The beauty of trifles is that they’re wonderful made ahead of time. You know how I feel about make-ahead desserts! They’re an entertainer’s dream! This dish is delicious the minute you make it but it really just melds together and becomes one the next day.

If you don’t have a trifle bowl, don’t fret! Use a large glass bowl or make mini trifles with mason jars, martini glasses, etc. Peanut Butter Cup Trifle

I used a whole bag of standard Reese’s but you could also use mini Reese’s or even dark chocolate Reese’s. You could also use this same recipe with a variety of chopped candy bars, making it a great recipe to use up leftover Halloween candy.
