Birthday Trifle

yum!
yum!

It is pretty much a well-known fact that I don’t really bake!!!

However, birthdays call for a special dessert and the birthday person gets to decide what they want.  The past few years, it seems like my boys have gotten away from the traditional cake – fine with me!

This year Hunter wanted a trifle!!!  He didn’t care what kind – just something with chocolate.

I actually like to make trifles because it is just a matter of layering some ingredients!!  At Christmas I usually make a couple – one with some chocolate and a fruit one of some sort.

This trifle ended up being an Oreo Trifle.

Ingredients:
*  brownies (I used a mix to make a pan)
*  2 boxes of instant chocolate pudding (and milk to prepare them according to directions)
*  2 cartons of Cool Whip
*  Oreos – I think I used about 20-25

Make the brownies according to package directions and let cool.  (Or, feel free to make homemade brownies!!)  When they are cool, cut them into small squares.

Mix the pudding and milk.  Let set in the refrigerator about an hour.  Also, if you just put the Cool Whip in the fridge until you are ready to assemble the trifle it will be easier!

Put the Oreos in a large Zip-Loc baggie and crunch up.

Assemble the trifle:
1/2 the brownies
1/2 the pudding
1 carton of Cool Whip
1/2 the cookies
Repeat layers

Hunter was very happy with his birthday trifle!!!
