Brownie and Oreo Trifle

 There's a chain of recipes on my blog right now, using leftovers from previous blogged recipes!  I made brownies to use for these cookies and had leftovers.  What to do with the leftover brownies?  With lots of holiday cookies in the house, I needed to find something to do with them besides eat them.  I also had some Trader Joe Joe Joe cookies on hand.  If you haven't had them, they're like an Oreo, only peppermint.  Sounds like a perfect combination for a trifle.  Trifles are an easy but great dessert for a dinner party!  Instead of making them in a trifle dish, I made mine in individual glasses. 



Brownie and Oreo Hot Fudge Trifle
Yield: Serves 12-14
    Brownies:
  • 9X13 pan of brownies, cut into small cubes (see note - you only will use about 3/4 of the pan of brownies)
  • Cream Cheese Whipped Cream:
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, light or regular, softened
  • 3 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • Oreos and Hot Fudge:
  • 25 mint Oreos, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 - 3/4 cup fudge sauce, warmed slightly
Directions
  1. For the whipped cream, in a large bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese with about 1/2 cup of the whipping cream until the mixture is smooth. Add the powdered sugar and the remainder of the whipping cream gradually. Mix on high speed until the cream is whipped and the mixture is very thick and creamy.
  2. In a glass trifle dish (or large glass bowl), place in 1/3 of the brownies then 1/3 of the whipped cream, spreading evenly to the edges. Next sprinkle in a little more than 1/3 of the Oreos (about 10 chopped) and finally drizzle with 1/3 of the hot fudge sauce.
  3. Repeat that same layering process two more times
  4. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
