Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare brownie batter according to package directions; stir in peanut butter chips.

Cover with remaining whipped topping; garnish with reserved peanut butter cups. Refrigerate until chilled. Yield: 20 servings (1 cup each).

I made this for a dear friend of mine who is a Reese's lover. He absolutely loved it. I made four individual trifles. They presented beautifully; each one with its own unique design. As many have said, it is very rich, but absolutely scrumptious! I followed the recipe to a "T" and wouldn't change one thing...a definite crowd pleaser!

MYGIRLSX2 - You can also use a punch bowl. I've seen many "punch bowl cake" recipes that are essentially trifle in a punch bowl.

My kids live trifles and this is one of their favorites. I used a brownie mix that had peanut butter chips and used the little mini Reese's peanut butter cups so I didn't have to unwrap the peanut butter cups
