Chocolate Brownie Trifle Recipe

Today’s Chocolate Brownie Trifle Recipe is brought to you by Emily of Is This Really My Life and of course Where Women Cook.  One look at this recipe may put you into a chocolate coma but, it’s totally worth it.  I love the idea of giving many dessert options during the holidays like Christmas and and Thanksgiving.  I think we should all add this to our list.

From Emily:

“When I asked my now 15-year-old daughter what cake she’d most like for her birthday, she requested this super decadent chocolate brownie trifle. This chocolate trifle is not for the faint of heart, but if you dare to give it a taste, your sweet tooth will thank you…multiple times over.

So will your dentist.”
