Take 5 Brownie Trifle

Take 5 Brownie Trifle recipe

How many times a day are you legally allowed to eat ice cream?

Because I went to two separate ice cream shops yesterday and indulged at both. I don’t even like ice cream, you guys.

I didn’t let that stop me from eating a scoop of Toffee Coffee and then, later in the day, a chocolate crunch cone.

What are those little crunchy things made out of anyway? Fairy dust and unicorn poop? It’s just so delightful.

I figure that even if it is illegal to eat ice cream twice in one day, nobody would actually convict me. You guys probably haven’t noticed or anything, but it’s just a leeeeeetle warm outside lately. You know, just like 100 degrees or so. No big deal.

Take 5 Brownie Trifle recipe

So, after all of the ice cream eating, I totally turned on my oven and made brownies. Duh. Then I got sick of eating them plain and I chopped them up and turned them into trifles. Take 5 Trifles, to be exact.

You’ve had Take 5 candy bars, right? They’re fantastic. Chocolate, peanut butter, pretzels, caramel, and peanuts. Heck to the yeah.

Take 5 Brownie Trifle

I'm leaving the amounts up to you. I like lots of crunchy pretzels and a healthy dose of chocolate syrup on my trifle, but you can change it up however you like!

Ingredients:

1 recipe Peanut Butter Brownies
whipped cream
handful of pretzel pieces
peanuts
chocolate syrup
caramel ice cream topping

Directions:

Chop the brownies into bite sized pieces and place a single layer in the bottom of your serving dish (cocktail glass or mason jar for individual servings or a trifle bowl if you're serving a crowd).
Top with layer of whipped cream.
Sprinkle on the pretzels and peanuts.
Drizzle with the chocolate syrup and caramel ice cream topping.
Repeat the layers.

    I think…four times should be allowed. Or six? Especially when it’s this trifle!

    I’ve occasionally replaced very important consecutive meals with ice cream. No shame in that! OMG that trifle looks like heaven, btw.

    Not that this is helpful at all, but I am almost positive I saw how to male those crunchy thinks yourself on a blog or pintrest. You are welcome, even if I have no idea where I saw them and am currently hoping that I pinned them.

    In the summer, there IS no limit to how many times you can eat ice cream in a day. These trifles look great!

    Ice cream is required eating during the summer, don’t worry ;)
    I have never heard of take 5 chocolate before, but I just looked it up and it looks delightful. Although I think I’d prefer your trifle, yum!
