Peanut Butter Brownie Trifle Recipe

I don’t remember the last time I posted a recipe here on Currently, Lately, but I do know that it’s been a while. And I do mean A WHILE. Like, I’m pretty sure it was snowing outside the last time I decided to share something I baked.

The only defense I can think of for why it has been so long since my latest recipe post is that I have a hard time remembering to photograph things before I eat them. If it weren’t for the fact that I have very little self control around freshly baked desserts (chocolate ones, in particular), you’d be seeing a lot more.

That being said, today I managed to snap a photo of what I made just before I ate it. So, I’ll be sharing a recipe for a trifle.

A peanut butter brownie trifle.

Now, I know I say this every time I do a recipe post, but you NEED to make this. Seriously. If you’ve got the ingredients in your fridge right now, get them out and start cooking. I promise you won’t regret it. This trifle is that good.

Anyway, without any further delay, here’s the recipe!
