Girl Scout Cookie Peanut Butter and Cream Brownie Trifle Recipe
Couple things… Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cream, my kryptonite. Brownie Trifle, enough said. Girl Scout Cookies, why do they only sell these once a year? Yeah, I don’t know either. I was in Girl Scouts! Back in the late 70’s, 5th grade (AKA ‘The Dark Ages for some of you) My mom made me join. Girly stuff mom’s make daughters do. Anyways, I met my best friend Kathy, whom I am so lucky to still have as a friend today! I loved Girl Scouts! Until I went to the 1st (and only) sleep-over camp thingy. There were bugs involved. No brownie trifle, no chocolate and peanut butter Tagalongs, And NO bathrooms. No, there were outhouses. In my whole 10 years of life experience I decided it best to stay out of them and wait until I got home. I made it from Saturday morning when we arrived to Sunday evening on the bus ride home. Buses are ‘bouncy’… Big full bladders in small girls on bouncy buses… you do the math. So, girly stuff and no bathroom sleep-over camps aside, that totally worked out for me. I don’t have sisters, so Kathy was my fill-in. We did the door-to-door knocking, hocking those cookies like everyone else. Knowing our parents and the poor shmoo’s they work with would end up buying the whole lot out of guilt. Good times. My 3 favorites were the Tagalongs (chocolate, peanut butter cream-y goodness!) Samoas (chocolate, coconut awesome sauce) And, naturally the Thin Mints because, obviously. So, heck yeah when I was asked to try out the new Limited Edition Girl Scout Cookie Flavored Nestle Crunch Bars I got a little giddy! But, because I’m a big girl now and sticking Samoas in the microwave to get them all melty, ooey, gooey doesn’t really count as ‘dessert’ (yes, I really did that, don’t judge) I had to whip up something special. I remember Mr. Food has a great recipe for candy bar trifles. So, why not use these and make a Peanut Butter Cream Brownie Trifle!! YES! It does do a dance on your taste buds, just like you’re imagining right now! I used the peanut butter cream Tagalongs. Want to make your own brownie trifle? Pick up a few of your favorite flavor and follow this recipe. But, you’ll have to kinda act quick, limited time edition and all. I promise, you will come back and thank me.
Peanut Butter Cream Brownie Trifle Recipe
- 1 Package Brownie Mix
- 1 Box Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix (I used cheesecake flavored)
- 3 cups Milk
- 3/4 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
- 3 1/2 Cups Coarsely Chopped Nestle Crunch Peanut Butter Cream Girl Scout Flavored Candy Bars - 1/2 Cup For Garnish
- 1 Container Whipped Topping (thawed)
Start off by making your brownies according to package directions. Now set those aside and let those cool completely.
In a large bowl, whisk pudding mix and milk until slightly thickened. Whisk in peanut butter until thoroughly combined. Confess - I used a hand mixer and saved my arm a bit. Refrigerate for about 10-15 minutes.
Cut up brownies into 1-inch pieces. Now here's your big decision, make 1 large Peanut Butter Cream Brownie Trifle or a couple small ones... Totally up to you, directions stay the same, just split them up evenly! (I made 2 large ones) Place a layer in bottom of a trifle bowl (or glass bowl/jar of your choice) Cover with the pudding mixture, a layer of the the candy, and then the whipped topping. Repeat layers and garnish with reserved candy.
Cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving!
Voila!! Easy as that, you just made an awesome sauce Peanut Butter Cream Brownie Trifle!! Makes you want to run out and stock up on those limited edition bars, huh??!!
Ok, because I’m such a giver, I have a super secret bonus I’m sharing only with you! Don’t tell people this. When you’re done making that heaven on your tongue Peanut Butter Creme Brownie Trifle, you just may have some extra pieces of chopped candy bar left over. I threw mine in the freezer because it’s warm here in Las Vegas and… melt…. Guess what??!! They taste EXACTLY like the real deal frozen Girl Scout cookies!! Ok, they didn’t last long, obviously, I have no self-control. But!! I’m totally stocking up before these limited edition Nestle Crunch bars are gone!

Hysterical about your little bus trip!! I love girl scouts and the cookies too. I sure do hope the girl scouts are getting a cut of the profits from nestle, they deserve it.
I can never hear the word trifle without thinking about the Friends episode when Rachel puts beef and onions in hers.
