Updated on April 8, 2012
5 stars from 3 ratings of Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

I like peanut butter, chocolate and cheesecake. So i thought that if I put them all together I could have three favorites in one dessert. So I gave it a try and this cheesecake (peanut butter with chocolate chips mixed intot he batter and topped with chocolate) is what i got. It's really good, and sure to make anyone who loves chocolate and peanut butter happy!

      I'm a lover of chocolate and peanut butter, so I really look forward to trying this! Cream cheese is pretty expensive here, though, so I'll have to wait for a special occasion. Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe!
