I’m so lucky to have such an amazing family that loves to cook and share recipes. My sister in law Brandy has out done herself again! She made this fabulous trifle over the holidays that I just had to share with you. (Thanks Brandy!)
The trifle is full of my favorite flavors. I dug in like a kid in a candy store and you will too.
I whipped up this recipe while my sister was at my house. She leaned over the trifle dish, just waiting to try a bite. I loved messing with her and telling her she had to wait until I took the pictures. (She’s not used to the whole picture taking aspect.) It was sooo cute watching her excitement. I had to give her the spoon and the whisk to lick. That satisfied her sweet tooth until the trifle and pictures were done.
If you love chocolate pudding, brownies, and cool whip then this recipe is for you! It’s super easy and you will look like a superstar serving this dessert for your family and friends. This Chocolate Brownie Trifle is that good!
Easy Peasy Pleasy Tips
- An 8×8 pan of brownies work perfect for this recipe. Use store bought or make your own pan.
- Cool brownies completely. You could make the brownies ahead of time or the night before.
- If making homemade brownies or boxed brownies…don’t forget those ingredients.
- DO NOT follow the the pudding box directions. Follow the directions listed below when mixing the pudding. You will see that you need less milk.
Chocolate Brownie Trifle
- 1 box brownie mix (8×8 pan)
- 2 cups milk
- 1 5.1 ounce package chocolate instant pudding mix
- 1 16 ounce container cool whip, divided
- chocolate bar, optional for garnish
Prepare brownies according to package directions. Cool completely. Split the prepared brownies into thirds. Cut one third into little squares and set aside. Crumble the remaining 2 thirds but keep separate for the layers. Mix instant pudding according to package directions using only 2 CUPS milk. Carefully fold in half of the cool whip into prepared pudding.
Layer a third of the crumbled brownie into the bottom of a trifle dish. Next layer half of the pudding mixture over the brownie. Then layer half of the remaining cool whip over the pudding mixture. Repeat the layers once more. Top the middle of the trifle with little brownie squares. Using a vegetable peeler, peel chocolate shavings over the top of the trifle. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve. Eat and Enjoy!
