1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup peanut butter
2 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar, sifted
2 tablespoons cornstarch
2 large eggs
1/4 cup sour cream
1 pkg. (12 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips, melted
2 cups water

Prepare crust: Combine peanuts, brown sugar, cocoa, and butter in a small bowl. Press into a 7-inch springform pan, covering bottom and 1 inch of sides. Note: The unsalted peanuts are available at supermarkets. Set aside.

Prepare filling: Using an electric mixer, blend peanut butter, cheese, sugars, and cornstarch together in a bowl until smooth. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, and blend in sour cream. Pour in melted chocolate and blend on low speed until thoroughly mixed. Pour batter into crust. Cover with 2 layers of paper towels, top with foil, and crimp along edge to seal.
