Ingredients

For the base:

  • 1 1/4 cups Oreo cookie crumbs
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter

For the cheesecake:

  • 900 grams cream cheese (approximately 32 ounces)
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups whipped cream

For the chocolate ganache:

  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 500 grams high quality milk chocolate (approximately 18 ounces)

For garnish:

  • crushed peanuts
  • whipped cream

Instructions

  • Add the Oreo cookie crumbs and the melted butter to a small bowl and stir to combine.
  • Press the Oreo cookie mixture into the bottom of a 9-inch spring form pan and set in the refrigerator to chill.
  • Whip the cream cheese on high speed in a large bowl, adding the powdered sugar slowly until the mixture is creamy and fluffy.
  • Add the peanut butter and continue beating on high speed until everything is incorporated.
  • Fold in the whipped cream with a rubber spatula just until combined and pour the cheesecake mixture into the spring form pan on top of the chilled crust.
  • Smooth out the top carefully with a spatula and allow the cheesecake to set in the freezer for 6 to 12 hours, or overnight for best results.
  • Make the ganache by heating the whipping cream in a small pot on the stove or in the microwave, removing from the heat just before boiling.
  • Pour the hot cream over the milk chocolate in a separate bowl and stir gently until the chocolate has melted and the ganache is smooth.
  • Cool the ganache completely to room temperature before spooning it over the chilled cheesecake.
  • Store the cheesecake in the refrigerator until serving to be sure the ganache sets and to give the cheesecake a chance to thaw (1-2 hours in the fridge is best)
  • Just before serving, add some whipped cream and crushed peanuts to the top!
