Wow, these were rich!  We had to eat them in small portions because it was so sweet and yummy, but totally worth it.  Sorry for the picture, I had them cut all pretty and then the kids came and ruined what little artistic creativity I had in arranging them.  Oh well, I guess you will just have to try them :).  I found the recipe here.

1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

2.  With electric mixer combine cream cheese and sugar in small bowl until smooth.  Stir in egg, mix well.  Stir in peanut butter cups.  Pour over cake layer and bake 25-35 minutes or until cheesecake layer is cooked through.  Remove and let cool completely.
