  • 1 package fudge brownie mix
  • 2 packages miniature Reese’s cups
  • 4 cups cold milk (preferably 2%)
  • 2 packages instant vanilla pudding
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cans (8 oz each) thawed Cool Whip


Step 1: Prepare the Brownies

  1. Make the Brownie Batter: Follow the directions on the brownie mix box to prepare the batter.
  2. Bake: Pour the batter into a greased 12×9-inch pan. Set the oven to 350°F and bake for 20-25 minutes. The brownies are done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with moist crumbs.
  3. Cool: Once baked, place the pan on a wire rack to cool completely. Once cool, slice the brownies into 3/4-inch thick pieces.

Step 2: Prepare the Peanut Butter Cups

  1. Cut the Peanut Butter Cups: Halve the miniature Reese’s cups and set them aside for garnishing.

Step 3: Make the Pudding Mixture

  1. Mix Pudding: In a large bowl, beat the instant vanilla pudding mix with the cold milk for 2 minutes until thick.
  2. Add Peanut Butter and Vanilla: Stir in the peanut butter and vanilla extract until well combined. Fold in 1 1/2 cups of Cool Whip to make the mixture extra creamy.

Step 4: Assemble the Layers

  1. Layer the Ingredients: In a 5-quart glass dish, place one-third of the brownie pieces at the bottom. Top with one-third of the pudding mixture and some halved peanut butter cups.
  2. Repeat Layers: Continue layering the brownies, pudding, and peanut butter cups two more times.
  3. Top it Off: Finish with the remaining Cool Whip and garnish with the last of the halved peanut butter cups.

Step 5: Chill and Serve

  1. Refrigerate: Chill the dessert in the refrigerator for a few minutes to set before serving.
