Do you like chocolate and peanut butter? This dessert is for that chocoholic.... My daughter requested it for her birthday instead of cake. It looks very rich, but actually isn't. The peanut butter taste is mellowed by whipped topping and pudding. This post is one of my most requested. If you love chocolate and you love peanut butter cups, this dessert is for you. Your family will love it!
1 9X13 pan of brownies, cut into 1" pieces
5.1 oz. box instant vanilla pudding mix
3 C. milk
1/2 C. creamy peanut butter
2 tsp. vanilla
8 oz. container thawed whipped topping (Cool Whip), divided
20 peanut butter cups, divided, crumble 12, use remaining for decoration on top
(buy in a 10 pack...not the bite sized)
- 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 1/2 of the brownies, 1/2 of the crumbled peanut butter cups, 1/2 of the pudding mixture. Repeat.
- Top with cool whip and peanut butter cups. (Or shaved chocolate curls or chocolate chips, like I did.
- Chill until serving.
*Suggestion...I think you could also use Heath bars instead of peanut butter cups. It would add crunch to the dessert.
