(I made this for Jared's Farewell)
1 box fudge brownie mix
1 package peanut butter chips, 10 ounces
2 packages peanut butter cup, minature, 13 ounces
4 cups milk, 2%, cold
2 packages vanilla pudding, 5.1 ounces
1 cup peanut butter, smooth
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 whole whipped cream toppings, 8 ounce
1. Prepare brownie batter according to package directions; stir in peanut butter chips. Bake in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs (do not overbake). Cool on a wire rack; cut into 3/4-in. pieces.
2. Cut peanut butter cups in half; set aside 1/3 for garnish. In a large bowl, whisk milk and pudding mixes for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Add peanut butter and vanilla; mix well. fold in 1-1/2 cartons whipped topping.
3. Place a third of the brownie in a 5-qt. glass bowl; top with a third of the remaining peanut butter cups. Spoon a third of the pudding mixture over the top. Repeat layers twice. Cover with remaining whipped topping; garnish with reserved peanut butter cups. Refrigerate until chilled.
**This recipe makes tons, it will fill up two trifle bowls, when mixing the peanut butter, vanilla and whipped topping use a large bowl or everything won't fit. I've made a half batch before and it was plenty.**
