When I saw Nigella making this on TV, I knew I just have to try this. With her flirtatious look, Nigella lured me into the chocolate-peanut-buttery goodness...
Loaded with all the no-no's by dieticians (yes-yes by me), cheesecakes are nonetheless almost the irresistible dessert. I warn you, this chocolate peanut butter cheesecake is not for the faint-hearted. It's unashamedly indulgence. It's like eating Reese's Peanut Butter Cup in cheesecake form. Yum!!
The base of the cheesecake is rather thick, and that's because it's so delicious. The base is formed by a mixture of digestive biscuits, salted peanuts, dark chocolate chips and soft butter. See? I told you it's delicious.
For the cheesecake filling, obviously a generous amount of cream cheese, eggs, egg yolks, sugar, sour cream and smooth peanut butter. The cheesecake is then baked in the oven until it's just set with a hint of gooey-ness; or in the word of Nigella, the cake should have a hint of inner-thigh wobble...
The cheesecake is then topped with its glorious chocolate spread made by melting milk chocolate, sour cream and soft brown sugar together.
Well, I think it's time for another slice... gotta go now. I have cheesecake to attend to. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday...
