Peanut Butter Brownie Trifle

I’ve got a delightful treat for you today! After years of creating delicious recipes, I’ve whipped up a show-stopping dessert that will leave your taste buds dancing: Peanut Butter Brownie Trifle! This scrumptious dessert is perfect for a cozy night in or a special celebration. So, let’s dive into the step-by-step guide on how to make this heavenly delight!

Can I use a different type of brownie mix or recipe for the trifle?

Absolutely! Feel free to use your favorite brownie recipe or mix. The beauty of this dessert is its versatility, so go ahead and get creative! Just make sure your brownies are fully cooled and cut into bite-sized pieces before assembling the trifle.

Is there a substitute for the whipped topping?

Absolutely! If homemade whipped cream is more your style, simply combine 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream with 1/4 cup of powdered sugar and beat until you achieve stiff peaks. Feel free to use this homemade version as a substitute for the store-bought whipped topping.

Can I make this trifle ahead of time?

Great question! Yes, you can prepare this trifle a day in advance. Just cover it and store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve. However, I would suggest adding the final layer of whipped topping and chopped peanut butter cups just before serving to maintain that fresh, picture-perfect look.

Can I use a different type of candy or chocolate in the trifle?

Of course! Feel free to mix and match with your favorite candies or chocolates. Snickers, Milky Way, or even M&Ms would make delicious alternatives. Just remember to chop them into smaller pieces for easy layering and eating.


  • 1 batch of brownies (homemade or store-bought mix)
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) of prepared vanilla pudding
  • 1/2 cup (4 ounces) creamy peanut butter
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 of a carton (12 ounces) whipped topping
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, chopped


  1. First, bake your favorite brownies according to the recipe or store-bought mix instructions. Let them cool completely and then cut them into bite-sized pieces.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the prepared vanilla pudding, creamy peanut butter, and vanilla extract. Stir until smooth and well-blended.
  3. Gently fold in 3/4 of the whipped topping into the peanut butter-pudding mixture, making sure not to overmix.
