    PUDDING: Whisk the milk and pudding mixes together for 2 minutes; pudding will be thick. Add the peanut butter and vanilla; beat with an electric mixer until well blended. Fold in half of the whipped topping (1 1/2 cartons); set remaining whipped topping aside to use as the topping.

    LAYERS: Cut the peanut butter cups in half and set aside a third of them for garnishing the trifle. Begin layering the trifle by placing a third of the brownies on the bottom of the bowl. Add one third of the peanut butter cups on top of the brownies. Then add one third of the peanut butter pudding over the peanut butter cups; spread out evenly. Repeat the layers two more times. Spread the remaining whipped topping over the top of the last layer of peanut butter pudding. Garnish the top with the peanut butter cups that were set aside. Place in the refrigerator until chilled. This dessert can be prepared a day ahead.
