Ingredients

Ingredients for Oreo Trifle - brownie mix, eggs, cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla, cool whip, Oreo cookies, chocolate pudding, chocolate sauce, oreo cookies.

Brownies

  • Brownie Mix. The package needs to be about 18 ounces.
  • Eggs. I used large eggs.

Oreo Cheesecake Filling

  • Cream Cheese. Softened at room temperature so it’s easier to mix.
  • Powdered Sugar. Sift to remove any lumps if needed.
  • Vanilla extract. Use pure vanilla.
  • Cool Whip. You can use store brand whipped topping.
  • Crushed Oreos. Crush the Oreos by placing them in a food processor or Ziploc bag.

Pudding

  • Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix. Make sure to use instant pudding.
  • Milk. The milk needs to be cold.

Topping  

  • Chocolate Sauce. Store bought is fine or you can use Hot Fudge Sauce Recipe.
  • Oreos. Crushed into large pieces.

Variations

  • Brownies. Substitute Easy One Bowl Brownies if you prefer to use homemade brownies instead of a box mix.
  • Oreo Cookies. You can use other variations such as peanut butter, Nutella Oreo cookies and others.
  • Cake. Swap the brownies for chocolate cake.
  • Pudding. Homemade Chocolate Pudding is another option.

Step By Step Instructions

  • Step 1. Get started by preheating the oven to 350 degrees and line a 9X9 baking dish with parchment paper.

Step 3. Once mixed together, spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the brownies comes out clean.  Don’t overcook them so you have fudgy brownies.

Storage

Cover in plastic wrap and place in the fridge up to 3 days. Any longer and the ingredients will get soggy.

Expert Tips

  • Cut the Brownies evenly. Try to cut the brownies into about 1 inch cubes.
  • Smooth each layer. I like to use an offset spatula to smooth the layers. This makes it look so pretty in the trifle dish.
  • Don’t overmix. Carefully combine the cream cheese mixture. Don’t overmix so it is still light and fluffy.
  • Individual desserts. Arrange the mixture into clear cups to make individual desserts for parties and more.
  • Make ahead. This trifle can be assembled a day in advance.
  • More flavors. Try other combinations such as this Easy Blondie Recipe, Homemade Vanilla Pudding Recipe and Golden Oreos.
