Another version of chocolate trifle recipe with coffee liqueur added to the brownies for a different rich flavor.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (19.8 ounce) package brownie mix
  • ¼ cup water
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup coffee-flavored liqueur (such as Kahlua®), or to taste
  • 1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding and pie filling mix
  • 2 cups cold milk
  • 1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. 2 Mix the brownie mix, water, vegetable oil, and eggs together in a mixing bowl until smooth, and pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.
  3. 3 Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the brownies shows moist crumbs, 25 to 30 minutes. Set the brownies aside, and cool completely. Use a chopstick or the end of a wooden spoon to poke holes all over the brownies, about 1/2-inch apart; drizzle the coffee liqueur all over the brownies. Let the brownies stand 5 minutes to soak up the liqueur.
  4. 4 In a bowl, whisk the chocolate pudding mix with cold milk until thickened, about 2 minutes; allow to stand 5 more minutes to set.
  5. 5 To assemble dessert, cut the brownies up into small cubes. Layer 1/3 of the brownies into the bottom of a glass trifle bowl, and top with a layer of pudding, then a layer of whipped topping. Repeat twice more, ending with whipped topping. Chill at least 4 hours before serving.

  6. Well, I followed the general concept of this but added more "stuff", and it was DELICIOUS! I only used 1/4 cup Kahlua mixed with 1/4 cup of coffee to keep the alcohol to a bare minimum, and instead of cool whip I made home-made sweetened whipped cream, and I used chocolate fudge flavored pudding mix. - Read more ...
