Assembling the Trifle

  1. Cut the brownies into small 1" cubes.

  2. Place half the brownie pieces in a layer in the bottom of the trifle dish.

  3. Add half the cheesecake mixture on top of the brownie layer. Place it in the middle and spread it to the sides with an offset spatula so that your edges are clean.

  4. Place half of the crumbled Oreos around the outside of the bowl.

  5. Spoon half of the ganache into the center of the circle made by the Oreos.

Recipe Notes

  1. I used most of 2 16oz tubs of Cool Whip
  2. I used all but 3 cookies from the family size pack of Oreos
  3. You can melt your chocolate chips in the microwave but I don't recommend it. I have broken a lot of chocolate that way and no one wants to waste chocolate.
