Brownie Trifle

Brownie Trifle

Jeremy LOVES Brownie Trifles.  When making this dessert, you either have to make a specific effort to have A LOT of time on hand and ingredients ... or it is the best leftover recipe in the land of desserts- leftover cake and brownies always become a trifle.  Trifles are fun to make because you can't really go wrong when creating them- here is our families favorite option!

These are some staples for beginning ... pudding, cool whip and fruit.  I usually opt for both chocolate and vanilla pudding and I like to use frozen fruit so it preserves longer while assembled in the trifle bowl and is less apt to become soggy.  

I made a batch of brownies ...

and then a few loaves of pound cake ...

Slice your brownies and cake into pieces to better assemble your trifle.

This is when it gets fun and creative.  
Get your trifle bowl or tall glasses ready if you would prefer individual servings.

Use your ingredients and place them into the bowl, topping one ingredient with the next in this order ...
layer pound cake
chocolate pudding
cool whip
vanilla pudding
cool whip
 Finishing with cool whip it is a pretty topper with a clean look

Trader Joe's came out with this caramel sauce and it is AMAZING! 

I poured some of this sauce over the cool whip to fancy it up a bit and the taste is incredible.

All finished!  Refrigerate and serve!
