  • Yields: 12 Cheesecake Cups


1 cup chocolate wafer crumbs

2 tablespoons sugar

4 tablespoons melted butter

1 8oz block cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/3 cup sour cream

1 cup peanut butter

2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/4 cup chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 12 cup muffin tin with cupcake liners; set aside.

In a bowl, combine chocolate wafers, sugar and melted butter, tossing to coat. Place a tablespoon of crumb mixture into the each cup. Gently press down with your spoon. Place pan in the freezer while you prepare the filling.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat cream cheese until creamy. Add brown sugar and sour cream and continue to beat until light and fluffy. Add peanut butter. Stir in eggs and vanilla and continue to mix until fully incorporated.

Using a large cookie scoop, divide peanut butter mixture between each of the 12 cupcake liners.

Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl. Place a teaspoon of chocolate onto each peanut butter filled cupcake and gently swirl with a knife or an offset spatula.

Bake cheesecakes for 15-18 minutes or just until set. Remove and let cheesecakes cool. Refrigerate cheesecakes for 4 hours before serving.

Do you press crumb mixture just on bottom of cupcake liners or up onto the sides too?

Hi Margaret,

Sorry for the very late response, but 1/4 cup of chocolate chips should be listed in the ingredients. This will get melted and swirled into each cheesecake cup before baking.

Thank you,

Margaret Leppert

I am in the middle of making this recipe for an employee’s birthday tomorrow and got to the one of the final points: melt chocolate in the microwave…there is no ingredient listing for chocolate!!! I am going to try and figure out what chocolate to use since I have already made the rest of the recipe and have nothing else to make for tomorrow!!! If you have an idea please let me know:)
