- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 2 cups confectioner's sugar
- cocoa powder
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
- Place a baking sheet (parchment paper) in a buttered 8-inch pan so it covers the bottom and 2 sides (to facilitate the brownie removal). Butter the parchment paper or spray with baking spray and set aside.
- In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the wire attachment, beat the eggs at medium speed until fluffy and light yellow, add the sugar and beat until combined. Add remaining ingredients, and mix to combine.
- Pour half of the batter into the pan and top with Reese's eggs, pour the remaining batter.

Remove from oven and set aside to cool without removing the brownie from the pan. Once cooled down completely start on the mousse.
Peanut Butter Mousse:
- Chill a mixing bowl in the refrigerator or freezer for at least 15-20 minutes.
- Remove bowl from refrigerator and using a mixer fitted with the wire attachment beat 1 cup of heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
- In a separate bowl, whisk on medium speed cream cheese, peanut butter and confectioner's sugar, reduce speed to low and add 1/2 cup of heavy cream, mix on medium low speed until fully combined. Stop to crape the sides of the bowl with a spatula.
- Gently, using a spatula, manually fold in the whipped cream into the peanut butter mixture. Gently still until well blended.
