Last week I made my sweet tooth husband a trifle for Valentine’s Day. I thought I would give you a little peek at the recipe and how I try to make all my baked goods a little “better for you” than they should be.
I think it is safe to say trifles are the easiest of the dessert options out there. Correction: Picking something pre-made up at the store is the easiest but this is second easiest! I like to call these semi homemade.
What you need:
9×13 lightly sprayed dish for baking brownies
Dark chocolate brownie mix (I use Pillsbury because they are ninety-eight cents at Walmart.)
3 egg whites
1/4 cup of water
1/2 cup of natural non sweetened applesauce
1 trifle dish
16oz fat free whipped topping
1 chocolate pudding mix
2 cups of skim milk
2 Heath Bars crushed
Combine the first four ingredients, stir them up, and pour into a greased 8×10 dish. Bake in a preheated oven (350 degrees) for 25 minutes.
While the brownies cool pour your instant chocolate pudding mix and two cups of skim milk into a bowl. With a wire wisk, wisk for two minutes. Set to the side.
Tear the brownies into one to one and half inch pieces (you can go larger if you want) and put one layer on the bottom of your trifle dish.
Next spoon on a thin layer of chocolate pudding.
Top the pudding with some crushed Heath bar.
The next layer is your whipped topping.
Start over for the mid section of the trifle.
By using egg white, apple sauce, skim milk, and fat free whip you are saving on calories and fat grams. You can always opt to make this sugar free or reduced sugar as well by choosing a sugar free brownie mix, sugar free pudding, and sugar free whip.
No matter how you make it I bet it will be divine – hello, chocolate!
