My family is big on trifle. We have it at most get togethers and have tried a lot of different variations (peppermint, candy bar, fruit, cherry pie filling, oreo, etc…). We love our trifle!
So when I came across this Peanut Butter Fudge Brownie trifle on www.howsweeteats.com I was shocked that I had never seen this kind before! I couldn’t wait to try it! So I got all the ingredients and planned on making it for our next family pot lock, but as it turns out two other people were already bringing dessert. Bummer!
I ended up just making it for myself! That’s right… don’t judge! I wanted it, so I made it! Ha! Besides, I have three half monkey – half boy children at home that are always willing to gobble up desserts!
So this trifle was awesome. My favorite variation of trifle thus far. I think it was the peanut butter layer that did it for me… well that and the entire top layer of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups! So yummy!
PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE BROWNIE TRIFLE
Brownies layer (any kind you like)
Whip cream layer
Peanut Butter layer
Chocolate pudding layer (I used one box of instant pudding mix)
1 Bag Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
***Cut your brownies into cubes and put half of them along the bottom of your trifle dish. After this you just put the different layers on in any order you like and then repeat. Then top with sliced Reeses Peanut Butter Cups! It’s so pretty at the end you will want to dig right in and start eating!
So here is the how-to on the layers:
Whip Cream Layer
2 cups Heavy Cream
3-4 Tb granulated sugar
*Beat heavy cream and sugar together on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. Stick bowl in the fridge until you are ready to put in trifle dish
Peanut Butter Layer
1 cup creamy peanut butter
8oz of whipped cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tb milk
*Beat peanut butter and cream cheese together until creamy. Add powdered sugar and mix well. Add 2 Tb of milk. Take 1 cup of your whip cream mixture from the fridge and fold it into the peanut butter mixture until just combined.
Now you are ready to layer your ingredients in your trifle dish!
