Peanut Butter Cup Trifle

Dangerous, but oh so delicious!

Brownie Layer:  
Just mix up your favor 9x13 pan of brownies (I used a mix)

Peanut Butter Layer:  
8 oz cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup peanut butter
Cream above together, 
then stir in 1 c powdered sugar, 
a splash of milk, 
and a splash of vanilla
Fold in about 1 cup of whipped cream.  You can make your own or use Cool Whip

Peanut Butter Cup Layer: I used about 6 packages (12 cups in all) and chopped them up

Chocolate Mousse Layer: I used a store-bought mix and whipped up about 2 cups of mousse.  You can also use Jell-o pudding if you want

Repeat layers again and top with Whipped Cream--if you made your own, you could use about 2 cups heavy cream whipped up total and use half of it for your peanut butter layer.  Or use Cool Whip if you are running out of bowls and whipping utensils!
Finish off with about 8 peanut butter cups chopped up!

This was a huge hit and fed a big crowd.  We will be serving it again when we have people over for dinner!
