Betty demonstrates how to make a Reese’s Cup Brownie Cheesecake. This is a dramatic and delicious dessert. This was adapted from a Midwest Living magazine recipe from 2013. It uses Betty’s brownie recipe, rather than a boxed brownie mix.

Reese’s Cups

2 sticks butter

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate

2 cups sugar

2 eggs, well-beaten

1 1/3 cups self-rising flour

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3/4 cup hot fudge ice cream topping, warmed

(2) 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened

1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter

14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk

1 1/2 cups whipping cream

2 tablespoons sugar (This is the same as icing sugar or confectioner’s sugar.)

6 Reese’s peanut butter cups, chopped in quarters

Melt butter along with unsweetened chocolate in a saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally. Cool to room temperature. To the melted mixture add sugar, eggs, self-rising flour, and vanilla extract. Mix all together and pour into a 9-inch by 13-inch by 2-inch dish. Bake at 350 degrees (F) 20 to 25 minutes. Brownies will be done when a toothpick placed in the center comes out clean. Remove cooked brownies from the oven and cool to room temperature in baking dish on cooling rack. Cut into 16 squares. Using about 3/4 of the squares, press brownies into the bottom of a 9-inch x 3-inch springform pan, forming an even crust. Spread with the hot fudge ice cream topping; set aside. Crumble remaining 1/4 of the brownies; set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine cream cheese and peanut but-ter. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until just combined. Add sweet-ened condensed milk. Beat until just combined. In a medium bowl, beat whipping cream until soft peaks form. Add sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form. Re-serve 1/2 cup of the whipped cream mixture. Fold remaining whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture. Spread one-half of the cream cheese mixture over the hot fudge topping in pan. Sprinkle with one-half of the reserved brownie crumbles. Spread remaining cream cheese mixture over the brownies. Top with the reserved 1/2 cup whipping cream. Sprinkle remaining brownie crumbles and chopped pea- cups. Cover with plastic wrap and chill 4 to 24 hours. Cut into wedges and serve cold. I hope you enjoy this dessert! –Betty 🙂

    Oh my gosh! What an incredible cheesecake! I suggest that a person bank
    their calories and eat this cheesecake for supper ? in the article written
    about you, it said you most often eat plain tuna for lunch. Was it an egg
    you have for breakfast? No carbs, high protein…..Then eat the cheesecake
    for supper. I’m going to be making this very soon. Relish ?

  29. rabaile1 on January 8, 2016: (Reply)

    Do you mind? I’m STARVING — lol! As for anyone who might think this is too
    rich, there’s a simple solution to that problem: Go ahead and make it
    anyway, then give it to us — ha! I even bought a spring-form pan, because
    I’d seen you use them before. This is so fancy, I’m not sure if I have the
    guts to make this yet, but I can definitely work my way up to it — ha!
    Thanks for another winning recipe, Annette

    Betty, what kind of measuring cup (you use for the peanut butter) is that
    called? And where would you suggest I purchase one?

  32. Rebekah Marks on January 8, 2016: (Reply)

    Betty, do you think that if I replaced homemade chocolate ganache for the
    hot fudge topping that it would make a difference either way in taste or

    The dessert looks amazing!

    have a lot of skill when making both traditional and creative ideas. I am
    amazed at how it turned out. I have a couple questions: how long have you

    Please let me know. See ya soon, Betty. Stay awesome and stay simple. :-)

    Betty, congrats for this amazing cake! It looks delicious and pretty. I
    think like you, although you have a healthy nutrition, always it´s fine to
    have on hand something sweet , fresh and homemade. The balance is the key.
    I would love to take a bit of your Reese’s Cup Brownie Cheesecake.
