RECIPE: The Great Wall of Chocolate Trifle Pudding

Hey y’all! So last week, we had a Fathers’ Day,-birthday-graduation brunch (which meant we got their at 11 and didn’t get home until 9 PM) party, and my friend and I were tasked with making dessert.
Let’sbehonest here- what’s better in the summer than a trifle? I had never made anything but a fruit trifle before, so we decided to try our hands at something chocolatey. And oh it was chocolatey. So chocolatey.
The thing about a trifle is that you need a lot of layers, and they need different textures. Smooth and light, rich and heavy, crumbly , and crunchy. Because we had to make do with what we had at home, we made some substitutions, but they turned out well.

Alright, so the layers from bottom to top:

-Brownie: some people prefer to crumble this, but we baked a batch and cut out a circle to go on the bottom of the dish
-Dark Chocolate pudding: with all the sweetness in there, you’ll appreciate this being slightly lighter
-some kind of white cake: We happened to have cinnamon rolls lying around the house, so we just used those and it wasn’t bad!
-More chocolate pudding
-Chocolate Peanut Butter Mousse
            -Put together desired amount of chocolate chips, peanut butter, and half and half OR heavy whipping cream into a bowl and microwave for 2-3 minutes, taking it out to stir every 30 seconds. Adjust ratio of chocolate chips to peanut butter after
-Puppy Chow/Muddy Buddies, whatever you want to call it. I’ll be doing a separate post on this later, but for now, I just linked a recipe. We didn’t have Chex at home, so we used Cinnamon Toast Crunch and it turned out well.
-Chocolate Mousse: Mix lots of Cool Whip into the pudding- and refrigerate: it works, I swear
-Brownie bits: we used the leftovers form our base
-Cool Whip, for color
-Top with a final layer of the peanut butter chocolate mousse and some brownie bits.

Remember to refrigerate this for a couple of house before you eat, because this is at least 17 times better when cold.



Okay, does that sound amazing or what!? Go ahead, pin it (I will love you forever if you do), and make it for your next summer get-together. Everyone will love it, and it’s so easy! If you have any questions, put it in the comment section below, or email me at himahearts@gmail.com.
