Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake

 chopped Reese's peanut butter cups
 oreo cookie crust



In general, I'd call myself a traditionalist.  But this year I decided to stray from the typical "holiday desserts" and go with something that I've always wanted to bake- a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake.  I have to say it was one of my favorite desserts I've made to date.  It was rich, creamy, and decadent-all the things I look for in a holiday dessert.  I used this recipe, but changed the topping into a chocolate mixture (I melted 5 ounces of milk chocolate chips with 1/4 cup sour cream over the stove, stirring constantly, then spread it over the cheesecake and refrigerated overnight).  If you're a peanut butter/chocolate lover, I highly recommend this for your next dinner party.

You are on fire with your baking! I feel like every week you are creating something delicious and adventurous!

I love a cheesecake. It is my downfall, really. It goes right to the hips, but I don't care. It is so worth it.
