Raspberry Brownie Trifle

Trifle – a  Scottish dessert made from thick pudding, custard, fruit, cake of some variety, and whipped cream, arranged in layers, has also become a very popular dessert here in the States. And in my opinion, one of the easiest and most impressive desserts you can make.

The perfect example is this Raspberry Brownie Trifle – layers of fudgy brownies, chocolate mousse, raspberries and whipped cream!

This dessert is one of those “lick the bowl” type of desserts! Seriously my friends, I wanted to eat every-single-one of these! I “forced” the boys to eat them so I wouldn’t be tempted.

As I’ve mentioned, Trifle Desserts are so easy yet impressive. They can be served in a large clear glass bowl, or small individual servings. These footed containers are plastic and the perfect size for these luscious Raspberry Brownie Trifles.

I started with a brownie box mix, then layered them with Chocolate Mousse – a combination of Cool Whip Whipped Topping and pudding, fresh Raspberries and topped with a little more Cool Whip, chocolate shavings and a raspberry.
