Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Trifle {RECIPE}

trifle

When I posted this trifle picture to Instagram a couple weekends ago, people were asking like crazy for the recipe. As were the people that got to eat it at the neighborhood block party I brought it to. It's a bunch of delicious ingredients, layered into a trifle to equal perfection. The ingredient that is to thank the most for this amazing dish? 
COOL WHIP Whipped Topping.

Trifle bowls and I have a bit of a history. I suddenly wanted one so bad a couple years ago, because what doesn't look more gorgeous in trifle form? I searched everywhere. My mom searched everywhere. Nothing was quite right. Until we went into Walmart one day and BAM! The trifle bowl that was meant to be mine was a $10 beauty with a silver rim. 

Whoa, back to the dish. My sister-in-law made it for a family dinner and I couldn't wait for a chance to make it myself. I do highly recommend buying the unwrapped Reeses...and if your store is out like mine was, drive somewhere else. Trust me! 

The recipe is simple, really.

1 package of Brownie Mix
1 family size bag of Reeses Peanut Butter Cups
1 large package Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
2 cups cold Milk
3/4 cup Creamy Peanut Butter
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 cartons of COOL WHIP, thawed

Cook brownies according to package directions. 
Cool completely, then cut into cubes. 
Cut the Reeses into halves, setting aside 1/2 cup to use as garnish. 
Mix instant pudding and cold milk with a hand mixer or wisk. (The mixture will be thick.) Add in vanilla and peanut butter and mix well. Fold in 1.5 cartons of the COOL WHIP, reserving the other half to top your trifle.

Time to layer it up! 
Put 1/3 of the brownie cubes into a trifle dish, followed by 1/3 of the peanut butter cups, then 1/3 of the COOL WHIP mixture. Repeat layers. Top your beautiful trifle with the reserved COOL WHIP, then garnish with the reserved peanut butter cups.

Make sure you are serving this to people you want to impress. Because it will. And save yourself some time and write out some recipe cards!

Now, if you're wanting to eat COOL WHIP as an everyday dessert, I'd say go for it! When Cooper sees this blue carton, he get excited.

He ask for dessert after dinner every night. The one he usually gets in the summertime, is this:

Or like tonight, frozen blueberries topped with COOL WHIP. And Mommy just might partake with him.
