I loved this! I normally do not like cheesecakes but this was delicious. I made the filling and instead of making the crust and having bars, i poured it into 2 already prepared 9 inch pie crusts. Amazing!

As I have been unable to find the swirled morsels here in my hometown, I had to wait til my friend went over the border and brought me back a couple of packages from Buffalo. I love the combination of chocolate & peanut butter - but then, I love cheesecake, period! Thanks for this recipe - it is definitely a keeper.

These are Great!
