Instead of topping with just melted chocolate we also chopped more peanut butter cups and sprinkled that over the top. Excellent recipe! Good overall cheesecake recipe too.

Absolutely the best cheesecake I've ever eaten! Made it for my family and several freinds numerous times and have received several requests for it since then. Even sold a few.
You've got to try this one!!!
