What to do when baked goods taste good but don’t look as planned? Make trifle I say! This is exactly what I decided to do yesterday when the Ginger Macadamia Brownies did not come out as expected. Brian suggested I use the brownie to make something else. He said, “Can’t you crumble them up or something?” I though AHA! Crumbled brownies=delicious trifle. So I set to work to make an easy trifle with the crumbled up brownies.
You can use this method with just about any baked good that goes awry. Just change the flavors of pudding or add fruit or liquor…whatever your heart desires!
Ginger Macadamia Brownie Trifle
1 recipe Ginger Macadamia Brownies, crumbled
2 boxes sugar free, fat free chocolate pudding
3 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 cups heavy cream
2 Tablespoons agave
Chocolate shavings for garnish
Pour pudding mix and almond milk into a large bowl. Using a handheld mixer, beat until pudding has achieved desired consistency. Set aside (or refrigerate). In a separate large bowl, combine heavy cream and agave. Using a handheld mixer, beat until cream reaches soft peaks.
To make the trifle: in a trifle dish or large glass bowl, layer the crumbled brownies, pudding, and whipped cream. Then repeat. Top the trifle with chocolate shavings for garnish. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
