To make the ganache, add the chocolate chips to a glass or other heat safe bowl. Heat the heavy cream in a small pot over low heat until just below simmering. Pour over the chocolate chips. Let sit for 1 to 2 minutes, then stir with a rubber spatula until smooth. Let cool until room temperature, then spread gently over the prepared peanut butter filling. Chill until set, about 20 minutes.
