Peanut Butter Chocolate Trifle Recipe

Throughout this pregnancy so many people have asked if I have had any cravings. I haven't had any crazy ones but I've definitely noticed my sweet tooth increasing...surprisingly, I usually crave candy more than chocolate...but this one day in particular, I was craving the heavenly combination of chocolate and peanut I decided to make this trifle. 

Peanut Butter Chocolate Trifle

Now just warning you, this is a crazy rich dessert. I used brownies but next time, I would definitely use a lighter chocolate cake instead.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Trifle Recipe



  • 1 batch of chocolate cake from a box (don't bother making from scratch, but do if you really really want to), cooled and cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 large box of chocolate pudding
  • 1 bag of mini peanut butter cups, coarsely chopped
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 3-4 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • 1 brick of cream cheese at room temperature


  1. Beat heavy cream and regular sugar in an electric mixer on medium high until stiff peaks form. Transfer the whip cream to another bowl and put in the fridge.
  2. Beat peanut butter and cream cheese in the electric mixer on medium until the mixture is creamy. Add in the icing sugar and mix until combined. Add in the milk.
  3. Add 1 cup of the whipping cream to the peanut butter mixture and mix until combined.
  4. Grab your dish and begin to assemble the trifle. Clear dishes are obviously better but use what you have! I assembled it in this order: chocolate cake, peanut butter, peanut butter cups, chocolate pudding, whip cream and then repeat. Make sure you save some peanut butter cups for the top layer!
  5. Enjoy!
