Servings around 18
- 1 package brownie mix
- ½ cup hot fudge sauce, warmed (ice-cream flavored)
- 8 – ounce cream cheese, softened
- 1 ½ cups peanut butter
- 1 can (14 – ounce) condensed milk
- 1 ½ cups heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar
- 2 tablespoons chocolate-flavored syrup (optional)
- Basic cream cheese frosting (optional)
- According to the package directions, prepare the brownie mixture. Cool on a wire rack. Then, remove and cut the brownies into bars.
- Using around 3/4 of the bars, form an even crust by pressing them into the bottom of a 9 by 3-in. springform pan. Then, apply the fudge ice cream topping over the crust; leave aside. Next, crumble the remaining brownies; leave aside.
- Using an electric mixer, on medium speed, beat cream cheese and peanut butter. Pour sweetened condensed milk. Whisk until combined.
- In another bowl, whisk heavy cream until soft peaks form. Apply confectioners’ sugar. Whip until stiff peaks form and reserve 1/2 cup of the cream mix. Place remaining cream into the cream cheese batter.
- Spread ½ of the cream cheese batter over the hot fudge sauce in the springform pan. Apply ½ of the brownie crumbles. Spread remaining cream cheese batter over the brownies. Place the reserved 1/2 cup whipped cream. Apply remaining brownie crumbles.
- To decorate, drizzle with chocolate syrup or spread basic cream cheese frosting (or some other frosting of your choice) Cover and chill for about 4 hours (or preferably overnight). Slice and serve.
