Is Peanut Butter Healthy?

Peanut butter is very high in fat, and calories.

But the good news is, you get a lot of nutrition for your 190-calorie investment.

Nuts and nut butters are a great source of protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals.

I’ve always been obsessed with little miniaturized desserts, and trifles are no exception. So when I made my Mini Funfetti Oreo Trifles a few months back, I just knew that mini trifles were the only way to go. Not only do they make the perfect homemade gift for literally any occasion, but they’re super portable, and they freeze really well. So if you’re feeling a little greedy, which is likely to be the case after one bite, you could easily freeze all eight of these trifle minis and enjoy one a week (or one a day!) without anyone else knowing. Genius!

Hey, sometimes it’s ok to be a little greedy, ESPECIALLY when it involves desserts! I only say this because I’ve done the exact same thing. Don’t judge me..

.

These “little” jars are also perfect for portion control. Though some might argue that the jars are a tad bit on the larger side (at least they’re not quart-sized), those same individuals are likely to recant that statement once the first spoonful of peanut buttery Oreo goodness passes their lips.

Is Peanut Butter Safe for Dogs?

Most peanut butter is safe for dogs – which makes it a great treat for pups.

 

Will Trifle Get Soggy if Kept Overnight?

Trifle is always best prepared the day you will be serving it.

Leftover trifle can be stored, loosely covered in the fridge, for up to 3 days, after which it will still be edible but the cake will be very soggy and the pudding will become looser, soaking up the whipped cream and syrup.

  1. I served these last night for a dinner party. These went over big time…The trifles were not overly sweet, and really fun to eat from the mason jars. These were anything but “mini” 🙂 A really nice sized portion, and definitely on my dinner party rotation.

    • That makes me SO happy to hear that these “mini” trifles were a hit for your dinner party, Jeff! I completely agree that eating desserts like this from a mason jar are a lot more fun. Thanks for sharing, and I hope you’re able to try some of my other not-so-mini trifle recipes 🙂

  2. YES-pb & Oreo’s are the tastiest combo! These trifles look and sound incredible, esp that pb mousse!

    • Thanks Kayle! The peanut butter mousse is definitely my favorite part of these trifles. It’s like a light peanut butter cheesecake mousse!
