Reese's Cheesecake Brownies

A coworker at work was going away and as usual, we had a food day to say farewell!  I decided to make this delicious dessert that I had pinned quite some time ago.  It lived up to the yumminess I envisioned in my head!  Definitely making this one again!

Reese’s Cheesecake Brownies
Recipe from Pip and Ebby Blog
Servings: 12-18
Ready in: 3 hours

One 19.5-oz. box chocolate fudge brownie mix 
One 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened 
One 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk 
1⁄2 cup creamy peanut butter
12 oz. Reese’s Pieces candy 
One 12-oz. bag milk chocolate chips 
3 tablespoons whipping cream 
12 large Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, chopped (easiest to do if you freeze them first)

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. 
2.  Prepare the brownie mix according to package directions. Spread the batter in pan and set aside. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with hand-held mixer until fluffy. Add condensed
milk and peanut butter and beat until smooth. Stir in the Reese’s Pieces candies. Spoon the
mixture over the batter. Spread evenly. 
3.  Bake for 40 minutes or until cheesecake layer is set and edges are golden brown. Cool for
30 minutes and refrigerate for 30 minutes. 
4.  In a small microwaveable bowl, microwave the chocolate chips and whipping cream for 1
minute, or until chips are melted. Stir until smooth. Spread over cheesecake layer. Sprinkle Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup pieces over top. Store covered in the refrigerator.
