I had big plans for a great blog post with a recipe that was supposed to be quick and easy and used a store bought brownie mix. Well, I couldn’t get the brownies out of the pan. So I did what any enterprising cook might do and I scooped them out of the pan with a spoon and stared at the bowl of crumbled brownies until I could think of a way to not let them go to waste. Individual Brownie Parfaits. A giant trifle would have worked here too but since my son doesn’t like strawberries (I know…who doesn’t like strawberries???) and my daughter is away at summer school, and I didn’t want to be the one picking at a gigantic trifle for days on end, I decided to make individual sized servings. I did something similar to this a few weeks ago just minus the brownies. Here you go.
Brownie Trifle Parfait
1 brownie mix
Jello Pudding Cups (chocolate or vanilla)
Whipped Cream or Cool Whip
fresh sliced strawberries
Bake up your favorite brownie mix. Let cool in the pan. Cut a serving sized piece of brownie and break half of it into your serving dish. I like to use my goblet glasses. Scoop half of the pudding on top of the crumbled brownies. Slice 3 or four strawberries and put on top of the pudding layer. Then add a layer of whipped cream or Cool Whip. Repeat with another layer of brownie, pudding, strawberries, and whipped cream/Cool Whip. Top with a strawberry sliced in half.
Easy. Happy Husband.
