A favorite of the men in my house who love their 3 Musketeers®. It is a quick and easy dessert that looks and tastes fantastic. It's also flexible. You can make numerous substitutions such as Cool Whip® for whipping cream for a sweeter trifle or milk for half-and-half. Any bite-size candy can be substituted. French vanilla pudding mix or other favorite can be substituted for white chocolate pudding mix. Make it your own.

  • Combine brownie mix, vegetable oil, eggs, and water in a bowl until batter is smooth; fold in chocolate chips. Spread batter into the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges have started to pull away from the sides of the pan, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool brownies completely. Cut into bite-size pieces.

  • Beat cream cheese in a large bowl using an electric mixer until smooth. Beat 1/2 cup half-and-half into cream cheese until incorporated. Beat remaining 1 1/2 cups half-and-half and pudding mix into cream cheese mixture on low speed until pudding is well blended, about 2 minutes.

  • Beat cream in a separate bowl using an electric mixer until soft peaks form; fold into pudding mixture.

  • Place a layer of brownie bites in the bottom of a trifle bowl or a large bowl with straight sides; top with a layer of pudding mixture and a layer of chocolate-covered nougat bites. Continue layering 2 or 3 more times in the same order with remaining ingredients.

Editor's Note:

The ingredients used to make the brownies are specific to Pillsbury(R) mix. Follow directions on the box if using a different brand.

Glad to find a trifle recipe that doesn t require whipped topping. I use chocolate instant pudding mix and substitute whole milk for the half and half. Crushed cookies (thin mint or Oreo) work well on top (I don t use the candy pieces called for). I like this recipe so well that I finally bought a trifle bowl. Read More
