Looking for a delicious dessert to feed a crowd? This Black Forest Trifle is my go-to dessert for BBQs, potlucks and large family get-togethers. It’s big enough to feed a large group of people, and the chocolate mousse, brownie chunks and Skor bar crumble are always a hit with everyone!
Above all that, it’s super-easy to make! You can make this dessert in a matter of minutes with just 5 easy ingredients!
To make this black forest trifle, you’ll need:
Preparing the trifle:
- 1 540 mL can cherry pie filling
- 1 1L Cool Whip (thawed)
- 1 pkg brownie mix
- 2 pkgs chocolate mousse
- 4 Skor bars
Bake, cool and crumble your brownies.
Prepare chocolate mousse according to directions on package.
Crush 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 in the following order:
- 1/2 crumbled brownies,
- 1/2 cherry pie filling
- 1/2 chocoloate mousse
- 1/2 cool whip
- 1/2 crushed skor pieces
Repeat layers with the remaining ingredients, and you’re done!
