Cookies and Cream Brownie Trifle

For the last few months, my hubby has been asking me to make a trifle. I used to make them all the time, but moved on to different types of desserts. Each time he would ask, I would tell him I would make one that week and then accidentally forget and not make one. Bad points for me, I know hehe!

Well, I was offered the opportunity to try out Bud’s Best Caco Cookies and knew…this was my opportunity. My hubby is a HUGE cookie fan and always indulges in the “other” brand of cookies. I decided to test Bud’s cookies out, but not mention it to the hubby. I wanted a true opinion from the avid cookie fan.

I whipped this up in no time using brownie mix (you can make them from scratch if preferred), Bud’s Best Caco Chocolate cookies, cool whip, and cookies and cream pudding mix! The end result was fabulous and my hubby couldn’t even tell the difference between cookie brands!! My kids LOVE these chocolate cookies and even have a few in their lunch boxes each day!

Be sure to check them out in the grocery store cookie aisle, and while you are at it….pick up the ingredients for this trifle. It’s a must try!!
