  • One 8x8 or 9x9 pan of brownies baked and cooled and cut into bite sized pieces

Chocolate peanut butter ganache:

  • cup creamy peanut butter at room temperature

Peanut butter whipped cream:

  • 1 ½ cups cold heavy cream
  • cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup creamy peanut butter at room temperature
  • ½ cup roasted salted peanuts chopped


Chocolate peanut butter ganache:

  • Place the chocolate chips and peanut butter in a large bowl.
  • Pour the cream into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat (do not boil). As soon as it starts to simmer, remove from the heat and pour the cream over the chocolate chips and peanut butter. Allow to sit untouched for 2-3 minutes. Whisk the mixture until smooth and creamy. Set aside.

Peanut butter whipped cream:

  • Beat the cream, powdered sugar, and peanut butter with an electric mixer on medium-high speed, until soft peaks form.


  • In individual glasses or a trifle dish, layer the brownies, ganache, and whipped cream, repeating the layers and finishing with a sprinkling of peanuts. You can layer them in any order you choose - I did ganache, brownies, whipped cream, ganache, brownies, whipped cream, ganache, peanuts.
  • Refrigerate or serve immediately. The ganache will firm up slightly if refrigerated.
