Peanut butter-chocolate cheesecake

My husband isn't a big fan of cheesecake, but he loves chocolate and peanut butter, so I made him this and he loved it! I think I finally got him to like cheesecake. I made it a little healthier, because he has some health issues. I'm not saying this is the healthiest dessert, but it is healthier than your average cheesecake.
