This shop and my Butterfinger Brownie Trifle recipe have been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone – but the deliciousness can easily be yours! #mixinmoments #CollectiveBias

Trifle recipes are some of my favorite.  Most parties, BBQs or potlucks we attended had one, and often is was made by my Mom.  Hers were mostly chocolate, though sometimes she experimented with new flavor combinations.

My Butterfinger Brownie Trifle recipe comes together in just 3 easy steps!

I’m not sure why I don’t make them as often as my Mom did.   For the minimal amount of prep and cooking time, they have a big visual payoff.  All those different layers look – and taste! – so yummy. 

Butterfinger Brownie Trifle Recipe

Butterfinger Brownie Trifle with Nestle Toll House Baking Mixes

One of hubs favorite desserts is brownies.  So when I got my most recent craving for a trifle I decided to switch up my Mom’s tried-and-true chocolate and candy bar combo by using brownies for my base.  You’ll love how quickly these come together!

Butterfinger Brownie Trifle with Nestle Toll House Baking Mixes

My Mom’s trifle recipe always called for crushed candy, too, but with these new Nestle Toll House Baking Mixes I found at Meijer, I can skip worrying about smashing the counter (or my fingers).  They include a bag of either chocolate morsels or Butterfinger pieces, depending on which of the four varieties (Brownies & More with Butterfinger or morsels, or Cookies & More with Butterfinger  or morsels) you purchase.  These versatile mixes have no artificial flavors or colors, too.

Because there are candy pieces baked right into the brownies (yum!) I skipped adding more crushed candy on top of each whipped cream layer.  You can definitely layer it in if you’d like, though.  Try peanut butter pudding in place of the chocolate pudding for a different flavor twist, too.
