Peanut Butter Fudge Brownie Trifle! Delish!

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!

Loaded with Reeses Peanut Butter cups! Awesome!!!!

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!

      Yes. Mine tasted even better the next day as the pudding was absorbed more into the brownie.

    How much does one serving make? It’s hard to tell from the picture if the bowl is small or large.

      This recipe serves A LOT. It is a large sized trifle dish. It could easily serve 10 people.

    I just made this dessert for work tonight and, of course, I forgot the brownies! But I improvised and just made this a resse dessert and it is so good. I don’t know if it will make it to work, my husband and I cannot keep our spoons out of it! Instead of making a truffle I just mixed everything together, covered in a thin layer of whipped cream and reese minis. While I was mixing I was tasting and the pb mix you have along with the choc. pudding would make an amazing reese pie. Just thought I would toss that idea out there. Thanks for an amazing receipe that I will def be making again.

      Yummy! That does sound good! Maybe we should try that for a thanksgiving pie this year. I like your thinking!

    what is the frozen cream?is it just heavy cream container that is frozen?


    • Jamie Hinckley

      Jun 12, 2013 at 9:25 pm

      The cream is 2 cups of heavy cream with 3-4 TB of sugar. Beat it together until it is thick and peaks form, then chill in the fridge until you are ready to mix in your trifle. You can always just use regular cool whip from the grocery store for this step as well.

    Wowzers, this PB trifle is to die for!!! It’s so good that it won the dessert contest at my annual work party! I love the peanut butter/cream cheese layer, it’s not overly sweet which balances out the sweetness of the other layers; all of them together is the bomb! Thanks for the great recipe, it literally is a “winner”!

    Do I make the chocolate pudding layer with the directions on the box? And also does the pudding have to chill for a few hrs before I layer it?


    • Jamie Hinckley

      Apr 18, 2014 at 2:57 pm

      Yes, just follow the directions on the box. If you buy the instant pudding like I did you only have to chill it for 5 minutes after mixing. The regular pudding will take 1 to 2 hours I think.
