Brownie Butterscotch Trifles

Recipe By Tessa Arias
November 1st, 2013

Brownie Butterscotch Trifles have layers of chewy brownie chunks, butterscotch pudding, and fresh whipped cream for an elegant dessert.

Yield: 8 servings

Tessa's Recipe Rundown...

Taste: Love the combination of chocolate and butterscotch!
Texture: Chewy, fudgy, thick, creamy, smooth, and light.
Ease: The brownie and butterscotch pudding can be made ahead of time. This recipe does dirty quite a few dishes, though.
Appearance: Simple yet elegant. I love the individual trifle bowls.
Pros: Perfect dessert recipe for entertaining!
Cons: Takes a bit of hands-on time.
Would I make this again? Yes.

    Chocolate and Butterscotch isn’t a combination that I see very often, but this looks like the perfect scenario.

      Happy to hear that! Yeah that pudding can be a little time consuming but it’s about a thousand times better than that powdered stuff right?!
