Brownie Oreo Chocolate Trifle

I found this recipe on pinterest and it was such a hit! It was slightly time consuming though, as you have to bake the brownies ahead of time, let them cool and then cut them for the bottom layer. And you should let it sit for maybe a day before serving - so keep all of that in mind before making!

What You Need:
1 box of fudge brownies (I prefer Betty Crocker supreme fudge) + box requirements to make
1 bar (8 oz) of cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 stick (1/4 cup) of butter, softened
3 cups of milk (to make pudding)
2 small packages of instant fudge chocolate pudding
16 oz tub of Cool Whip
8 oz tub of Cool Whip
1 box of oreos, crushed

What You Do:
Prepare brownies as directed on box
Let brownies cool
Cut into bite sized pieces (don't use the hard edge pieces)

Blend together cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar (use a large bowl because everything will be mixed together with this)

In a separate bowl blend pudding mix and milk

 Add pudding to cream cheese mixture and mix well. 

Fold in 12 oz of cool whip (*sidenote: original recipe called for a 12 oz tub of cool whip, I couldn't find a tub that size + used the extra for the topping of the trifle)

 Begin layers: you will use 1/2 the brownies on the bottom of the dish, followed by half of the pudding-cream cheese mixture, then half of the crushed oreos and then the half of the cool whip. Repeat this using the other half of the supplies, it will make a total of 8 layers. Save a little bit of crushed oreos to garnish the top. 

Chill in the fridge until serving. Best if made the night before or the morning before serving so that it can sit and the cookies can soften.
