In small bowl, mix together chocolate wafer crumbs and butter until crumbs are moistened; press into bottom of each paper-lined well of 12-count muffin pan. Set aside.

In large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth; beat in sugar and vanilla until fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, just until combined; stir in peanut butter chips. Spoon mixture over crusts, smoothing tops.

Bake in 325?F (160?C) oven until edges are set and centres still jiggle slightly, 22 to 28 minutes. Let cool on rack; refrigerate until cold, about 4 hours.

In heatproof bowl set over saucepan of hot (not boiling) water, melt chocolate chips, stirring until smooth. Let cool slightly; drizzle over mini cheesecakes. Sprinkle with peanuts. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 48 hours.)
