Peanut Chocolate Cheesecake with Meringues

If you have a weakness for chocolate this cheesecake might be the right choice for you. Because this cake is heavy on chocolate both in the filling and the glaze. You can even enrich the chocolatey goodness with crunchy peanuts and biscuit base. Did we mention the crumbled Snickers and meringue topping? It’s the icing on the cake (pun intended).
