#3811 - Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake

(by Shirley McNevich)

8oz. Philadelphia cream cheese (softened)
1/3 cup Breakstone's sour cream
3/4 cup Jif smooth peanut butter
1 cup + 3 TBSP Domino's powdered sugar
1/3 cup chopped peanuts
1 - 9" Keebler ready-made graham cracker crust (OR chocolate crust if you prefer)
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup Hershey's cocoa
1 bag Nestle's peanut butter chips
chocolate cookie sprinkles

Sprinkle the chopped peanuts evenly into the bottom of the ready-made crust. In a mixer add cream cheese and sour cream--bat. Add peanut butter and 1 cup of powdered sugar--beat until smooth. Spread the batter evenly into the crust (all the way to the edges). In a mixer add heavy cream, cocoa and 3 TBSP powdered sugar--beat until mixed and leave it in the mixer bowl. Refrigerate both the pie and the bowl of topping mixture until cold and cheesecake is set. Remove both from refrigerator. Place the topping mixture back on the mixer--beat until stiff peaks form. Spread the topping mixture evenly over the top of the pie. Sprinkle peanut butter chips (your choice of amount) and chocolate sprinkles evenly over the top of the pie.
