How to make a Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Trifle:

The complete, printable recipe is at the end of this post.

  1. In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to whip the cream until it begins to thicken slightly. Add the cream cheese, peanut butter and vanilla and continue to whip the cream to very soft peaks- when you draw the beaters through the cream, it will begin to take shape. Don’t over-beat or it will be too thick.
  2. In a glass trifle dish or tall glass bowl, place a third of the brownie pieces on the bottom and up the sides of the dish. Spoon ⅓ of the whipped cream on top of the brownies, spreading it to the edges. Sprinkle some of the peanut butter cups on top of the whipped cream. Repeat two more layers, then garnish the trifle with larger peanut butter cups.
