Peanut Butter Cheesecake with Brownie Bottom and Reese's is a decadent and irresistible, easy to make cheesecake. It is loaded with Reese's and covered in silky smooth chocolate ganache.
Follow the instructions on the box, once the batter is prepared, pour it into the pan and cover with a layer of peanut butter cups (I used peanut butter eggs).
Beat the cream cheese and peanut butter together on medium speed until smooth. Add the sugar, vanilla extract and continue to beat on medium speed until well combined. Reduce the speed to low and add the eggs one at a time, beating until combined after each addition. Using a spatula, scrape the bowl and mix on low for another 30 seconds. Pour the cheesecake filling on top of the raw brownie layer. Level the top with a spatula.
Bring a medium saucepan half filled with water to a boil. Place chocolate in a medium bowl set over the saucepan of simmering water, let it melt, stirring just a few times. Make sure the bowl doesn't touch the boiling water, to avoid overheating. Remove bowl from heat and pour the chocolate on top of the cheesecake, using a spatula distribute it evenly. Decorate with mini peanut butter cups and peanut M&M’s.
