Looking for an easy but delicious dessert that will feed a crowd? This 5-Ingredient Black Forest Trifle is one of my go-to desserts for BBQs, potlucks and large family get-togethers.
This simple dessert tastes AMAZING, and it’s big enough to feed a large group of people.
The chocolate mousse, brownie chunks and Skor bar topping are always a hit with everyone!
Everyone always asks for the recipe for this one!
You’re really going to love how easy it is to make this trifle. You’d never guess from looking at it.
That’s the beauty of it. People will think you went all out, when really, it only took you a few minutes to put together.
To make this black forest trifle, you’ll need:
- 1 540 mL can cherry pie filling
- 1 1L Cool Whip (thawed)
- 1 pkg brownie mix
- 2 pkgs chocolate mousse
- 4 Skor bars
To make your trifle:
Bake, cool and crumble your brownies.
Prepare the chocolate mousse according to directions on package.
Crush your Skor bars (I put them in a large sealable bag and smash them with the can of pie filling).
Assembling your trifle:
In a large trifle bowl (or large glass salad bowl), layer the ingredients a couple of times. For example, brownies, mousse, cherries, Cool Whip & repeat. Top with Skor pieces.
Your layers don’t have to be in any particular order. There’s no right or wrong way to put this trifle together. It will look gorgeous no matter how you layer everything, but you do want to end with the Cool Whip, and then top it with the Skor pieces.
Yummmm! Black Forest Trifle! How easy was that?
Keep your trifle refrigerated.
