- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- ½ cup Reese’s peanut butter chips
- 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
Combine graham cracker crumbs with sugar and melted butter and pat down on the bottom of a 7-inch springform pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.
Cream together the cream cheese and sugar until smooth and then mix in the eggs one at a time. Add in the vanilla or almond extract and sour cream and mix until smooth.
Pour into springform pan on top of the graham cracker crust.
Run a fork back and forth through the cheesecake several times to remove air bubbles.
Add Reese’s peanut butter chips and chocolate syrup to the top of the cheesecake.

Make a sling out of aluminum foil to lower the pan into the pressure cooker.
Close the lid of the Instant Pot and turn to sealing position.
Set for a manual high pressure time of 35 minutes. When time has finished, allow for a natural release for 12 minutes before letting out the rest of the steam.

If desired, add additional toppings before serving.
