Berry Brownie Trifle

Berry Brownie Trifle

Happy Valentine’s Day! We like Valentine’s Day, but we keep the holiday simple. We usually make a special meal at home, which of course includes dessert. This year we are celebrating the day of love with a Berry Brownie Trifle.

We used our favorite King Arthur Flour fudge brownies for the base of our trifle.  We layered brownies, mixed berries, raspberry jam, and whipped cream to create this decadent trifle. We topped the dessert off with extra berries and chocolate shavings. I love making trifles because they are easy to make, but stunning to serve.

We made one individual trifle to share, I know, we are so romantic, but feel free to make a large one to serve a crowd. If you are looking for a special dessert to serve to your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day, make a Berry Brownie Trifle. You will for sure earn brownie points:)

Don’t forget about our Tanga magazine deals and our $200 gift card giveaway to Williams Sonoma! Visit this post for details.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
