Peanut butter Trifle

OH my word, You will make so much of this your eyes will pop... So basically I found the recipe over on Taste of home and tweeked it a bit to match what I wanted.. so here goes... Instead of Peanut butter cups you could always add chocolate chip cookies.

1 pack Fudge brownie mix
1 package of peanut butter chips
1 package of mini peanut butter cups
4 cups cold milk ( chocolate milk option )
2 packages instant vanilla pudding.. ( i hate instant pudding to me worth the wait to use cook pudding)
1 cup creamy peanut butter... ( how about hazel nut spread next time?)
4 Teaspoons vanilla
2 cartons of frozen whipped topping, thawed..

prepare brownie batter, according to package, cut down on calories, instead of oil use plain yogart or apple sauce bake in 13 in x 9 in pan at 350 for 20-25 mins

cool. cut into pieces

cut peanut butter cups in half, and then half again. set aside some for garnish. In LARGE bowl whisk milk and pudding ( or prepare according to package, and set aside to cool) ADD peanut butter and vanilla, mix well, fold in 1  1/2 carton of whipped topping.

Place 1/3 of brownies in glass bowl ( trifle bowl or large punch bowl) we used a punch bowl. Spoon a third of pudding mix over top of that and repeat. Cover with remaining topping, drizzle with chocolate sauce.... and Garnish. SEVER refrigerated.

this is NOT low cal about 700 calories are in 1 cup of it. I use skim milk so mine probably only has 450 calories. But it is not intended for you to eat a lot of because it is VERY Sweet.
