Brownie Trifle Recipe

Are you a dessert person?  Normally I am not, but when I entertain I like to have a fabulous dessert on hand. I’ve come to love trifles. They’re easy to assemble and look great in Trifle dishes. This dessert ended differently from the way I originally planned.  Normally I use chocolate pudding, but time was not on my side so I skipped it.  Needless to say, I was actually worried about how it would turn out, but no worries it was delicious.  I’m going to by-pass the pudding from this point on. 
Here’s what you need:

  • 1 Trifle Bowl
  • 2 boxes of fudge style brownie mix
  • 2 containers of Cool Whip
  • Sliced Strawberries
Bake brownies according to directions on the box.  However, you will need to allow them to cool completely.  Next, cut brownies into bite size squares. Layering is key to this dish. Place a layer of brownies around the bottom of the dish. Add a tablespoon of Cool Whip to the center of the brownies. Repeat this process.  Carefully spread the Cool Whip toward the edges.
Be careful with this step.  If the cool whip splashes against the sides of the dish it will affect the presentation.  Add more Cool Whip and spread to the edges. Be generous with the Cool Whip. You want guest to have plenty with the brownies and strawberries.  Add sliced strawberries around the entire dish. 
Add another layer of brownies, another layer of Cool Whip and strawberries. Top the dish off with Cool Whip and fresh strawberries as shown. 
This dish was devoured. I even had one guest say “you can keep the food, just pass me that dessert.” Make this Brownie Trifle your go to dessert. You won’t regret it. Do you have a favorite dessert that you like to serve when entertaining or take to an office party?
