Peanut Butter Brownie Trifle

20170408 PB Trifle 03

D gave me a beautiful trifle dish recently, and we made this trifle to celebrate. At its most basic, a trifle is a layered dessert that usually has some combination of cake, pudding and whipped cream. This one is extra special with peanut butter and brownies – a combination we love!

You will need:

  • 1 fudge brownie mix (13-inch x 9-inch pan size), prepared according to package directions
  • 2 packages (13 ounces each) miniature peanut butter cups
  • 4 cups cold 2% milk
  • 2 packages (5.1 ounces each) instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cartons (8 ounces each) frozen whipped topping, thawed

Then you will…

  • Cut or break brownies into 3/4-in. pieces.
  • Roughly chop the peanut butter cups; set aside 1/3 cup for garnish.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the milk and pudding mixes for 2 minutes (mixture will be thick).
  • Whisk in the peanut butter and vanilla until well mixed. Fold in the whipped topping.
  • Place a third of the brownies in a 5-qt. glass bowl; top with a third of the remaining peanut butter cups.
  • Spoon a third of the pudding mixture over the top. Repeat layers twice.
  • Garnish with reserved peanut butter cup pieces.
  • Refrigerate until chilled.
