Brownie Trifle

If you are having a big group over for a party, there’s a year round dessert guests devour. If you are in a hurry, you can find a good bakery and buy the brownies or make them yourself. Either way, once you layer them with whipped cream and toffee bars, you have a spectacular dessert. This recipe comes from our good friend, Wesley, who also is the creator of the best skirt steak and chicken marinade in the world.


  • 3 cups of heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of Grand Marnier
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 6 large brownies, crumbled (see below) — you can also buy brownies at a specialty bakery
  • 6 Skor or Heath bars, chopped

Making It

  • Pour the cream, vanilla, Grand Marnier and sugar into the bowl of your mixer fitter with the whisk, turn to medium high until peeks have formed in the whipped cream, set aside
  • In your trifle dish, layer the bottom with1/2 of the crumbled brownies, 1/3 of your toffee bars, and layer 1/2 the whipped cream, then the rest of the brownies, 1/2 of the toffee and then the rest of the whipped cream. Finish the top with the remaining chopped toffee bars

Salted Toffee and M&M Brownies

These brownies are rich and delicious for anytime of the year but perfect for cold weather days.  The base of the recipe comes from Ina Garten’s delicious “outrageous brownies” that were a main staple in her iconic shop, Barefoot Contessa.  Since I have never liked walnuts in brownies we switched them out with mini M&Ms…
