Every truly decadent, classic cheesecake takes time and effort to produce. Still, one taste of this Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake makes it all worthwhile. For a perfectly firm and creamy cheesecake, allow 6 hours from start to finish. Preparing this dessert the night before an event will save you time and worry about the cheesecake layer atmosphere.

The most important trick for making chocolate peanut butter cheesecake:

  • Check out these Mini Cheesecakes, the bars variation below, or a no-bake recipe if you need a fast cheesecake. A conventional cheesecake recipe, on the other hand, would necessitate patience and time.
  • Begin with all of the ingredients at room temperature, including the dairy and, in particular, the cream cheese. This will make it easier to blend it together without over-mixing.
  • To avoid over-mixing the cheesecake layer, use a low-medium speed mixer. When you overmix cheesecakes, more air is produced, which causes the filling to puff up while cooking.

Oil and cling film a 20cm round loose-bottomed cake pan, smoothing it out as much as possible. In a pan, melt the butter. By thrashing the biscuits in a bag with a rolling pin, crush them, then stir them into the batter until thoroughly coated.


When preparing the filling, soak the gelatine in water. In a mixing bowl, combine the ricotta, peanut butter, and syrup. Ricotta has a slightly grainy texture, so blitz with a stick blender until smooth if you want a smoother texture.


Squeeze the gelatine out of the water it has been soaked in. Place it in a pan with the milk and heat it until the gelatine dissolves, stirring constantly. Incorporate the peanut butter into the mixture, then spoon onto the biscuit foundation. Chill until ready to use.


To freeze, leave in the tin and cover the surface with cling film as soon as it is solid, then wrap the tin in cling film and foil.


Thaw in the fridge overnight to defrost.


Carefully remove the cake from the tin to serve. Mix well together with the cream and sugar until stiff, then layer on top of the cheesecake and sprinkle with the peanut brittle.

• Pretzel Crust: Instead of graham crackers, 2 cups of pretzel crumbs can be used to make a salty, sweet pretzel crust. Using the same amount of butter and sugar as the recipe calls for.

• Peanut Butter Ganache: In a medium saucepan, melt the peanut butter. Instead of cookies, make a Peanut Butter Ganache with 1 cup peanut butter chips and 1/2 cup heavy cream.
