Strawberry Brownie Trifle

I think trifles are simply wonderful and always make such a impressive dessert.   I also love that they are really easy to put together and you can make them in so many different ways.   I made this trifle with one of my go to ingredients COOL WHIP Whipped Topping.  As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program I was given the opportunity to make a dessert to showcase COOL WHIP.  The COOL WHIP Whipped Topping was a perfect way to make the custard layer of the dessert light and delicious. I layered it with brownies and fresh cut strawberries and my family and friends loved the combination of flavor.  I will definitely count this as one of my favorite and easiest trifles of all time. 

2 (8oz) Tubs of regular or lite COOL WHIP Whipped Topping
1 large (5.1oz) box of JELL-O Vanilla Pudding (or two small boxes 3.4oz)
1 box of box brownie mix (prepared to cake like instructions not fudgy)
2lbs of strawberries sliced (leave some whole for garnish on top)
1/4 cup of chocolate chips melted in microwave to drizzle on top (optional)

Step 1:  Bake box brownies or favorite scratch brownies to cake like consistency (not fudgy).  Allow brownies to cool and cut into squares. 

Step 2: Prepare JELL-O pudding per package instructions.  Then fold in 1 1/2 tubs of COOL WHIP Whipped Topping to the prepared JELL-O to make the custard layer.

 Slice strawberries.

Step 3:  Layer a trifle bowl with the cut brownies squares. Then follow with half of the custard mixture.  Next layer with half of the sliced strawberries and repeat with the brownies, custard and strawberries. Finish with a layer of plain COOL WHIP Whipped Topping and the whole strawberries to garnish. Drizzle with melted chocolate or chocolate syrup if you like.

 What you add makes it. #coolwhipmoms
