Step One: Make the brownies.

  • Prepare brownie mix according to package directions, using the 13x9x2-inch pan option.
  • Once they cool completely, cut them into bars.
  • Using about 3/4 of the bars, press brownies into the bottom of a 9x3-inch springform pan, forming an even crust.
  • Spread with (warmed) 3/4 cup hot fudge-flavored ice cream topping; set aside.
  • In a small bowl, crumble remaining 1/4 of the brownies; set aside.

(You can make this while the brownies bake!)

  • In a large mixing bowl:
    • Combine 2 (8 oz.) packages of cream cheese and 1 ½ cups of peanut butter
    • Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined
    • Add 1 (14 oz.) can of sweetened condensed milk and beat until combined
  • In a medium bowl:
    • Beat 1 ½ cups whipping cream until soft peaks form.
    • Add 2 tbsp powdered sugar, beat until stiff peaks form.
  • Reserve ½ cup of the whipped cream mixture.
  • Fold remaining ½ cup of whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.

 

Step Three: Layer the deliciousness.

  • Spread half of the cream cheese mixture over the hot fudge topping in pan.
  • Sprinkle half of the reserved brownie crumbles.
  • Spread remaining cream cheese mixture over the brownies.
  • Top with the reserved ½ cup whipping cream.
  • Sprinkle remaining brownie crumbles and chopped peanut butter cups.
  • Drizzle with chocolate syrup.
  • Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours.
  • Be blessed.
