Reeses Peanut Butter Trifle Dessert

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.  
Enjoy!

I'm giving both of these blogs credit because I first found it on "The Girl Who Ate Everything" blog, but she mentions "The Sister's CafĂ©" blog also.  I'm with them... it's a great dessert!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Trifle Dessert
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 or chocolate chips, like I did.) Chill until serving.

    1. Definitely.... this dessert lasts a few days. It is so yummy. You would think that it would be really rich, but it is pretty light.

  2. Have you tried using chocolate pudding instead of the vanilla?

  3. No.....the vanilla tones down the peanut butter. It makes it really creamy.
