Make an easy, no-bake trifle using brownies and Oreos to satisfy your dessert craving. Trifles are typically comprised of layers of pudding, whipped cream and cookies or cake. Due to the fact the delicious chocolate trifle does not require baking, this recipe can be particularly suitable as a dessert for the warm summer months. For dinner parties or birthday celebrations, consider using individual parfait glasses to layer the chocolate trifle to provide each guest with their own dessert.
Things You'll Need
Place the Oreo cookies into the plastic bag and crush with the rolling pin. Pour the crushed cookies into the small mixing bowl, reserving about 1/4 cup of the crushed cookies in the bag for decoration. Chop the brownies into approximately 1/4 inch cubes.
Mix the crushed cookies with the melted butter in the bowl. Press the cookies and butter mixture firmly into the bottom of the large glass bowl.
Using the mixer, thoroughly combine the cream cheese and powdered sugar. With the aid of the spatula, spread the cream cheese mixture over the crushed cookie layer in the glass bowl.
Distribute the brownie cubes over the cream cheese layer, ensuring that the chunks are equally distributed. Spoon the chocolate pudding layer over the brownie cubes.
Finish assembling the trifle by placing a layer of whipped topping over the chocolate pudding. Sprinkle the remaining crushed Oreo cookies over the top for decoration.
Cover the trifle with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for two to three hours before serving.
