Holiday Berry Trifle

I made this dessert to take to a party yesterday:





It's always a big hit, and it's SO easy to make and relatively low in calories (as far as desserts go, anyway!). Thought I'd share the recipe with my readers today.


HOLIDAY BERRY TRIFLE

Ingredients

3 cups cold milk

2 pkgs. (4 oz) instant chocolate pudding/pie filling mix

1 tub (12 oz) whipped topping

1 9-inch square pan of baked brownies, cut into 1-inch squares

1 pint raspberries*



*This is what the original recipe calls for. I used a pint of blueberries and a quart of strawberries yesterday.


1. Pour milk into a large bowl and add the pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk 2 minutes. Gently stir in 2 cups of whipped topping.


2. Place 1/2 the brownies cubes into a large serving bowl. Top with 1/2 the pudding mixture, 1/2 the fruit, and 2 cups whipped topping. Repeat layers and end with remaining whipped topping.


3. Refrigerate 1 hour or until serving time.


(Incidentally, I use skim milk, low-fat brownie mix, and fat free-sugar free whipped topping, and it still tastes delicious.)

That looks simply delicious.

good call on the blue/straw berries. Rasberrys can be a bit tart/flowery.

I brought my taco pie to a party and it was gone with 10 min of coming out of the oven.
