  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Line 10 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Stir cookie crumbs and butter together in a bowl; press into the prepared muffin cups. Refrigerate chocolate crusts until chilled, about 15 minutes.
  3. Beat peanut butter, cream cheese, and confectioners' sugar together in a bowl until smooth. Spoon peanut mixture over the chocolate crusts; refrigerate until chilled, about 30 minutes.
  4. Pour cream into a microwave-safe bowl and heat in microwave until just before boiling, about 2 minutes. Stir chocolate into cream to melt. Refrigerate ganache until completely chilled, about 1 hour.
  5. Beat ganache using an electric mixer until whipped; spread evenly over peanut butter mixture layer.
  6. Freeze cheesecakes until solid, about 1 hour.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can customize the ganache. For example, once I used a hazelnut cream liqueur and extra peanut butter chips.
  • Substitute Baileys(R) Irish cream for the cream if desired.
  • For sweeter ganache add some icing sugar to your taste! I also used some milk chocolate and some peanut butter chips. It can be sweeter or more bitter, depending on the chocolate you use and the amount of confectioners' sugar you add in.
