Peanut Butter Brownie Triffle

If you are on a diet do not eat this!! It is so sweet, rich, and amazing! The recipe was on the cover of Taste of Home most REQUESTED Recipes 2014 and it definitely deserves to be! It's a cool dessert that is perfect for a party or get together, and if your friends and family like chocolate or peanut butter they will LOVE this!!

  • 1 fudge brownie mix (13 in by 9 in pan size)
  • 1 package (10 oz) peanut butter chips
  • 2 packages (13 oz each) mini peanut butter cups
  • 4 cups cold milk (2%)
  • 2 packages (5.1 oz each) instant vanilla pudding mix, I used the sugar free kind because that makes this dessert so much healthier, NOT
  • About 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 to 3 cartons (8 oz each) frozen whipped topping , THAWED
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Grease 13 by 9 inch baking pan
  • Prepare brownie batter according to package directions
  • Stir in peanut butter chips
  • Bake in greased pan for 20- 25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs 
  • Cool on a wire rack then cut into 3/4 inch pieces (I don't have a wire rack so I waited as long as I could before cutting them and putting them on my cutting board to continue cooling)
I some how lost a piece in the process of cutting them.

  • Now cut the peanut butter cups in half and set aside 1/3 cup for garnish ( If you can find any, get ones without wrappers)
  • In a large bowl, whisk the milk and pudding mixes for 2 minutes
  • Add peanut butter and vanilla, mix well

  • Fold in 1 1/2 cartoons of whipped topping

  • Place a third of the brownies in a 5 quart glass bowl

  • Top with a third of the remaining peanut butter cups

  • Spoon a third of the pudding mixture over the top
  • Repeat layers twice
  • Cover with remaining whipped topping
  • Garnish with reserved peanut butter cups

  • Refrigerate until chilled
  • ENJOY!!
