For Mother’s Day last week, I really wanted to make my mom a delicious dessert. Chocolate is my mom’s love language… haha just kidding… but seriously, this woman LOVES chocolate.
Thats where this idea was born. It turned out fantastic and everyone raved about it! The Oreos soften up perfectly to make each bite rich and creamy. The brownies add an extra blast of chocolate and chewiness. I love the chilled brownie in this recipe. It adds such a nice texture to the creaminess of the Cookies and Cream moose and cool whip.
Looking for a delicious crowd pleaser?! Well then, this is the recipe for you!
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 cup sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- ½ cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1⅓ cups flour
- ½ tsp. salt
- 1 (4.2 oz.) box Cookies and Cream Instant Jello Pudding Mix, dry, do not prepare
- ½ cup water
- 1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
- 1 (8 oz.) tub cool whip, thawed to room temp
- 1 (12 oz.) tub cool whip
- 1 (15.35 oz.) Package Double Stuffed Oreos, about 30 cookies. crush cookies into both small and larger pieces.
- hot fudge
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Add cocoa, flour and salt and mix until well combined. DO NOT OVERBEAT! Pour into a greased 9x13 baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes. Let cool COMPLETELY.
- Whisk Cookies and Cream Instant Jello Pudding mix, water and sweetened condensed milk together in a large bowl for about 2 minutes. Fold in 8 oz. tub of cool whip until no streaks are present. Stir in some extra crushed Oreo pieces as needed. I added about 5 cookies worth to the mixture. Cover and store in fridge until ready to assemble trifle.
- Once brownies are cool, cut them into 1 inch squares.
- To assemble trifle, Place half of the brownie squares at the bottom of trifle dish.
- Next spread half of the Cookies and Cream Mousse over the top of brownies.
- Sprinkle half of crushed Oreos over the top of mousse.
- Spread half of the 12 oz. tub of cool whip over the top of the Oreo crumbs.
- Repeat layers 1 more time only reverse the crushed Oreo layer and cool whip layer so that the Oreo crumbs garnish the top of the trifle and rest on top of the cool whip layer.
- Chill in fridge for at least a couple hours and until ready to serve.
- Scoop into bowls and top with hot fudge.
