1 pkg. (1lb 5.5oz) chocolate brownie mix
1 pkg. (5.1oz) vanilla instant pudding mix
3 cups milk
½ cup creamy peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed & divided
12 oz. peanut butter cups, crumbled
6-8 mini peanut butter cups, whole, for garnish if desired
In mixing bowl, combine brownie mix, egg, water and oil according to package directions. Pour into a 9x13 baking pan and bake as directed. Cool, then cut into 1" cubes.
Combine pudding mix with milk and beat with mixer at low speed until thickened, about 2 minutes.
To assemble dessert: in a large trifle bowl (or other bowl) layer half of the cut brownies, followed by half of the cut candies and half of the peanut butter pudding mixture. Repeat layers.
|This is how it looks after layering brownie and candy, before the peanut pudding mixture is added.|
Top with remaining whipped topping and garnish with peanut butter cups. Chill in refrigerator for several hours or overnight. Serves 12.
