PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE BROWNIE TRIFLE

I have one very distinct memory of the end of summer. We were at a neighbors house – specifically in their pool – which was awesome because we didn’t have a pool and I’d jump at any chance to swim.

PEANUT BUTTER FUDGE BROWNIE TRIFLE

INGREDIENTS:
  1. 1 batch of your favorite brownies, boxed or from scratch, cooled and cut into cubes
  2. 1 large box (5-ounce) of instant chocolate pudding, prepared and chilled (this will most likely call for 3 cups of milk, nothing else)
  3. 1 bag of peanut butter cups, chopped (I used Dove chocolate peanut butter Promises)
  4. 2 cups heavy cream
  5. 3-4 tablespoons granulated sugar, depending on your desired level of sweetness
  6. 1 cup of creamy peanut butter
  7. 1 cup of powdered sugar
  8. 2 tablespoons milk
  9. 8 ounces of whipped cream cheese, at room temperature

DIRECTIONS:
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer (or using a hand mixer), beat heavy cream and sugar on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form. Transfer the whipped cream to an separate bowl and stick in the fridge until ready to use. I did not even clean the bowl of my electric mixer and just began mixing the peanut butter mixture.
