Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake Bars

I'm sorry that I don't have any pictures to post of this recipe in the making or the finished product.  I've made it twice now for some events and it has been a hit both times!  The crust tastes amazing and is super simple.  I'm planning on using it with my lemon bars the next time I make them.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake Bars 
2 cups graham cracker crumbs

1 stick butter, melted

1/3 cup sugar

16 oz cream cheese

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup flour

12 oz evaporated milk

2 eggs

1 Tablespoon vanilla

1-1/2 cups peanut butter and chocolate morsels
Heat oven to 325.  Combine graham cracker crumbs, 1/2 cup melted butter, and 1/3 cup sugar thoroughly; press onto bottom of ungreased 13×9-inch pan.  Microwave 1 cup morsels for 1 minute or until just melted; set aside.  Beat cream cheese, sugar and flour until smooth.  Gradually beat in evaporated milk, eggs and vanilla.  Stir 1 cup cheese mixture into chocolate/peanut butter mixture.  Pour the cheese/chocolate/peanut butter mixture over crust.  Then pour the remaining cheese mixture on top of that.  Take a spoon and swirl around the mixtures a little.  Bake 35 minutes; take out of oven and sprinkle remaining morsels on top.  Bake another 5 minutes.  Let cool 15 minutes; refrigerate 2 hours.  Cut into squares and serve!
