Mint Brownie and Oreo Hot Fudge Trifle

You'll need about 3/4 of the brownies. I know that's an obscure amount but I found that a 9X9-inch just wasn't enough but the full 9X13-inch pan was too much. So freeze the remaining 1/4 pan of brownies or throw them at your kids for a snack; pretty sure they won't complain. And of course I won't tell if you cut back and only use a 9X9-inch pan of brownies - chicken! I used this recipe for the Easiest Brownies in the World and because I knew they would be used in this divine trifle, I added a teaspoon of mint extract to the brownie batter.

Ingredients

  • Brownies:

  • 9

    X13 pan of brownies, cut into small cubes (see note - you only will use about 3/4 of the pan of brownies)

  • Mint Cream Cheese Whipped Cream:

  • 8

    ounces cream cheese, light or regular, softened

  • 3

    cups heavy whipping cream

  • 1-2

    teaspoons mint extract

  • 1/2

    cup powdered sugar

  • Oreos and Hot Fudge:

  • 25

    mint Oreos, coarsely chopped

  • 1/2 - 3/4

    cup hot fudge sauce, warmed slightly

  • 24

    mint oreos (I used regular because that's what I had and it was great)

  • 1

    cup hot fudge, warmed slightly

Directions

For the whipped cream, in a large bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese with about 1/2 cup of the whipped cream until the mixture is smooth. Add the mint extract and the remainder of the whipped cream gradually. Mix on high speed until the cream is whipped and the mixture is very thick and creamy. In a glass trifle dish (or large glass bowl), place in 1/3 of the brownies then 1/3 of the whipped cream, spreading evenly to the edges. Next sprinkle in a little more than 1/3 of the Oreos (about 10 chopped) and finally drizzle with 1/3 of the hot fudge sauce. Repeat that same layering process two more times (the only difference is that I only used about 4 chopped Oreos for the very final layer - so the first two layers use about 10 chopped Oreos each). Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
