Chocolate & Peanut Butter Mousse Cheesecake
Total TimePrep: 50 min. + chilling
Made this for a friend for his Thanksgiving. He can't stop talking about it. Followed recipe and made it easy as pie. Very rich, but oh, so good!
This was a huge hit by everyone who had a slice. I agree you should only eat a sliver at a time being that it is so rich, but this cheesecake is absolutely fabulous just the way it is written.

Made it without the ganache top and glad I did - it is rich enough with the two layers, plus just the two layers filled my store-bought graham cracker pie crust. I used Almond butter instead of Peanut, and added half a teaspoon of Almond Extract. I think non-cheesecake fans will love this!

This was better the next day. Make a day ahead.
I made this for a Christmas celebration. It is a bit time consuming to make, but it is delicious! It is very rich, so cut small pieces. Almost better than a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup!
This was stupid amazing!! A friend had made this recipe for my husband and he loved it, so I thought I'd give it a try for his bday. There were a lot of steps to it, but so worth it. I let a coworker try it and her response was, "I'd like to swim in it"! Haha Anyway, I did have a few revisions. First, I used shortbread cookies instead of chocolate wafers. I used the same amount as it calls for in the recipe. Second, I used semi-sweet chocolate instead of bittersweet and for both chocolate it called for, I just used chocolate chips. Worked like a charm! I will absolutely be making this again!
I made this for a Booster Club dessert silent auction at the annual crab feed and it was a hit!$$$$$
This tasted pretty good but, I wouldn't take it to a potluck or work to impress anyone. My crust was to thick with 1-1/2 cups and much of it stayed in the pan when serving. My peanut butter layer was way thin and my chocolate layer didn't set. Part of that peanut butter layer was my issue with the way the recipe was written. I had to keep rereading and cross checking and still I made the mistake of using 1/3 cup of confection sugar instead of the 1-1/4 cups confection sugar as my eyes say the 1/3 cup sugar so I only had 1/3 cup confection sugar int he peanut butter layer. My whipped cream got very stiff and I don't know how I could have added more confection sugar anyway. I did find this recipe to be very costly with all the ingredients. My whip cream ran over 5.00 my chocolates over 5.00 as well. It also take a lot of bowls and pans so be ready to wash in between layers or have a large collection of cookware. It was rich and taste just not pretty.
