Ever since we held our recipe contest a few months back, and I discovered the tastiness of trifle’s, I have been loving the new varieties!!! Over the weekend, my husband was in charge of making Mother’s Day Dessert. I was really in the mood for a trifle, and wanted him to try a new version. He loves Tiramisu, and I love anything chocolate, so when he put this together, it was AMAZING!!! Everyone loved it and we will definitely be making this again!!!
1 package brownie mix (enough to make a 9×13)
Water/Oil/Eggs (follow back of brownie package for amounts needed)
1 (16 oz) container Whipped Topping, divided
3 oz chocolate bar, dark chocolate
1/2- 1 cup coffee liqueor
1/2 cup water
3 tbsp instant coffee granules
2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
1 (3 1/3 oz) package vanilla instant pudding
Prepare brownie mix as directed on box. Bake and allow to cool completely. Set aside 3/4 cup whipped topping, you’ll use this later. Meanwhile, chop up 1/2 the chocolate bar, using a food chopper. For filling, combine 1/2 cup coffee liqueor, water, and instant coffee. Stir until dissolved. In a separate bowl, whisk together cream cheese until smooth. Gradually add in coffee mixture. Combine until smooth. Add pudding mix to cream cheese mixture, whisk until mixture begins to thicken up. Fold in remaining whipped topping and chopped chocolate. Cut brownies into 1 inch cubes. To assemble trifle, place 1/3 brownie cubes on bottom of trifle bowl. Layer 1/3 of filling over brownies. Place a layer of whipped topping on filling layer. Repeat pattern two more times. Grate remaining chocolate bar on top of trifle once assembled.
