Died and Gone to Heaven Reese's Trifle

Happy Labor Day everyone! I hope you are enjoying a day off of work, or at least a lest hectic day because everyone else is off...

I made this trifle a while ago for a potluck BBQ party and it was a HUGE hit! Everyone came up to me and asked me about it and raved about how delicious it was. The guys in the corner were heard saying "It has brownies AND candy!" ha. I made it in a hurry and did not take any photos, so all I have is this horrible iphone photo. It really does not do it justice. It is VERY rich and will disappear fast at the next BBQ you go to. I cannot take credit for this recipe. I was inspired by Died and Gone to Heaven as well as this Peanut Butter Cup Trifle. I mixed the two and came up with this recipe!

I hope you make it soon!

Died and Gone to Heaven Reese's Trifle 

For the brownies:
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt

For the trifle:
  • 1 3.9 oz (or 5.1 oz if you can find it) box french vanilla pudding
  • 3 cups cold milk
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 12 oz cool whip (1 1/2 containers), thawed
  • 20 full-size peanut butter cups crumbled
  • 2 heath bars (or a bunch of mini-sized bars)

For the brownies:

Pre-heat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time until blended. Add vanilla, salt, cocoa and flour until just-blended. Do not over-beat. Pour into greased 13x9 pan and bake 20-25 minutes until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean. Cool completely. These are good to make the day/night before.

For the trifle:

In a large bowl, whisk together milk and pudding mixture until thickened. Add vanilla and peanut butter and whisk until smooth. Gently fold in 1/2-1 container of cool whip.

Layer trifle in this order:
  • 1/2 brownies
  • 1/2 peanut butter cups
  • 1/2 pudding
  • 1/2 remaining cool whip
Repeat and top with remaining cool whip and crushed heath bar. Chill at least 4 hours or overnight, covered with plastic wrap.

  1. Everything about this looks and sounds delicious! I love to make trifles when I have big get-togethers with my family. The bowl is empty within a few minutes. Thanks for sharing on Sweet Indulgences Sunday.
