Brownie strawberry trifle

Brownie strawberry trifle made with layers of strawberries, chocolate pudding, cream and brownies.

Two of my favorite desserts are brownies and chocolate dipped strawberries , so naturally I had to the combine the two. With fresh strawberries in season, I can’t help but make all my desserts with strawberries.  I made this brownie strawberry trifle for my friends baby shower last month and it was a big hit. With my closer friends that are having their second or third baby, 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.Brownie strawberry trifle made with layers of strawberries, chocolate pudding, cream and brownies.

The best part is, it’s 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.

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.

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 with the little jars that you get a bite of each layer when you go in for a spoonful. YUM!

Brownie strawberry trifle made with layers of strawberries, chocolate pudding and cream and brownies.

Yield: 16 servings

Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

  • 1 (20-ounce) box brownie (I prefer Ghiradelli) + ingredients on box
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 (5.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding + ingredients on box
  • 2 pounds strawberries

Directions:

For the first layer: Make the brownies according to the package in a half-sheet pan. If there aren't chocolate chips in the batter add 1/2 cup. Bake just until a toothpick comes clean and then allow to cool completely. Cut into 1-inch bite sized squares.

For the second layer: In a large bowl mix together the cream, cream cheese and sugar. Mix on medium speed until a peak forms (about 3 to 5 minutes).

For the third layer: Slice strawberries into thin slices.

For the forth layer: Make the chocolate pudding according to package.

Once all your layers are ready begin layering into a trifle dish. Repeat until you reach the top of the dish. Top with chocolate curls and chocolate dipped strawberries if desired.
