Nothing says love like dessert, and nothing says dessert like chocolate and peanut butter. Combine them into decadent cheesecake perfection and you’ve earned brownie points (or cheesecake points, as it were) from now until next Valentine’s Day.
So, what’s in the cake? Well, all the peanut butter and all the chocolate, of course. You’ll start with a chocolate crust formed from chocolate cookie crumbs, ground bittersweet chocolate, brown sugar and hot melted butter. You’ll continue with a thick puddle of chocolate-peanut butter ganache nested inside this crust. Over it, you’ll pour a large bowl of peanut butter cheesecake batter with sour cream, eggs, vanilla, don’t fight it, please.
