For the Crust:

  • 2 cups Oreo cookie crumbs
  • 3 TBSP unsalted butter, melted

For the Cheesecake:

  • 4 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 3 eggs, room temperature
  • 2 egg yolks, room temperature
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 2 TBSP all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 ½ tsp. vanilla bean paste
  • 1 cup chopped peanut butter cups

For the Chocolate Cream Cheese Mousse:

  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate, chopped
  • 4 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream
  • Mini Peanut Butter Cups for topping


  1. Prepare the Crust: Mix Oreo crumbs with melted butter. Press firmly into the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan. Chill while you prepare the filling.
  2. Make the Cheesecake Filling: In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add eggs and yolks, one at a time, fully incorporating after each addition. Mix in both sugars, peanut butter, flour, heavy cream, and vanilla bean paste until well combined. Gently fold in chopped peanut butter cups. Pour the mixture over the chilled crust.
  3. Bake: Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Bake the cheesecake for 60-70 minutes, or until the center is set but slightly jiggly. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. Prepare the Chocolate Cream Cheese Mousse: Melt the chocolate and let it cool slightly. In a separate bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth, then blend in the cooled chocolate. In another bowl, whip the heavy cream to stiff peaks and gently fold it into the chocolate mixture. Spread this mousse over the cooled cheesecake.
  5. Garnish: Decorate the top with mini peanut butter cups. Refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 4 hours, or overnight, to set.
