Layered cheesecake - any advice?

It is my husband's birthday on Friday and he would like a layered peanut butter chocolate cheesecake. I've searched the boards and found much cheesecake wisdom, but nothing specifically about making layered cheesecakes. Has anyone had any experience with this? I've made chocolate cheesecakes before, but never tried peanut butter.

I'm hoping to keep it fairly simple - nice thick graham cracker crust with crushed peanuts, a layer of dark chocolate cheesecake, a layer of peanut butter cheesecake and maybe some chocolate ganache over the top.

I was wondering if the cheesecake layers will stay separate if I pour them on top of each other? Or if I should pour one layer in, chill to firm up and then pour the next layer on before baking?
