In a large, microwave-safe bowl, combine the chocolate chips and heavy whipping cream. Microwave for 1 minute, remove the bowl and whisk, then microwave again for 30 seconds and whisk well. Continue microwaving for 30 seconds until the mixture becomes this and chocolatey.
Whisk in the vanilla. In another bowl, use an electric beater to mix together the cream cheese, peanut butter, and sugar until well mixed.
Add 8 ounces of whipped topping and beat until light and fluffy.
Immediately layer all ingredients in four small plastic cups in this order: A layer of chocolate, peanut butter cheesecake layer, a handful of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, a layer of chocolate. Top with a dollop of whipped topping.
