For Those Last Minute Potlucks

This Chocolate Fudge Peanut Butter Trifle by A Step in the Journey seems like it would be a great quick and easy dessert to take to a summertime potluck.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Trifle
Serves 15
Simple, quick, and delicious Chocolate Peanut Butter Trifle

  • Brownies (box or from scratch...usually need eggs, oil, and water)
  • 1 large tub of cool whip
  • 1 large box of Jello chocolate instant pudding (3 cups of milk)
  • 1 bag of Reese's peanut butter cups
  • 1 cup of peanut butter
  • 8 oz. of cream cheese
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp. of milk
  • 1
    Before we can layer our trifle there is some prep work that must be done...
  • 2
    Prepare brownies and chocolate pudding according to package instructions, set aside
  • 3
    Set cream cheese out. It needs to be at room temperature
  • 4
    In a food processor chop your opened Reese's cups, set aside
  • 5
    Once the cream cheese is a room temperature use a hand mixer to whip. Then fold in 1 cup of peanut butter. Once well combined add 1 cup of powdered sugar and 2 tbsp of milk. Continue to whip until "fluffy"
  • 6
    Now it's time to LAYER! You can go in any order you would like, my suggestion: broken up brownies, peanut butter fluff, chocolate pudding, cool whip, chopped Reese's...then REPEAT.
  • 7
  • If not serving immediately, leave in the refrigerator to chill.
