This is one of the dishes that E entered into the Recipe contest and she won first place!

1 Devil’s food cake mix
1 egg
1 stick softened butter

(2) 8 oz softened cream cheese
2 eggs
2/3 Cup sugar
10 regular size Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, cut into little pieces
1 Cup semi sweet chocolate chips
4 Tablespoons heavy cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 inch baking dish with tin foil. Spray with non stick cooking spray.

Crust: mix cake mix, one egg and butter together then press into baking dish.

Filling: mix cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Stir in two eggs until well combined. Pour over cake layer and sprinkle peanut butter cups.

Bake for 30-40 minutes or until cheesecake is cooked thoroughly. Remove and let cool completely.

Carefully lift bars out of dish using ends of foil.

Topping: melt chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals until melted through. Stir in heavy cream and stir until glossy smooth. Spread chocolate over cheesecake layer, cut into squares and serve.

*We melted a tablespoon of peanut butter in the microwave and drizzled it over the bars.
