Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownie Bottom Cheesecake

That name is a mouthful, right?!?!

Goodness, you guys it’s been a heck of a weekend. I should be regaling you with wild stories of bachelorette fun today but, the older and more domestic I get, the more I find myself avoiding the parties and wild scenes. I really did apologetically decline going to my niece’s pre-bridal celebration and stayed home to paint a room and bake this lovely pile of PB and chocolate dreaminess right here.

It wasn’t planned. It never is. I live a low carb life for the most part so, when I throw something like this or a pile of potato something on the site, you can guess Mother Nature has got me by the ass that week. I get super “nesty” and super carby once a month and, the closer I get to menopause the more frequent my carb binges happen. Enough about that. I’m sitting in my doctor’s office as I write this ready to report how healthy and fit I’ve been living. Should’ve brought her some.

This post is not about healthy shit so let’s stop all that talk right now.

This recipe just kind of happened. I had a sweet tooth, a box of brownie mix, a 5 lb jar of peanut butter (don’t even ask!!) and a couple of hours free from my home improvement project. I ran to the store to get a few items for our dinner and I grabbed a bag of those Tollhouse™️ Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chips along with some cream cheese to complete the ingredients list for this bad boy.

I was going to chat with you about what exactly I’m doing to the house but, that, my friends is an entirely separate article for later.

It looks complicated but, the only difficulty I had was staying the hell out of it while it rested and cooled. I think you’ll experience the same issues.

What you’ll need:

Brownie Base:

1 box brownie mix (the 13×9, not 8×8) and the ingredients to prepare. Probably 2/3 c oil, 2 eggs, .25 c water. This is based on my 12″ springform pan. You’ll want the smaller mix if you use an 8 or 9 inch pan.

Cheesecake Filling:

2 cartons whipped cream cheese

2 c smooth peanut butter

.5 c powdered sugar

2 eggs

.5 bag of Nestle Tollhouse™️ chocolate chip peanut butter morsels

Topping:

.5 bag chocolate PB chips

.5 c heavy cream

1 small bag Reese’s Pieces™️

1 small bag M&Ms™️

What you’ll do:

Preheat oven to 350 or whatever your brownie package directions tell ya.

Grease your spring form pan or a 13×9 should you so choose to use it instead.

Mix brownies according to package directions

Spread in pan and bake until center is firm. About 25 min.

While this is rocking, Mix the filling ingredients together until smooth. I fold the chips in last to avoid them breaking.

When brownie is done, remove from oven and spread cheesecake filling over top.

Return to oven and bake another 20 min or until the top is golden and there is only 2 inches of soft space in center.

Shut off the oven, open door a bit and let stand at least 5 hours.

After 5 hours place cake in refrigerator and cool 2 more hours.

For topping, place chocolate and PB chips in a glass bowl with the cream and microwave at 15 second intervals stirring until melted smooth. You can cover the cake in this but, I prefer to drizzle it on.

Sprinkle with candies and serve.

Watch for the “ohs” and “ahs” that will certainly transpire during consumption.

Cut cake and give away to all your favorite people to avoid gaining 10 lbs from eating a piece every time you open your refrigerator.

It should look like this in the center…

Please remember to like and share these posts and let me see yours when you make it!!
