Ingredients

  • 1 cup Oreo cookie crumbs
  • 2 tbsp butter, melted
  • 12 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cu peanut butter, creamy
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 egg yolk, room temperature
  • 6 oz milk chocolate, chopped
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter cups, chopped

Instructions

  • Spray a 7 inch springform pan evenly with spray.
  • In a small bowl, combine the oreo crumbs and melted butter.
  • Once combined, spread mixture evenly using a fork, onto bottom of prepared springform pan. 
  • Place pan into freezer for about 10 minutes.
  • While crust is freezing, place the cream cheese and sugar into a medium bowl and combine using a hand held mixer.
  • Once smooth, add in the peanut butter, heavy cream, vanilla, and flour. Stir until just combined.
  • Add in the eggs (and yolk), one at a time, mixing only until just combined. *Be sure not to overmix this step.
  • Remove pan (crust) from freezer and spread cream cheese mixture evenly on crust.
  • Place a paper towel on the bottom of the springform pan and wrap a piece of tin foil around to hold the paper towel close.  Tin foil can wrap around sides of pan if needed. This will absorb any extra moisture when baking.
  • Take a piece of tin foil and fold lengthwise to create a sling. Place under the springform pan.
  • Pour 1 cup water onto bottom of Instant Pot liner and place the metal trivet inside.
  • Lower the springform pan onto the trivet using the sling.
  • Place the lid on top of Instant Pot and bake manual, high pressure, for 50 minutes.
  • Once timer goes off, allow a 10 minute natural pressure release followed by a quick release.
  • Remove the lid and use the sling to take the cheesecake out from pot.
  • Place on a cooling rack for about 30 minutes before placing into the refrigerator to fully chill a minimum of 4 hours, best if overnight.
  • Once fully chilled, place the chopped chocolate in a small bowl.
  • Pour the heavy cream into a saucepan and heat until boiling.
  • Pour boiling cream over milk chocolate and stir until smooth.
  • Pour over cheesecake and sprinkle chopped peanut butter cups on top.
  • Keep refrigerated if not serving right away! Enjoy!
