This is soooo delicious!! My whole family loved it. It is very rich and sinfully good. I even used the the peanut butter mixture for an apple dip. To die for!!

I softened the cream cheese in the microwave for about 45 seconds then mixed it up. It made it so much easier to mix in the other ingredients. Once mixed I added in chunks of Butterfinger pieces for a nice added crunch. The people at the cookout I went to went nuts over this and everyone was asking for the recipe. A great dessert to bring anywhere, but don't forget to make it for yourself because it's awesome!

I thought this was very good...and easy. Rich. The adults seemed to really like it. My 6 year old who loves everything in this trifle, did not enjoy the peanut butter creamy layer. I think next time I would add chopped reeses into the peanut butter layer. Made as written but omitted chocolate sauce on the top. Brownies were an excellent addition. Perfect amount it filled up my trifle bowl to the very top, without any leftovers. Looks very time consuming like all trifles, for little effort! Thanks for posting!!

Well, thanks to you and this recipe, my sister-in-law may never speak to me again! She has always been the "dessert queen" at our holiday gatherings, but this Thanksgiving I dethroned her. Her dessert went untouched, while this sinfully delicious creation was heaped on everyone's plates until it was gone! My daughter wants me to make more today. So much for my diet!!

First let me say that I brought this to dessert night, which is basically just a group of us that meet once a week, eat dessert and chat. I also made on for SO's potlock at work. I got soooo many rave reviews. This is rich and delicious...also a little wicked. A little goes a LONG way. Easy to make, but having the cream cheese very soft, helps it mix better. This will definitely go into the wow factor file in my recipe book. Thank you for a fantastic recipe!

HANDS DOWN!!! My new favorite dessert of all times. I made this for the first time for my sons birthday party so I could share with others verses eating it all myself. It was well received!! I was afraid it would either be too bland or too rich and let me tell you it was neither. Shear perfection. I did cheat and use box brownies because I was afraid of trying a new brownie recipe since good ones are sure hard to find but as we speak I have a batch in the oven. Im keeping my fingers crossed and am hoping these will be my new favorite from scratch brownies. I'll let you know!! Well even though the brownies have a good taste, they are still not what Im looking for in a homemade brownie recipe. I want thick, chewy,ooey and gooey...lol..guess I'll just have to continue my search. But as I stated up above the peanut butter mixture is to die for. Thanks sweetlady! Your the best

This is about as close to a perfect dessert as you could get if you are chocoholic-peanut butter-lovers like us! THANK YOU for sharing, Sweetslady! This is, without a doubt, a new family favorite! I made your "from scratch" brownies - yum! I almost couldn't tear myself away from the delicious peanut butter filling... I'm already trying to think of other ways to use this whipped peanutty perfection... maybe just a bowl and a spoon...

This was amazing (and very rich). I made for some friends, and though it was too rich for some, I was happy to eat the leftovers!

this recipe should carry a warning... something like: "Make and eat at your own risk. Clinical studies have shown this dessert to be highly addictive (like crack!). Husbands have been known to do wild and crazy things to get this made again." Consider yourselves warned - stay away from this dangerous dish!
