Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake with Chocolate Glaze

chocolate glaze recipe

I made this recipe for my little sister’s birthday celebration and everyone loved it!  The recipe is from Martha Stewart and I almost followed it completely.  However, the crust called for chocolate wafer cookies and I can’t find them where I live so I subbed chocolate fudge striped cookies.  The crust was amazing – a treat in itself!

Also – I tend to skip the water bath (see step 5) and yes, sometimes the top of the cheesecakes crack because of skipping that step.  But it’s fine with me since I typically top a cheesecake with a glaze or fruit.

Graham Cracker Bars – Old Fashioned Goodness!

A friend at Eat.at introduced me to this recipe and it brought me back to childhood snacking on graham crackers.  But these are oh-so-much better!  Why?  They have a chewy center reminiscent of pecan pie filling but not as sweet. And they are a snap to make with the food processor.

The only thing I would do next time is add 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips to the filling to make them chocolate graham cracker bars – YUM!
