I have been working on this recipe for a couple of months…it was meant to be a gift for someone, and even though that person is long gone from my life, I decided that I had already put too much thought and time into it to let it go to waste…plus, it turned out so freaking tasty that I would be doing the world a disservice by not posting it. Not meaning to toot my own horn, but once in a great, great while I am at the top of my game in the kitchen, and this recipe is easily one of the best ones on my site thus far! That’s just my opinion though. You’ll have to try it and let me know what you think.
The inspiration for this recipe was Moose Tracks Ice Cream, of course. So it has fudge, peanut butter, and vanilla for the flavor explosion that is going to happen in your mouth. I figured that flavor combo would be perfect in trifle form, especially for people that love Moose Tracks Ice Cream but want to shake things up a bit.
I’ll start by showing you the ingredients all laid out…
We’ve got layers of Fudge Brownies (instead of the cake or lady fingers most trifles have). They were cut into squares using my Norpro Scraper.
Then came the Peanut Butter Mousse,
all three of them repeated,
followed by Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chips,
- 1 Batch Fudge Brownies (prepared and cut into little squares)
- 3X Vanilla Mousse Recipe
- 1 Batch Peanut Butter Mousse
- Hot Fudge Topping
- 1 Pkg Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate Chips
- In a standard trifle bowl, evenly spread out half of the brownie squares. *Pack them tight around the edges for a better looking trifle.*
- Next, spread half of the Peanut Butter Mousse over the brownies.
- Follow with half of the Vanilla Mousse.
- Repeat those layers.
- Sprinkle ⅔rds of the Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate chips.
- Warm the hot fudge topping for about 30 seconds and let it cool a bit, so it's not too warm but still spreadable.
- Sprinkle the remaining Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate chips.
- It's ready to serve or gently/loosely cover and refrigerate until needed.
I let my brownies cool and then left them sitting in the cooled oven over night so that they would be a little more dry. This makes the brownies get soggy less quickly, so if you want your trifle to stay good for a couple/few days in the fridge, maybe do that too.
I would not make this more than one night before needed...just so it tastes best.
