Ingredients:

 

  • 1 package of Fudge Brownie Mix (and ingredients required to make the brownies, usually oil, water, and eggs)
  • 2 packages of Miniature Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
  • 4 cups of cold 2% Milk
  • 2 packages of instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup of creamy Peanut Butter
  • 4 tsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 2 cans (8-oz each) of thawed Cool Whip

 

Preparation:

 

Step 1: Bake the Brownies
Prepare the fudge brownie mix according to the package instructions. Pour the batter into a greased baking pan and bake as directed. Once baked, allow the brownies to cool completely. After cooling, cut the brownies into bite-sized cubes.

Step 2: Prepare the Pudding Mixture
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the 4 cups of cold milk and 2 packages of instant vanilla pudding mix. Add 1 cup of creamy peanut butter and the 4 tsp of vanilla extract to the pudding mixture. Whisk everything together until well combined and smooth.

Step 3: Chop the Reese’s Miniatures
Unwrap the miniature Reese’s peanut butter cups and chop them into smaller pieces. Reserve some for topping the dessert later.

Step 4: Layer the Dessert
In a large bowl or trifle dish, start layering the dessert. Begin with a layer of brownie cubes at the bottom. Pour a layer of the peanut butter pudding mixture over the brownies. Add a layer of chopped Reese’s miniatures. Spread a layer of thawed Cool Whip over the top.

Step 5: Repeat the Layers
Repeat the layering process (brownies, pudding, Reese’s, Cool Whip) until all ingredients are used, ending with a layer of Cool Whip.

Step 6: Garnish and Chill
Garnish the top layer with the reserved chopped Reese’s miniatures. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the dessert for at least 2 hours to allow the flavors to meld and the dessert to set.

Step 7: Serve
Once chilled, serve the dessert in bowls. Enjoy the layers of chocolatey, peanut buttery goodness in every spoonful!

 

Cooking Note:

  • Ensure the brownies are completely cool before assembling the dessert to prevent the layers from becoming soggy.
