours, until firm.

4. Place melted chocolate in a small plastic bag and snip off corner. Drizzle melted chocolate finely back and forth over cheesecake. Return to fridge and leave to set for 15 minutes. Cut into wedges to serve.
