Oreo Brownie Trifle Recipe

The ultimate chocolate dessert! Layers of brownie pieces, rich chocolate pudding, whipped topping, and crushed Oreos. Swoon! Scroll down to see how the video – this is so easy to make, too!

I’d like to introduce you to my new best friend and yours: The Oreo Brownie Trifle.

I mean, just LOOK AT THIS.

No, I didn’t learn this in a fancy pastry arts class at school. I MADE IT UP.

What this Oreo Brownie Trifle lacks in organization and sophistication, it makes up for in ridiculous deliciousness.

I invented this chocolate wonder a few years ago to answer the question: What dessert has all my favorite things?

A photo of a spoonful of Oreo Brownie Trifle, with layers of whipped topping, chocolate pudding and chunks of Oreo cookies. The trifle dish is visible in the background, slightly out of focus.

This was my answer then, and this is my answer now.

And it’s so easy you’ll want to make it for Memorial Day.

I started with a boxed brownie mix. Say what you want about the goodness of homemade brownies, but the boxed ones feel just right when you’re pairing them with instant pudding, faux-dairy topping, and store-bought cookies.

The trifle has swirls of white whipped topping, chocolate pudding and chunks of Oreo cookie. There is one whole Oreo in the bowl. It is taken on a dark wood background and the Oreo Brownie trifle dish in the background.

Once you layer everything, chill it for an hour or two just so the pudding has a chance to set and the whipped topping is nice and cold.

Then, grab a large spoon or shovel and dig in.

    Can I make homemade brownies?

    1. meggan

      Yes! Can and should, they will be way better. :D Thanks Christina! -Meggan

    Can you make this the day before?

      I don’t feel like the brownies belonged to be honest. And even before I made it..I was iffy on it.

      My husband said Angel food cake would have worked better and I agree.

      A mistake on my part was getting “oreo” pudding mix(it was legit just vanilla with a few oreo chunks. I added more).
      My husband pushed for it because he is apparently a chocolate hater…lol..
      He did admit it needed chocolate pudding. It was just too sweet.

      I also followed the directions on the pudding box not realizing I was suppose to use sweetened condensed milk..and the box said milk(we will see if it sets..we ate a bit before it had fully chilled). I am glad I didn’t though. I feel it would have just made it way too sweet.

      I should have used a smaller bowl to make it in also. It was a smidge to big. I did buy extra whipped topping. And ended up using it all.

      I also added extra Oreos..to each layer.

      If I make it again I’ll definitely do chocolate pudding(probably use sweetened condensed milk too). I’ll use angel food cake instead.

      I love the brownie though but think it would be better in a trifle without Oreos. My husband did suggest something with caramel and removing the Oreos and that sounds delicious too.

      I haven’t made anything in a while so it was fun. I let my 14 month old help stir the brownie bater. He loved it.
      I think I’ll have fun fiddling with various trifle recipes for the next few months..and having a new helper will be fun.4 stars

      Hi Jane! Yes. The brownies may soften slightly (NOT get soggy). I actually prefer it that way because it feels like more of a cohesive dessert. If this concerns you in the slightest, though, you can make the components the day before and store them separately (make the brownies and keep on the counter, make the pudding layer and keep it in the fridge). And just assemble it in the morning or whenever you need it (at least 2 hours in advance). I hope this is helpful! Thanks Jane!
