Individual Brownie Bite Trifles

Individual Brownie Bite Trifles

These little shots of goodness really are as tasty as they look.  I’ve made these mini treats several times and always with great reviews.  They’re also very easy to make.

ingredients

The primary ingredients are all “instant” in nature and include Jell-O Chocolate Pudding, Nestle Brownie Bites, 2% Milk and Cool Whip.

This is the first time I’ve ever tried brownie dough like this.  I saw the package in the refrigerator section at the grocery store and bought it on a whim.

I usually mix and bake a regular batch of brownies, wait for them to cool, break them into pieces, then assemble the trifles.  I thought this pre-made package would save some time.

In the package is one pre-scored chunk of brownie dough.  I cut the pieces apart and placed them on a cookie sheet.  Kinda on the messy side but still no mixing required.

The baked bites obviously look like and have the texture of cookies but they do have a brownie taste.

While the brownies were cooling, I prepared the instant chocolate pudding according to package directions.

Next, I spooned one cup of the chocolate pudding into a bowl, then added two cups of Cool Whip and folded gently until well blended.

crumbled brownie pieces

To assemble, I crumbled two brownie bites into the bottom of a small glass dish.  For these trifles, I used little tealight holders which I found in a package of 4 at Ikea in Atlanta.

I spooned approximately 5 tbsp of chocolate pudding into the holder.  I prefer to go by sight…adding enough pudding until the holder is two-thirds full.

Finally, I filled a decorating tool with mousse and piped it to create the cute little swirls.  The mousse can also be spooned on top if desired.

After they were assembled, I personalized the trifles with assorted toppings.  The ones used were Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup, Hershey’s Caramel Sauce and a crumbled Heath bar.

The result was a quick and easy chocolaty treat with splashes of flavor based on the toppings used.  Yum!

    What fabulous mini-desserts! I love how the toppings can be customized. I’d crumble bits of Andes mints on mine…

    Glad I found this post through the SITS ShareFest link.

      Thanks Jenna. If you don’t find the Brownie Bite Dough, use your favorite homemade brownie recipe or packaged brownie mix. They work beautifully as well.

    I am going to try this recipe but I was a little confused. When you mixed the cool whip and the pudding, were you making the mousse that you put on top? And te chocolate pudding was made according to box directions?

      Hi Fareeha. The answer is Yes to both questions. After you mix the chocolate pudding according to box directions, wait the recommended amount of time until the pudding sets. Next fold 1 cup of the pudding into the cool whip. Be sure to fold the pudding and cool whip gently so it stays nice and fluffy. Enjoy!
