Recipe: Caramel Brownie Toffee Trifle

February is coming up on us fast… and the Super Bowl isn’t the only day we celebrate…. we have Valentine’s Day… followed by Fat Tuesday… so desserts are definitely on the agenda….

This dessert is a nice and easy dessert that can finish a romantic dinner or can be a family affair… after all… Valentine’s Day is for kids too.

Caramel Brownie Toffee Trifle is loaded with flavor…. a moist fudgy brownie…. with caramel drizzled over it… followed by whipped cream…. toffee bits…. rich chocolate pudding … finished off with more whipped cream and toffee bits…. and of course… capped with a cherry on top!


You can make brownies from scratch…. or use the boxed variety…. the same goes for the chocolate pudding …. use my recipe for chocolate pudding… or make it from a boxed mix… you can use the instant variety… although… I think the cooked kind has a better chocolate flavor… and finally you can use a frozen whipped topping such as Cool Whip…. or make my recipe for Chantilly Cream….

You can make all the parts ahead and assemble it when you plan to serve it…

Making the parts of this trifle from scratch really doesn’t take long and really tastes so much better… and after all…. Valentine’s Day is special.

You can find toffee bits in the baking aisle in the grocery store.

If using my recipes… you should be able to get 4-6 servings, depending on the size glass you use…. If you’re making this for two…. leftovers are always wonderful…

Thanks! I agree... it is best to use these type of dessert glasses... and they were relatively inexpensive... I think you can find them at Walmart....I use them for a lot of desserts...
