Delicious no-bake dessert. Apples, peanut butter, and graham cracker with sweet cream; who in there right mind could pass this up; especially presented in a fancy glass trifle bowl! (you can buy these bowls for less than $10.00) I will follow in future with more recipes you can use in this bowl. This is great for showers, picnics, bizarres at-work parties or family holiday dinner
