Easy No Bake Dessert: Brownie Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Trifle

So yes, I’m fully aware of the insane title of this blog post. But seriously, would have even come here if you didn’t see that this dessert included all of those amazing ingredients?

Or possibly, it was the “easy” or “no bake” part of it that tickled your fancy? Either way, you’re here and I’m about ready to fill you in on this dessert that I made for my husband’s birthday.

This year for his birthday dinner, I made a ribeye with my easy steak recipe, and paired it with a healthy side dish: Roasted Broccoli, so I could cancel it out with the fiesta ranch potato wedges and buffalo bacon blue cheese dip.

The look on his face when I brought this trifle out to him after dinner, was absolutely priceless.

What did you do?

He looked with amazement at this beauty when I walked towards him, almost like when you see one of those crazy-wild milkshakes for the first time? But the look on your face, when you see how quick and easy it is… will probably be pretty similar to his.

Store Bought Brownie Bites:

Alright, I can hear all of you out there that love homemade desserts, and think that store bought anything is a sin. But I adore being able to buy things already made if it will make things in life a bit easier. So for this dessert dish, I bought brownie bites in the bakery of my local grocery store. First, layer the brownies in the bottom of a trifle dish…

If you’re with me on that one, then you’re going to LOVE my new cookbook coming out, “Slightly Homemade.” Sign up for my newsletter so you’ll be one of the first to know that it’s available, HERE!
