Reese’s? Cheesecake? SURE

Posted on August 26, 2011. Filed under: Deserts | Tags: , , |

I got a hankering to make some cheesecake earlier on in the week and asked Matt (I’ll tell you about him later =D) and he said Reese’s, so I was like, why not? I followed the recipe except for one thing (Ok, 2…forgot the water bath!). They used a topping of mixed sour cream and sugar put on top…and I thought that was weird, so I put chocolate ganache on it instead and it turned out AWESOME. Try it out! (Hopefully you’ll get it to set in the oven better than I did…sigh!)

  6. Stir in vanilla, then fold in peanut butter cup pieces with a rubber spatula.

  8. Place springform pan into a larger baking pan.
  9. Pour hot water into the larger pan so that the water comes 1 inch up the sides of the springform pan.

  11. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack for one hour.
