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.



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.)

Do you have a favorite holiday recipe?

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.
