Brownie Trifle

READY IN: 8hrs 50mins
Recipe by Chemaine

Here's another easy and popular dessert. I have made it with and without the kahlua, it's such a minor amount that if a child gets one serving of this it shouldn't be too bad.

This is decadent! Made this the other night to take to a dinner party and everyone loved it and requested I bring it to another upcoming event! Note....the pudding you need to use is the INSTANT type. I did make this without the Kahlua since kids were going to be eating some, but I will make it with the Kahlua next time since it's for adults...yummy either way!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 19 78 ounces brownie mix
  • 12 cup Kahlua
  • 11 23 ounces chocolate pudding mix (3 boxes)
  • 12 ounces Cool Whip (I use the red label so you need more)
  • 10 12 ounces candy bars (I use the mini's mix, crushed)


  1. Prepare and bake brownie mix according to package directions in a 13 x9 inch pan. Prick top of warm brownies at 1 inch intervals with wooden pick and brush with Kahlua. Cool brownies and crumble into small pieces.
  2. Prepare 3 packages of pudding mix according to package directions, USING a total of 4 cups of milk instead of 6 cups, and omitting chilling procedure.
  3. Place one-third of crumbled brownies in a 3 quart trifle bowl; top with one-third each of pudding, whipped topping, and crushed candy bars.
  4. Repeat layers twice using remaining ingredients, ending with crushed candy bars. Cover and chill trifle at least 8 hours.
