Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie Trifle

This is such an easy dessert and so delicious! You will want to make it for every event! It’s also so pretty and a bit fancy! It will look like you spent hours on it!! I was inspired to create this recipe from a delicious peanut butter pie my sister-in-law Angie used to make. Enjoy! 🙂

This trifle bowl is from the Pfaltzgraff Winterberry Collection

You will need:

Creamy peanut butter and powdered sugar

2 large boxes instant chocolate pudding (I believe it’s the 5.1 oz)

2 large boxes instant vanilla pudding

Milk (to make pudding) **I have used almond milk but it doesn’t set the pudding as well. But it works!

1 large 16 oz tub of Cool Whip thawed

1 Hershey chocolate bar

A Trifle bowl and a vegetable peeler

In a small bowl put about 1/2 cup of peanut butter and start adding the powdered sugar a little at a time…use a fork or a whisk. The idea here is to create a crumble. The peanut butter will soak up the powdered sugar and it will almost look like granola, (it takes a little while) This is something I have never measured lol. You can add more peanut butter or the powdered sugar. You really can’t mess this up! And if you make too much it’s so yummy by itself! Put to the side.

Prepare both the chocolate and vanilla pudding according to box directions in separate bowls.

Now the fun begins!! 🙂

You can layer this in any order you’d like. I do recommend ending with cool whip.

I like to put a layer of the cool whip, crumble, vanilla pudding, cool whip, crumble, chocolate pudding, cool whip, crumble and in that order until I hit the top. Top off with cool whip and the remaining crumble. Take your Hershey bar and using a vegetable peeler create chocolate curls all over the top. Take the remaining chocolate blocks and arrange them in the center. If you prefer you can also put the chocolate curls throughout the layers. And really you could use any of your favorite candy in this recipe. Reese’s cups would be awesome!

Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight before serving.

When serving it scoops out like pudding so I would recommend serving in little dessert cups or bowls. Eating it straight out of the trifle bowl works too!! HAHA 🙂
