kahlua brownie trifle Okay, so everyone needs a box of secret recipes to pull out on occasion…ones that tastes AMAZING, ones that everyone ooh’s and ahh’s over, but are secretly QUICK & EASY to make!  This Kahlua Brownie Trifle is one of my secret simple dessert recipes that meets all of the above criteria.  

I recently made this for two separate occasions & am almost, but not really, embarrassed to share how sinfully easy & delicious this recipe really is.   Monday I hosted a ‘mommy martini’ night on my back patio.  Suddenly I had an epiphany, my summer had been filled with great family moments, lots of kid activities, fun work experience & vacation travels, but I hadn’t seen any of my friends unless I was dropping kids for play dates and/or family picnic styled gatherings & I decided after all of the coordinating I do for my kids lives, it was time for a mommy moment!  It was an impromptu event & not everyone could make it, but there were 5 of us under the stars enjoying my signature 2014 summer martinis, a few other nibbles & this Kahlua Brownie Trifle that received the mom’s stamp of approval.  But even more important than this Kahlua Brownie Trifle was the conversation, the laughter & how grateful I am for all of the fabulous ladies in my life!

Kahlua Brownie Trifle by Jodie Fitz

1 Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie Mix 

2 cups whipping cream (16 oz.)

1 cup kahlua

1 cup mini chocolate morsels

1/2 cup cake flour

1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar

1 package of Oreo cookies (optional)

Mix the brownie mix as directed on the package with their water, egg & oil measurement.  Stir in the 1/2 cup cake flour, 1/2 cup of the kahlua & the 1 cup of mini chocolate morsels.  Bake the brownies in a 13×9 pan at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.  Let them cool completely.

Once the brownies have fully cooled cut them into mini squares, approximately 1 inch in diameter.  

Using an electric mixer, mix the 2 cups of whipping cream, 1/2 cup kahlua and 1/2 cup of confectioner’s sugar together until the cream has completely thickened.

Crush the Oreo cookies by placing them into a large Ziploc bag, sealing it and crushing them.  Or, place them into a food processor. 

Layer the trifle by placing half of the cut brownies on to the bottom of a trifle bowl.  Dividing the crushed Oreos into thirds, add a third of the crushed Oreos and top it with half of the cream mixture.  Add the second half of brownie bits, a third of the Oreos and the other half of the cream.  Top it off with the last of the crushed Oreos. 

NOTE:  It’s best to layer this brownie trifle dessert just before serving.  Keep the cream & any uneaten trifle refrigerated.  ENJOY!  We did…


dessert and friends
