The Irresistible Chocolate Trifle: A No-Bake Treat in Minutes

Calling all chocolate lovers! This recipe for Chocolate Trifle is a dream come true. It's a no-bake dessert that's surprisingly easy to make yet incredibly impressive. Layers of rich brownies, creamy chocolate pudding, and fluffy whipped cream come together to create a textural and flavor explosion in every bite.


  • The Brownie Base:

    • 1 package (19.8 oz) brownie mix - This convenient mix is the foundation for your decadent layers. Bake the brownies according to the package instructions and let them cool completely before assembling the trifle. Cutting them into 1-inch squares will create the perfect bite-sized pieces.
  • The Creamy Chocolate Heart:

    • 1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix - This magic powder transforms into a quick and easy chocolate filling, ready to be layered between the brownies and whipped cream.
    • ½ cup water - Thins the pudding mix to the desired consistency for a smooth and luxurious texture.
    • 1 can of sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces) - Adds sweetness and richness to the pudding, creating a perfectly balanced chocolatey center.
  • The Whipped Dream:

    • 1 container (8 ounces), skin-covered, thawed whipped cream - Half of this delightful topping will be folded into the pudding for a lighter texture, while the other half is reserved for a beautiful finishing touch.
    • 1 (12 ounce) container frozen, whipped topping, thawed - This adds an extra layer of fluffy sweetness and helps create a dreamy, cloud-like texture.
  • The Chocolatey Finish (Optional):

    • 1 (1.5 ounce) chocolate candy bar - Shaved or chopped, this adds an elegant and flavorful garnish, taking your trifle to the next level.


  1. Bake the Brownie Base (Prepare in Advance): Whip up a batch of brownies according to the package instructions. Remember, patience is key! Let the brownies cool completely before assembling the trifle. Once cool, cut them into 1-inch squares for easy layering.

  2. Creating the Dreamy Chocolate Filling: In a large bowl, whisk together the instant chocolate pudding mix, water, and sweetened condensed milk. Keep whisking until everything is smooth and creamy. This decadent mixture will be the heart of your trifle.

  3. Folding in the Whipped Delight: Gently fold 8 ounces of the thawed whipped cream into the chocolate pudding mixture. Be careful not to overmix! You want to maintain some air in the whipped cream to achieve a light and fluffy texture for the overall trifle.

  4. Assembling Your Masterpiece: Choose a beautiful trifle dish or a large glass bowl for your creation. Start by creating the first layer with half of the brownie squares spread evenly on the bottom. Top it with half of the chocolate pudding mixture you just prepared.

  5. More Layers, More Flavor: Now comes the fun part – adding more layers! Gently spread half of the remaining whipped cream on top of the pudding layer. Repeat the layering process one more time, ending with a layer of whipped cream.

  6. The Grand Chocolatey Finish (Optional): If you're feeling fancy, grab a vegetable peeler and use it to shave some chocolate from your favorite candy bar. Sprinkle the chocolate shavings over the top layer of whipped cream for an elegant and delicious garnish.

  7. Chilling for Perfection: Cover the assembled trifle and refrigerate it for at least 8 hours, or preferably overnight. This allows the flavors to meld beautifully and the brownies to soften slightly, creating the ultimate textural contrast in every bite.

  8. Serving Up a Dream: When you're ready to indulge, grab a spoon and dig into your masterpiece! This Easy Chocolate Trifle is sure to impress with its simplicity and delightful combination of textures and flavors.
