Servings 8 people
- 1 package brownie mix 8x8 inch pan size
- 3 8-ounce packages cream cheese softened
- 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- 10 ounce bag peanut butter chips melted
- 4 eggs

Grease a 9-inch springform pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare brownie mix according to directions on the box. Pour batter into pan and bake for 20 minutes and cool.
Decrease oven temperature to 325 degrees F. In a clean bowl beat cream cheese until fluffy. Slowly add milk and beat well.
Add melted peanut butter chips, eggs and vanilla. Mix very well. Pour over brownie. Place springform pan in another larger pan with 1 inch of hot water to help prevent the brownie from burning. Bake 50 to 60 minutes.
Remove cheesecake from oven and chill about an hour before removing the springform pan.
Melt chips and shortening and stir until smooth. Pour mixture over the top and sides of the cheesecake and chill for 3 hours. Garnish with shaved chocolate and strawberries.
