Instructions
  1. COMBINE 1 cup cookie crumbs and butter; press onto bottom of 7-inch springform pan sprayed with cooking spray. Wrap foil around bottom of pan.
  2. BEAT 2 pkg cream cheese in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add melted chocolate, vanilla and 1/2 cup sugar; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at time, mixing on low speed after each just until blended. Pour over crust; cover with additional foil.
  3. PLACE trivet in pressure cooking pot. Add 1 cup water. Make foil sling by folding 24-inch-long sheet of foil lengthwise into thirds. Place sling in center of cooker, then carefully place springform pan on middle of sling.
  4. CLOSE and lock lid in place. Select Manual and cook on HIGH 1 hour. Use natural pressure release for 10 min., then slowly remove lid.
  5. REMOVE cheesecake from cooker. (Center of cheesecake should just have slight movement when pan is gently jiggled.)
  6. TRANSFER cheesecake to wire rack. Remove and discard foil. Run knife around rim of pan to loosen cake. Remove rim. Cool cheesecake completely. Refrigerate 4 hours.
  7. BEAT remaining cream cheese and remaining sugar in medium bowl with mixer until blended. Add peanut butter; mix well. Add COOL WHIP; beat just until blended. Spread over cheesecake; sprinkle with remaining cookie crumbs.

    These directions are not easy to follow. I’m already lost at the foil wrapping and where it goes. Now the trivet and tent is confusing.

    Turned out to look exactly like the picture. The foil is there so it is easier to remove from the pot. If you follow the instruction step by step, it works out. A recipe worth trying if you love chocolate and peanut butter.

    Made this for the first time and huge hit!

    I usee parchment paper instead of foil to line my springform pan and put foil loosely over the top to keeo moisture out. Paper towel will work just as good.

    Cool in pan for about an hour on a rack then put in the refrigerator for an hour before removing from the pan and adding the peanut butter topping.

    I want to make this but im not clear on spraying the pan and covering with foil. Doesnt make sense to me. Can someone clarify this step?

    Delicious! Very rich, so you only need to serve small pieces. Made this for my peanut butter-loving husband, it was such a big hit that I’m remaking it for Thanksgiving dessert! The only part I’m confused on is the bottom if the springform pan, how do I remove it before serving???
