Ingredients

FOR THE BASE

  • 250g plain sweet biscuits (I used Digestives)
  • 100g unsalted butter

FOR THE FILLING

  • 500g cream cheese
  • 340g peanut butter (you can use smooth or crunchy)
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup thickened cream
  • 4 Reese’s Peanut Butter cups – roughly chopped

FOR THE TOPPING

  • 200g dark chocolate melts
  • 100ml thickened cream
  • 4 Reese’s Peanut Butter cups – roughly chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped peanuts

Method

  1. To make the base; crush your biscuits to smithereens. Either with a rolling pin or in your Breville food processor. I like to leave some pieces a little chunkier than others, other people prefer to blitz it until it is like sand. Either way works.
  2. Melt the butter in the microwave and pour it on top of biscuit crumbs. Combine with a spoon until you reach wet-sand consistency. Transfer to baking paper lined spring form tin. Press evenly into base and then place this in to the fridge.
  3. To make the filling; in your Bakery Boss, using the Scraper beater, combine the cream cheese and peanut butter on CREAMING speed for a couple of minutes.
  4. Add in cream and sugar and cream until well combined. This should take about 5 minutes.
  5. Add in chopped chunks of the Resse’s PB cups and combine on slower speed for about 1 minute.
  6. Transfer to cheesecake base and using a spatula spread mixture into tin evenly. Place back in to the fridge overnight (or for at least 6 hours)
  7. Once set (i.e. the next day or 6 hours later) you will want to top with the ganache, more chopped Reese’s and chopped peanuts. To make the ganache, place the chocolate and cream in a bowl and melt in the Breville ‘Quick Touch microwave. Do this in 20 second bursts, stirring at each interval. Carry on until they have melted together and are completely combined. Pour over cheesecake evenly and generously cover in Reese’s and nuts.
  8. Place this back into the fridge for at least an hour (preferably 2) and then serve to your lucky guests!
