Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Pie Recipe

Reese's. Need I say more?
This may be my favorite cheesecake. I love the combination of chocolate with peanut butter! I created this recipe one day when I was having one of my cravings. I made it into a pie so I wouldn't be tempted to eat an entire cheesecake!
Even though cheesecake freezes well, I'd rather eat it right away.
