Triple Chocolate Brownie Trifle

Triple Chocolate Brownie Trifle

Decadence at it’s finest!

Bake brownies in a 9×9 pan from a recipe or box of your choice & cool completely. Cut into 1″ squares.

Mix 2 envelopes of Dream Whip (I use the Always Save dry whipped topping for a third of the price) and 1 cup of milk until stiff peaks form. Set aside.

Mix 3 cups of milk with 2 packages of White Chocolate Pudding Mix 

Fold in 1/2 of the whipped topping to the pudding mix.

In a double boiler, mix 1 package (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/3 cup heavy cream, keeping the heat VERY low, stir until chips are melted & cream is mixed in.

Shave 1/2 cup white chocolate and set aside.

In a trifle bowl, layer brownies, chocolate sauce, pudding, whipped topping & white chocolate shavings. You can also add a sprinkle of Heath Toffee Bits to each layer if you like them.

I warn you now, this is VERY rich, but scrumptious!

Banana Split Trifle

Words can NOT express the scrumdiddlyumptious (remember that word from “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?” ) factor of this recipe!

I found this at Dishing With Leslie and had to share. It’s definitely a keeper, and expected to become a family favorite.

Leslie says:

I used vanilla wafers in this one. It’s also really good if you make it with pound cake, sponge cake, or even brownies! Do what you like and make it your own. So good!
Ingredients:
1 package instant banana pudding (5.1 oz size)
3 cups of milk (for pudding)
1 cup heavy cream
1 Tbs powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract (coconut is nice too)
1 box vanilla wafers
2 cups chopped pineapple
4 bananas, sliced
1 pint strawberries, sliced
juice of one lemon
chocolate syrup
chopped nuts (I use walnuts)
maraschino cherries
 
Directions:
Prepare pudding as directed on package, and sit in fridge to chill and firm. Next, in a medium bowl, beat cream, just until stiff peaks are ABOUT to form. Then, beat in your powdered sugar, and extract of choice, until stiff peaks DO form. Make sure not to over beat, or you will end up with very sweet butter! Set in fridge until you are ready to assemble.
Smile! (You just made homemade whipped cream!) Next, to keep your sliced bananas from browning, set them in a shallow dish and drizzle with lemon juice.
 
Assemble Your Dessert:
In a trifle bowl or other type of glass dish, arrange your wafers along the bottom. Top with about 1 cup of pineapple, half of your sliced bananas, half the strawberries, and half of the pudding. Repeat these steps again, beginning with wafers and ending with pudding. *Save a few strawberries for garnish. Spoon your whipped cream on top of the pudding and gently spread it around. Garnish with sliced strawberries or even some leftover pineapple if you have some. Drizzle with chocolate syrup. Top with chopped nuts and several maraschino cherries.
