For the trifle:


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease the bottom of a 9-inch by 9-inch pan. In a large bowl, combine brownie mix, eggs, oil, and water. Pour into greased pan and bake until done, about 40 minutes. Cool. Cut into 1-inch squares.
  • In a large bowl, combine the pudding mix, vanilla, water, and sweetened condensed milk. Mix until smooth, then fold in 8 ounces of whipped topping. Fold until no streaks remain. 
  • In a trifle bowl or glass serving dish, place half of the brownies, half of the pudding mixture and 4 ounces of remaining whipped topping. Repeat layers. Garnish with crumbled Oreo cookies. Refrigerate 2 hours before serving.



  1. Brownies: Of course you can make homemade Brownies from scratch to cube and layer into this dish, but I love to save time with the semi-homemade route. No one will notice you started with boxed brownie mix, promise!
  2. Sweetened condensed milk: Combining this with the boxed chocolate pudding mix makes its consistency remarkably silky and rich.
  3. Whipped topping: Cool Whip is a Midwestern staple, although any brand will do. Or, substitute an equal amount of whipped cream.
  4. Oreo cookies: When making the crushed Oreos, tread lightly with a food processor or blender (unless you want Oreo dust). I usually add the cookies to a plastic bag and smash them with a rolling pin to crush them without obliterating them.
  5. Yield: This chocolate dessert makes 12 generous servings.
  6. Storage: Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days
