6ouncesabout 3/4 Cup Milk Chocolate, roughly chopped
2/3CupRoughly Chopped Peanut Butter Cups

Pour 1 cup water into the instant pot and place a trivet in the bottom.
To Make the Crust

To Make the Filling
In a large bowl, with a handheld mixer, mix the cream cheese and sugar on medium speed until smooth.
Blend in the peanut butter, heavy cream, vanilla and flour.
One at a time, mix in the eggs and egg yolk.
Pour the batter over the crust and cover the pan with foil.

Remove to cool and remove the foil.
After it's cooled, place in the fridge for 3-4 hours or overnight.
