How to prepare Reese’s Peanut Butter Cheesecake? 

Begin by preparing the pan. I used a 9 inch spring form pan that I lined with parchment paper and sprayed with non stick spray. Next, make Oreo cookies crust – put Oreo in food processor and pulse until you get fine crumbs. Then, mix the Oreo crumbs with melted butter and press the mixture into the bottom and sides of a spring form so that a solid layer is formed. Put it in the fridge to cool until you finish cheesecake filling. 

The next step is a cheesecake filling. Begin by mixing cream cheese and granulated sugar until its smooth, and then add peanut butter and vanilla extract and mix some more until it’s combined.  In a separate dish, beat heavy cream with powdered sugar until stiff peaks form and put in a dish with cream cheese and peanut butter mixture and mix some more until it’s well combined. Finally, add chopped Reese’s and stir gently. Spread cheesecake filling over Oreo crust evenly, put it in the fridge and let cool for at least 6h, possibly overnight.

To prepare chocolate ganache, begin by heating heavy whipping cream that should be removed from heat before boiling. Use it to spread over chopped chocolate or chocolate chips, cover and leave for 2-3 min and then whisk until it becomes smooth.  

Pour ganache over the cheesecake and spread evenly to the edges. Top with chopped Reese’s.
