Oreo Brownie Trifle

One bite of this trifle has you going back for more. It is such a perfect blend of moist fudgy brownies, sweet crunchy Oreos, and creamy mousse-like chocolate. The fluffy cool whip just ties it all together...


♦ 1 Box of Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie mix (you will need the additional ingredients listed on box)
♦ 8 oz cream cheese, softened
♦ 1 cup powdered sugar
♦ 1/4 cup of Butter, softened
♦ 3 cups milk
♦ 2 small packages of instant fudge chocolate pudding
♦ 12 oz tub Lite Cool Whip
♦ 1 Box of Oreos, Crushed (save a couple whole ones for garnish)
♦ 8 oz tub Lite Cool Whip

Prepare and bake Brownies as instructed on box. Cool Brownies completely and set aside. (I cut the outer edge of the brownie away because I didn't want any of the harder brownie in the trifle).

Blend together Cream Cheese, butter and powdered sugar until creamy.

In a separate bowl, blend milk and pudding until thick.

Add pudding to cream cheese mixture, then fold in 12 oz tub of Cool Whip.

Now you can begin layering the Trifle! Cut up the brownies in bite size squares and place one layer of brownies on the bottom of the Trifle. Then put half of the pudding cream cheese mixture on top. Sprinkle 1/2 of the crushed Oreos for the third layer. On the Oreos, put half of the 8 oz tub of cool whip. Repeat for a total of 8 layers.

Garnish the top with the rest of the Cool Whip, some Oreo "crumbs" and a couple whole Oreos. Keep refrigerated and don't eat the whole thing at once!


  1. Guess what I'm making tomorrow? UGH lol... Joshua loved this stuff so much I told him I'd make it for St. Patricks Day lol

    1. Enjoy!! Just so you know though, I think the one Joshua had at Chirstmas-time was a different version than the one above...I can't remember now...but all the versions are sooooo good regardless lol

  2. What size brownies did you use? 8x8 or 9x13?

  3. How many would you say this serves? I need to make dessert for 45. Thanks

    1. It depends on how big of a serving... but I would say between 8-10 servings. People also seem to love going back for seconds on this dessert!

  4. I just found your blog because I googled Oreo Brownie trifle. I've seen several recipes for this type of dessert, but yours sounds the best. I like how your pudding layer is more than just pudding. Sounds delicious!!! I think I am going to make this to take to my mother-in-laws on Christmas day. I plan to use candy cane Oreos to make it more festive. Thanks for the recipe!!!

    1. Thank you Hayley! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

  5. This looks delicious! How far in advance can you make it without it getting soggy?

    1. We had leftovers in our fridge for a couple days after and the oreos and brownies never got soggy. But when Ive made it, I usually make it the day before or the morning of. The oreos dont stay crunchy but they are meant to get soft. Enjoy! I love this trifle...lol
