Walking the aisle at Walmart, I spotted a new candy bar from Nestlé –  BUTTERFINGER® Peanut Butter Cups. Have you seen these? They just hit the shelves and I couldn’t wait to try them out.

I have to say I took a risk with this recipe.  I wasn’t sure how combining red velvet cake and Butterfingr Peanut Butter Cups was going to translate but i’m glad I took a chance.  The combination of creamy milk chocolate and smooth peanut butter enhanced the flavor of the trifle.

The Butterfinger Cups Red Velvet Trifle was super easy to make because I took the guess work out by using a cake mix.
