How to make it

  • In a bowl, combine cracker crumbs, cookie crumbs, sugar and butter. Press onto the bottom and 1 inch up the sides of a greased 9-in springform pan. Place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 7-9 minutes or until set. Cool on a wire rack.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, heat peanut butter on high for 30 seconds or until softened.
  • Spread over crust to within 1 inch of edges.
  • In a large mising bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and sour cream until smooth.
  • Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined.
  • Stir in vanilla.
  • Pour 1 cup mixture into a bowl; set aside. Pour remaining filling over peanut butter layer.
  • In microwave safe bowl, heat 1/4 cup fudge topping on high 30 seconds or until thin; fold into reserved cream cheese mixture.
  • Carefully spoon over filling, cut through filling with a knife to swirl.
  • Place pan on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 for 55-60 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool on a wrie rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen. Cool in the fridge overnight.
  • In the morning take the remaining fudge topping and microwave 30 seconds or until warmed. Pour over top of cheesecake til top is covered.
  • Garnish the top of chocolate topping with chopped up peanut butter cups. I use enough to lighty accent the top. I do not completely cover the entire top. I sprinkle them over the top of the cheesecake. Then when I transfer my cheesecake to a plate I use the remaining chopped of peanut butter cups to garnish around the cheesecake on the plate for a nicer look.
