Cookies and Cream Trifle

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.

  1. 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.

  1. Once brownies are cool, cut them into 1 inch squares.
  2. To assemble trifle, Place half of the brownie squares at the bottom of trifle dish.

    I’m just wondering why you chose to use sweetened condensed milk and water to mix the pudding? I ask because I would rather not use the extra sugar that’s in the sweetened condensed milk. When ever I can I like to cut extra sugar out of my diet. Is it for extra creaminess? I already use half and half to make my sugar free pudding because it’s lower in carbs (though higher in fat) and it mixes up much better. Or is it a flavor component?
