Family Holidays are THE BEST! We really like to celebrate. My daughter Joyce especially likes to make her desserts especially festive and so she colors the pudding and whipped topping in this Peanut Butter Brownie Trifle to make it special for Easter!

This is a really easy dessert to make. Brownies, pudding, peanut butter, frozen whipped topping and miniature peanut butter cups. So good!!!!

You can use your favorite brownie recipe, a mix or you can make the black bean brownies for a gluten free option.

Some grocery stores carry a peanut butter instant pudding, but I can rarely find it so I add the peanut butter to vanilla pudding, it may actually be better than the premade instant!

You don’t have to color the pudding and the whipped topping but it does make a festive dessert for Easter!
