Moms. We all have one. And they all want the same thing this Sunday. Chocolate.
No really, that’s what they want. At least that’s what I want. This brownie trifle dessert is a winner every single time. It feeds a large crowd too so if you’re eating dinner with your entire family this is a good choice. Also it’s a good choice if you’re just eating it by yourself. Let’s be honest, it’s just a good choice in general. And no, it’s not made in the slow cooker but I just really wanted to share it with you anyhow!
I like this recipe better than regular trifle because:
A. It uses brownies instead of cake. (I will choose brownies 100% of the time over cake)
B. It has a sprinkling of Heath Bar Toffee Bits throughout the entire dessert giving it some crunch. Heath Bars are one of my very favorite candy bars. I find the bag of heath bar bits next to the chocolate chips.
Anyhow, happy Mother’s Day to all your wonderful mother’s out there! Eat some chocolate, take a nap and waste some time doing whatever you want 🙂
- 1 brownie mix, prepared (I recommend the Ghiradelli brownie mix, or you can make a pan of homemade brownies)
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 Tbsp powdered sugar
- 1 (3.2 oz) box chocolate mousse, prepared (I used this one)
- 1 (3.9 oz) box instant chocolate pudding, prepared (I used this kind)
- 1 (8 oz) bag Heath Bar Toffee Bits
- After you have prepared the brownies, let them cool. Once they are cooled cut them up into little
- In a large bowl whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form. Make sure not to over-beat.
- Using a large glass bowl (or an actual trifle bowl like this one) layer each of the ingredients three times: whipped cream, chocolate mousse, brownies, chocolate pudding, toffee bits. I like to end with a little whipped cream and toffee bits on top.
- Serve and enjoy!
