I brought this yummy trifle to a baby shower last night. Who can resist a scrumptious trifle with layers of rich chocolaty brownies, smooth pudding, and crumbled peanut butter cups?? Not I for one! And neither can anyone else, since whenever I make this it is gone in a flash. :) This delicious trifle is pretty rich, so I always save it for a party with a crowd. Mmmmmm! Thanks goes to Kaily who shared this recipe that I’ve now been enjoying for a few years!
9×13 pan of brownies, cut into 1 inch pieces
5.1 oz box instant vanilla pudding mix
3 cups milk
½ cup creamy peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla
8 oz container thawed whipped topping (Cool Whip), divided
20 peanut butter cups, crumbled (buy in a 10-pack. Not the bite-sized)
6-8 peanut butter cups to garnish.
Combine pudding and milk. Beat for 2 minutes. Add peanut butter and vanilla, beat until smooth. Gently fold in 2 cups cool whip.
Layer in trifle dish ½ the brownies, ½ the crumbled peanut butter cups, ½ the pudding mixture. Repeat. Top with cool whip and peanut butter cups. (Or shaved chocolate curls, as I did.) Chill until serving.
