Wanted to make dessert the other night, so I looked in the fridge to see what I had. This is what I came up with. Really easy and quick to make. The hardest part is letting it cool! =]

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Oh yum! From the creaminess of the cheesecake, to the chocolate chip layer and the brownies, I loved every bite of this cake. This will be a great one for anyone who loves peanut butter and chocolate.

Ingredients

CRUST

refrigerated pie crust, room temperature

BROWNIE

1
any brownie box mix (I used Betty Crocker Supreme and saved the chocolate syrup for the topping)

CHEESECAKE FILLING

8 oz
cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 c
confectioners sugar
3/4 c
peanut butter
1/2 c
milk
1
egg
1 tsp
vanilla extract

TOPPING

chocolate syrup
semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
whatever sounds good to you(i.e. peanuts, coconut, etc.)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350. Press room temperature pie crust into 9" pie pan. Set aside.
2
Cream milk and cream cheese with electric mixer on lower speed until smooth, add confectioner's sugar, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla. Mix until blended.
3
Mix brownies as directed on box.
4
Pour half of the brownie mix into prepared pie crust.
5
Next, spoon all of cream cheese mixture on top on brownie layer.
6
Pour the rest of the brownie mixture on top. Smooth over with rubber spatula.
7
Cover the edges of pie with aluminum foil to prevent crust from over browning. Bake 35-40 minutes.
8
After 35-40 minutes, remove foil from pie and bake an additional 10-15 minutes. (pie may crack on top, this is okay)
9
Remove pie from oven and sprinkle with mini chips. Let pie cool completely (3 hours on the counter, hour and a half in the fridge). After pie is cool, drizzle with chocolate syrup. Slice and enjoy. Watch out! It's decadent.
