  • 2 cups crushed chocolate graham crackers
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  • Chocolate ganache (optional for topping)
  • Additional Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups for decoration


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C). Mix the crushed graham crackers with melted butter and press into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, peanut butter, sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, fully incorporating each before adding the next. Stir in heavy cream.
  3. Fold in the chopped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and pour the mixture over the crust.
  4. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until the center is just set and the top appears dull. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around the edge of the pan to loosen; cool for an additional hour.
  5. Refrigerate the cheesecake overnight. Before serving, top with chocolate ganache and decorate with additional Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
  • Storage
    Store any leftovers in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 3 days.
