Preheat oven to 170°c and grease 20cm springform pan. Place on baking sheet. Set aside. Beat eggs with castor sugar until light in colour, then add butter, vanilla extract and salt. Beat until smooth. Sift flour and cocoa together and mix with chopped chocolate. Mix egg mixture with flour/chocolate mixture. Pour half the batter into the pan. Drizzle with half the melted peanut butter. Swirl in using back of a spoon. Repeat with remaining batter and peanut butter. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes. Middle should still be slightly soft. Remove from pan and allow to cool completely.

Snickers ganache:

Add gelatine in thin stream into cheesecake mixture and beat until smooth. Spoon one-third of cream cheese mixture on top of cake. Swirl in half of snickers mixture. Repeat ending with cream cheese. Place in fridge for 4 - 5 hours or until set.
