CHOCOLATE BROWNIE TRIFLE RECIPE

Let’s talk about one of life’s best pleasures..chocolate! That wonderful, melt in your mouth silky deliciousness.

INGREDIENTS TO MAKE CHOCOLATE BROWNIE TRIFLE

  • Whipped Cream or Frozen Non-Dairy Topping* – essential for this fluffy recipe!
  • Powdered Sugar – to sweeten homemade whipped cream.
  • Vanilla Extract – for adding flavor to the whipped cream.
  • Chocolate Chips – add more chocolate flavor and texture.
  • Chocolate Instant Pudding Mix – we love fudge chocolate flavored pudding, but choose your own favorite.
  • Milk – needed to make the instant pudding.
  • Eggs – required for the brownie mix.
  • Fudge Brownie Mix
  • Oil – called for in most brownie mixes.

*If using Non-Dairy Whipped Topping you will not need the powdered sugar or vanilla

This recipe is totally adaptive too. You can make the brownies from scratch with our easy chocolate brownies and homemade fudge brownies recipes instead of a mix, or go the other way and purchase brownies from the bakery. Any way you make it, it is a chocolate lover’s dream come true.

HOW LONG DOES TRIFLE LAST?

If you have any leftover, they can be stored loosely covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. After that, the brownies may be soggy and the whipped cream and pudding may start to separate.

  1. Hi Anna. Adding liquor to whipped cream is simple. Just add a tablespoon or two along with the sugar as you’re beating the cream to the stiff peak stage.😁 While it can be done, adding liquor to brownies (and being able to taste it) is a little harder. The alcohol will bake out of the brownies and you would need to add quite a bit to be able to taste the liquor over the chocolate. You could lightly brush warm baked brownies with liquor to infuse the flavor that way. Hope that helps.

  2. I would like to make this for Christmas. Have you or anyone out there used a liquor in either the brownie or whip cream?
