No Bake Peanut Butter Cheesecake

For the Oreo Crust
  • 1 1/2 cup Oreo cookie baking crumbs
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter , melted
For the Cheesecake Layer
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 20 oz cream cheese , softened to room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup peanut butter , not natural
  • 1 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 bag miniature peanut butter cups
  1. Lightly spray a 9 inch spring-form pan with cooking spray. 
  2. In a medium bowl stir together the Oreo crumbs and melted butter. Then press the mixture into the bottom of the prepared spring-form pan.  
  3. In a large bowl beat the whipping cream until stiff peaks form. 
  4. In a separate large bowl beat together the cream cheese, peanut butter and powdered sugar until no lumps remain. Then beat in the whipped cream. 
  5. Spoon the mixture over the crust and smooth the top. Cover and chill in the fridge to allow the cheesecake to set for at least 2 hours. 
  6. When ready to serve, melt the chocolate chips in the microwave in short 30 second bursts stirring between each. 
  7. Remove the cake from the fridge. Trace around the outside of the cake with a sharp knife, then unclamp the spring-form pan. Cut into pieces and top each with melted chocolate & peanut butter cups.
