I made this for my fiance's fifteen year-old son's birthday. He's quite a picky eater and doesn't like cakes or pies, but he loves Reese's Cups, so I thought I could win him over with this. I used others' suggestions and substituted chopped peanut butter cups for the chocolate chips, used chocolate graham crackers for the crust, and I didn't put the pan in a water bath, but did put a 13 x 9 pan of water directly below it in the oven. I also put a thin layer of melted chocolate over the top of it and sprinkled on a few more chopped peanut butter cups. The birthday boy ate it, but didn't seem blown away by it (it had that slight tang that cheesecake's often have, and I think that probably didn't sit well with him)...however, my fiance loved it so much he nearly ate the entire thing over a period of four days, and now he's begging that I make it for his birthday, too! Personally, I enjoyed it but think I'd like it better if it had been a chocolate cheesecake with peanut butter added and a peanut butter glaze on top, so I'll probably try combining this recipe with a chocolate cheesecake one when I make it for my fiance.
