Chocolate Peppermint Brownie TrifleThere’s been a lot of tasty holiday recipes this week!

Basically, we’ve just got a whole bunch of deliciousness going on! For my part, I’m sharing holiday sweet treat that peppermint fans are sure to love as this chocolate peppermint brownie dessert trifle is SO good! Peppermint Brownie TrifleThis dessert is SO easy to put together. You’ll need your favorite brownie recipe, a large box of instant chocolate pudding, Cool Whip, and peppermint candies. Bake the brownies according to the recipe (or box directions). But, make them peppermint brownies by adding in some crushed candy canes! While the brownies bake, whip up the pudding. For added peppermint flavor, mix in some finely crushed candy canes into the pudding as well. Once the brownies come out of the oven, let cool then cut into bite-sized chunks. In the bottom of a trifle dish, layer with brownies, then pudding, then Cool Whip. For even more peppermint flavor, top with crushed peppermint candy. My personal favorite peppermint candy right now are the White Chocolate Peppermint M&M’s! Seriously SO good! Repeat the layers and top with a layer of crushed peppermint candy (any will do, but I opted for the M&M’s). Chocolate Peppermint Brownie Dessert TrifleYUM! Easy to make and SO SO good! And speaking of so good, there are a whole list of delicious recipe options below.

  1. Trifles are one of my favorite desserts to make for serving a crowd or to take to a potluck. I have made a basic brownie trifle, but never added peppermint. I love the idea because it is perfect for the holidays! Thanks for sharing it.
