A chocolate peanut butter trifle is easy to make, feeds a crowd and you’ll hardly have any leftovers!
A gazillion years ago I began to bake on my own. I loved it so much that I would make sweets on a Monday night and take them to my sister’s basketball game on Tuesday night. I’d cart my mom’s Tupperware product into the game and distribute my previous night’s baking specialty to all of the parents in the stand.
This routine of “feeding the crowd” went on the entire season. Sometimes I’d show up with cookie bars, sometimes just rice krispie treats, but either way, I was in the kitchen, baking and I was happy.
Most of my recipes started out as “box” mixes, but eventually I moved onto making banana bread and cookies from scratch. This Chocolate Peanut Butter Trifle is one of those “easy box recipes” and I’m not ashamed to share it with anyone because it’s so good.
How to make a chocolate peanut butter trifle
The feature of this recipe is the trifle bowl. If you don’t have one, any large, clear glass bowl will work but a trifle bowl will look the best. If you don’t have a trifle bowl, and are using a bowl without straight sides, I suggest cubing the cake before adding it to the bowl.
The wonderful thing about this chocolate peanut butter trifle is that you can easily modify it to fit your taste buds! Try swapping the peanut butter pudding for chocolate and adding chopped snickers to your recipe. Perhaps you’d rather have OREO cookies on top. No matter what the flavor, this trifle is about presentation and everyone will want a taste.
You’d think by the beauty of my chocolate peanut butter trifle recipe that it’s sweet and rich, but it’s anything but that. It’s a nice light and airy cake, followed by some tasty pudding, light whipped topping and candy. It’s not overly sweet and you might even ask for seconds!
