I prepared this rich yummy dessert recently, and our guests wanted seconds. The crunchy chopped peanut crust is such a nice complement to the creamy chocolate and peanut butter layers. You're sure to be asking for seconds, too! -Patricia Senkow Dickson City, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW

This is a favorite both at home and at the office. I first made it as a birthday alternative for my son when he requsted the peanut butter cheesecake from a pricey chain restaurant. The consensus of opinion is that this is better! Everyone will rave if you make it. I buy the tiny Reese's peanut butter cups to sprinkle with the peanuts on top, or cut the miniatures into chunks if I can't find the tiny ones. It is a very special dessert.

I have made this dessert many times, and everyone always goes crazy about it! I have also made it with cashews and almonds and was good that way too.

This was a dessert brought to our cousins reunion today and it was a big hit. Lots of peanut flavor and the texture of the crust is great.
