Nutella Brownie Mousse Trifle

 I hope you’ll forgive me for making this post short and sweet.
You see, we’re in a bit of a time warp here. It’s actually 3:02am about a week and a half ago, and I’m going on 15 hours of consecutive blogging.
Don’t be confused. This is just be planning ahead for the first time ever.
We’re moving in 6 days (which is actually 2 days ago– still with me?), and nothing, I repeat: nothing is packed.

The problem is that we’ve known we were going to be moving for so long that it kind of crept up on us. For so long, the move was so far away. And it wasn’t until yesterday that we realized it was only a week away (actually present time)!
It’s ok, it’s ok. We’re still living that college life in apartments– so we can totally pack up in 6 days. But pack up in 6 days and still blog full time? That’s a different scenario. So I’m practically pulling an all-nighter here and trying to schedule posts out for about 2 weeks marathon-blogging style.

The good news is that I’m almost done! And with this out of the way, I think I can focus on packing (er, unpacking now, I guess…).
Besides, what kind of an introduction does this dessert really need anyway?
Nutella? Mousse? Triffle?! Fuhgeddaboutit!
(….is that how that word is supposed to go? Do you get what I’m saying? Meh. It’s 3am. My words are getting a little jumbled. You’ll forgive me, right?)

  1. Hi there, can you please tell me if you can use fresh whipped cream in this recipe? I live in New Zealand and we don’t have cool whip here.

    I appreciate your time, thank you so much.

    • You can use fresh whipped cream, but you would need to serve pretty quickly after making it (like, within 30 minutes probably) and it wouldn’t keep in the fridge overnight, as fresh whipped cream deflates.

  2. Sounds so delicious- as soon as I get time I’m whipping this one up!

    Love it !!! Tried it very easy

  4. This looks delicious! Anything with nutella has to be! I made a nutella milkshake about a week ago and I’ve made it a few times since! It’s really easy to make and so yummy; here’s a quick link to the recipe: http://justonemorebiteblog.wordpress.com/2013/08/30/nutella-milkshake/

  5. Hi Ashton, I was just wondering, how pronounced is the Nutella flavor? I know it’s really easy to dull the Nutella when you combine it with other ingredients, and I’d like to have an intense Nutella flavor. Thanks!

    Our family loves Nutella! Always excited to see more recipes including it. Thanks!

  7. Quick question.
    You say 16oz Cool Whip (for layering).
    Then, recipe says to use 1/2, then remaining Cool Whip in the mousse.
    Is that another 16oz container in addition?
    So, 32oz total needed?
    Thanks!
    Looks great! Making to bring to dinner tomorrow.
    Don’t want to mess it up.

  8. I made this today for work. I did modify a tiny bit, and doubled the recipe, using an entire pan of brownies. The entire bowl was eaten!! Such a compliment, thank you for the recipe!

    Just notes on the tweaks I made.
    I used box brownies and baked them. When the recipe called for water, I used hot water, mixing instant coffee into it. I also used walnuts in my brownies. I used real whipping cream as well instead of cool whip. The dessert turned out delicious!

    • I wanted to be sure and thank you for the recipe as well. It is now my go-to dessert to take to friends’ homes for dinner! Thank you! I, too, have tried some modifications.
      -We really aren’t fond of Cool Whip, so I went ahead and made my own whipped cream. It worked great for the whole evening. The next day it was less desirable, but there wasn’t much left anyway, b/c it was so yummy!
      -I also tried mixing the Nutella in the whipped cream, as I didn’t really taste it all that much in the pudding. This enhanced the flavor a bit, and I made this an additional layer. Mmmm!
      Again, thank you!
