Chocolate Bliss Trifle

1 Trifle Bowl

Store-bought brownies
Store-bought pound cake
1 box instant chocolate pudding
Whole Milk
Milk or dark Chocolate Chips
¼ to ½ a cup of confectioner’s sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 bar milk or dark chocolate (for garnish)
Fresh mint for garnish

Make your pudding according to the directions on the box, and let chill for 30 minutes.

To make your fresh whipped cream: Add 2 cups of heavy cream into your stand mixer, ¼ to a ½ cup of confectioner’s sugar, and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Beat until your cream makes firm peaks.

To assemble your Trifle:
Layer 1: cubed brownies and pound cake
Layer 2: prepared chocolate pudding
Layer 3: handful of chocolate chips
Layer 4: whipped cream

Repeat 2-3 times, depending on the size of your trifle bowl.

For top layer (after your final whipped cream layer) shave some chocolate on top and add a sprig of mint for garnish (and WOW factor!)
