The ultimate chocolate dessert! Layers of brownie pieces, rich chocolate pudding, whipped topping, and crushed Oreos. Swoon!
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?
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.
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.
