Brownie Trifle

Two of my favorite desserts are brownies and chocolate dipped strawberries , so naturally I had to the combine them. :) With fresh strawberries in season, I can’t help but make all my desserts with strawberries. I made this brownie strawberry trifle for my friend’s baby shower and it was a big hit. With my closer friends that are having their second or third babies, we do more of a “sprinkle” where we go to dinner with a few friends and bring dessert and some gifts. It’s really fun and a great way to celebrate.


The best part is, this brownie trifle is fairly easy to make and you can make it a few hours ahead if you need to. It’s so pretty too! I think any dessert looks better in a trifle bowl. Such a fun and easy trifle dessert!

How to make this brownie trifle dessert

This trifle dessert really is so easy to make. You’ll start by baking a box of your favorite brownies and then allowing it to cool. I love using the ghiradelli box with chocolate chips in the bag. That is our families favorite. Once the brownies have cooled, you’ll cut into 1-inch squares (or bite sized squares).

Next you’ll layer the brownies, cream, strawberries and chocolate pudding. Then repeat until you reach the top of the bowl. I also melted some chocolate to dip the strawberries in and made chocolate curls with the leftover melted chocolate. I found this tutorial for making chocolate curls helpful. I’ve also found them pre-made in the sprinkles section at Hobby Lobby.

Ways to modify trifle recipes

  • You can also make these brownie trifle desserts using fresh raspberries. I made this version in little jars and love how they turned out. These would be perfect for serving at a shower or get together with friends. I love that with the jar trifles, you get a bite of each layer when you go in for a spoonful. YUM!

  • If you’re not a huge fan of cream cheese, feel free to make your own whipped cream. Try my delicious homemade whipped cream recipe.
  • Try mixing up the pudding flavor. Instead of chocolate, you could use white chocolate, vanilla, devil’s food, coconut cream and more.
