Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

This is my most-requested recipe. Birthdays, holidays, whatever. I've had people pay me for this one, which is just mind-boggling to me. Something I made? Worth money? Wow. No matter how many times it's happened, it still amazes me. This is also one of my published recipes, too. :D

1¼ cups graham cracker crumbs
1/3 cup plus 1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
3 pkgs (8 oz.each) cream cheese, softened
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
1-2/3 cups (10 oz. pkg.) peanut butter chips, melted
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 cup swirled peanut butter/chocolate morsels

Preheat oven to 300F.

In bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs, sugar, cocoa and butter. Press mixture onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan.

In large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in sweetened condensed milk then melted peanut butter chips until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Stir in small chocolate chips. Pour over crust.

Bake 55 to 65 minutes or until center is set. Remove from oven to cooling rack. With knife, loosen cake from side of pan. Cool completely; remove side of pan.
