I said I would use up the rest of the brownie pieces in something and here it is. P loves trifles, I mean LOVES them. Now he didn't even know what a trifle was until he met me but now that he does he can't get enough. So these are Fake out trifles because I use a fake out mousse. This can dessert can be thrown together in minutes and stored in the fridge for a few days. This is my go to dessert in the summer because its easy and looks beautiful with minimal effort. Follow any one of the variations listed below for a more refreshing summer dessert. But the chocolate and strawberry combination is fantastic and the chocolate chips give it a nice texture.
Fake out Trifles
Left over Brownie Pieces from Never look back Brownies
1 box of Instant Jello Pudding, Chocolate Fudge flavor
1 1/2 cups of heavy cream
2 teaspoons of powdered sugar
20-25 strawberries sliced lengthwise
Prepare the Jello according to the package directions. And set aside to thicken.
Pour the heavy cream into the bowl of mixer and whip on medium speed until it start to thicken slightly and then sprinkle in the powdered sugar. Turn the mixer to high and whip until you have stiff peaks. Add 1/3 of the whipped cream into the pudding and stir to combine to lighten the texture of the pudding. Once that is combined add in the rest of the whipped cream and fold to combine. Once you have folded in all of the whipped cream, set it aside.
In the bottom of you dish cover the bottom with the brownie pieces, then layer on the faux mousse, then layer on the strawberries. Repeat until the dish is full and try to have either the mousse as the top or the strawberries.
I do this in many variations but the same basic idea. I do one with angel food cake, and lemon pudding and raspberries and blackberries. And one with and orange pound cake, cheesecake pudding and strawberries.
