    • 100g (7 tablespoons) melted butter

    For the filling:

    • 2 1/3 cups (525g) cream cheese

    • 2/3 cup (160 ml) heavy cream
    • 125g (4.4 oz) dark chocolate
DIRECTIONS

1. In a food processor, process biscuits until crumbs are formed. Add melted butter and process again until combined. press into bottom of 9-inch (23 cm) springform pan. Refrigerate while making the filling.

2. In a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese and powdered sugar. Beat until smooth and creamy. Add peanut butter, vanilla extract and beat again until smooth and creamy. Add the heavy cream and beat 2-3 minutes more until smooth.

3. Pour the cheesecake mixture into the springform pan. Refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight. You can also freeze the cake.

4. Prepare the ganache: in a small saucepan bring to simmer heavy cream, remove from heat and add chopped chocolate. Let stand 1 minute and stir until the chocolate has melted and the ganache is smooth.

5. Let cool slightly and pour over the cheesecake. You can pour straight into the springform pan or open it and then pour the ganache.

6. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving.

• The cake doesn't contain gelatin, so it won't be very stable. For better results freeze the cake for 1 hour before serving.

    I’ve made this cake three times so far. It always starts crumbling into a pile of goo once I leave it out of the fridge for too long. I will try to add some eggs this time and bake it for a bit this time. See what the results will be like

    The video shows softened cream cheese and melted peanut butter why doesnt the recipe reflect what the video shows? Also how do you get them softened and melted?

    To soften butter and cream cheese just take it out of the fridge and let it sit for an hour. Do not microwave!! Room temperature.

    The peanut butter could probably be mixed WITHOUT heating it up and liquifying like shown in the video. Also, if you FREEZE it, it would be best to cut the pie FROZEN (or pretty much frozen), but serve after each slice has been plated for approx 10+ minutes or so.
