Peanut Butter Chocolate CheesecakeMake on Drop
I have been immersed in a Raw Food/Vegetarian project for all you healthy peeps out there, and frankly this is my break out blog! Not Raw! Not healthy! Calorie Laden! All Bad, but tastes so good! Sinfully delicious. If you like peanut and chocolate (and why wouldn't you??) then this is the recipe for you. Almost like an enormous Peanut Butter Cup, but better. Enjoy...and don't say I never give you anything! (While you wait patiently for the healthy Vegetarian book that is coming your way.)
Best of all, come join us on the Insider Club to have extra Thermomixery each and every month! #recipesthatwork #youcandoit

- 340 Grams cream cheese
- 370 Grams Crunchy or Smooth Peanut Butter Recipe

Pre heat oven to fan forced 180ºC. Grease and line the base of 22cm spring form tin with baking paper.
Place shortbread into Thermomix bowl and mill 10 sec/speed 8.
Press into the prepared tin and bake for 10-15 minutes until golden. Cool.
Place cream and sugar into Thermomix bowl and cook 5 min/50ºC/speed 1-2.
Add cream cheese and peanut butter and mix 15 sec/speed 5.
Pour onto biscuit base and smooth top with spatula. Set in the fridge until cold before making ganache topping.
To make ganache, place cream into Thermomix bowl and heat 3 min/90ºC/speed 2.
Add butter and chocolate and mix 2 min/speed soft. Blend 5 sec/speed 3.
Pour over pie filling and allow to set completely before serving in (very) small slices!
However...feel free to serve in whopping great big slices if you had a week anything like mine!
