Our Raspberries & Cream Brownie Trifles Recipe Is Layered with Luscious Flavor

These treats are almost too pretty to eat!

Want a sweet treat sure to brighten any day? These raspberries and cream brownie trifles are the perfect dessert for serving up at a backyard BBQ or post dinner party. We layer fresh raspberries with whipped cream and cubes of from-scratch brownies into skinny glasses for a presentation-worthy dessert that preps up in just 20 minutes! The best part? We sneak espresso powder into the brownie batter for a hint of coffee flavor and a slight pick-me-up! If you’ve given this trifle a try, comment below to let us know. 

Want to cut that tray of brownies into perfect cubes to make these trifles even more eye-catching? The fix: Tear off two sheets of foil a little longer/wider than the pan, lay one on the bottom of the pan and cross the other in the opposite direction; add batter and bake. Once cool, use the foil “handles” to lift the bar out in one piece, which allows for neater slicing.
