Reesecup Cheesecake

Reesecup Cheesecake

So yes I married a Christmas Eve baby!!  So we have been eating clean for 8 months now and love the way I feel from fueling my body with the proper foods.  So to blog a recipe that is not clean at all is unlike me, but my husband had a request for this so I baked one for him.  Being in the kitchen is something I enjoy for sure, to me it's a great stress reliever even if I'm doing the dishes.
Reesecup Cheesecake

1 1/2 cups of graham crackers crumbs
2 tablespoons of sugar
3 tablespoons of melted butter

24 oz. of soft cream cheese
2 eggs
1/2 cups sour cream
1/2 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup of peanut butter
4 Reese cups (crumble)
6 tablespoons of chocolate syrup

Preheat oven 350 degrees, mix crust ingredients and press into cheesecake pan (9" spring form pan).  Bake for 8 minutes and pull out of the oven to cool.  Place peanut butter in measuring cup and heat for 30 seconds then pour onto warm crust and set aside.  Next take your mixing bowl and place cream cheese, eggs, sugar, & vanilla, and mix well until creamy and blended (about 1 minute).  Next take a cup of batter and place in a different bowl and add 3 tablespoons of chocolate syrup and mix.  Place white batter in cheesecake pan, then top with chocolate batter.  Take a butter knife and swirl.  Next bake for 40-50 minutes, you want it to still have a little jiggle left when it's ready to come out of the oven.  Cool for 30 minutes then run a butter knife around the outside edge.  Take ring off after it's been cooling for 3 hours, drizzle remaining syrup on top and sprinkle Reese cups on top.  Place in refrigerator for 24 hours and then serve.
Happy Birthday Steve!!
