In a separate medium bowl, whip the heavy cream until firm peaks begin to form. Add the powdered sugar about half way through the mixing process. Once formed, set aside 1/2 cup of the whipped cream for later use. Fold the rest of the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.Spread half of the cream cheese mixture over the hot fudge topping. Sprinkle half of the remaining brownie bars on top of the first cream cheese layer. Spread the remaining cream cheese mixture on top of the crumbled brownie pieces. Top with the half cup of whipped cream that was reserved earlier. Sprinkle with the rest of the brownie chunks, Reese's Cups, and drizzle with hot fudge topping. Cover and chill for 4 to 24 hours.
