Peanut Butter Cup Trifle

I just can't seem to get enough of trifles!

Have you noticed??

They're just such a perfect summer dessert - 
they're so fast & no baking or cooking is required if you buy a pre made cake. 
Or brownies in this case!

I made this trifle in place of a birthday cake for my husband's birthday barbecue a couple weeks ago. 
It was a huge hit!

Layers of chocolate custard, rich fudge brownies, & of course, Reece's peanut butter cups come together to make a sweet success.

Peanut Butter Cup Trifle {Print Recipe}
serves 10-12

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cup cold water
1 package chocolate pudding mix
2 cups whipping cream, whipped, but not sweetened (you could use Cool Whip too)
1 - 8x8" pan of brownies (pre made or try this recipe if you want to make your own), cut into bite sized pieces
36 regular sized Reece's Peanut Butter Cups, chopped **See note below**

Combine sweetened condensed milk & water. Stir in pudding mix. Chill for 20 minutes. Fold in the whipped cream. 

Put about a cup of the pudding mix into the bottom of a trifle bowl. Start layering: Pudding, brownie, peanut butter cups. Repeat. Top it all off with some more peanut butter cups, because that's just awesome.

Refrigerate until you're ready to serve it.

**Instead of buying a bunch of regular candy bar packages of the peanut butter cups, I found little flats of 12 individually packaged "snack packs". Three of those babies ($2 each at Wal-Mart!) & this ingredient is taken care of!
