You can't tell that this is a trifle by looking at the picture... sorry! We had company over for a BBQ and I made this for dessert. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture beforehand and once it was time for dessert, I didn't want to make everyone wait while I got a good picture. So... here is the top. You'll just have to trust me that there are layers below! :)
You can't go wrong with the peanut butter/chocolate combination... at least not in my book! This trifle is made with layers of peanut butter chip brownies, peanut butter pudding, and peanut butter cups. So rich and so delicious!
*Note... I forgot the whipped cream but it works either way!
