Peanut Butter Trifle

Are there some days you are just in the mood for chocolate and peanut butter?  If so, this trifle might be just the thing for you.  Layers of chewy brownies, fluffy peanut butter cream, crunchy peanuts and peanut butter cups - this was really a hit with my family!




Peanut Butter Trifle

 

  • 1 9x13 pan of baked brownies (box or homemade - it doesn't matter), with peanut butter chips baked in (not required but extra tasty)
  • 2 packages mini peanut butter cups
  • 1/2 to 1 cup peanuts
  • 2 cups cold 2% milk
  • 2 small packages instant vanilla pudding
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 8 ounce carton frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • chocolate sauce

 Cut cooled brownies into 3/4 inch pieces.  Combine milk and pudding mix and whisk for about two minutes or until thickened.  Stir in peanut butter and vanilla, mix well.  Fold in whipped topping.  To assemble, drizzle some chocolate down the sides of the trifle dish for decoration.  Next, place a third of the brownies in a trifle dish or glass bowl, top with 1/3 mini peanut butter cups.  Sprinkle with 1/3 of the peanuts.  Spoon a third of the pudding mixture over top.  Repeat layers twice.  Garnish with reserved peanut butter cups.  Refrigerate until chilled.
