You are going to love this strawberry brownie trifle recipe! Valentines Day recipes are some of my favorites because they are sweet, delicious and cute!  While Valentines Day recipes may make you think of chocolate, it generally makes me think of red berries like raspberries, strawberries or cherries and clouds of whipped cream.  What could be better than Valentines Day recipes that actually combine chocolate, berries, and clouds of whipped cream?

Strawberry Brownie Trifle

This Strawberry Brownie Trifle recipe can be made with either red raspberries or strawberries.  Since my store didn’t have any red raspberries when I shopped this week, I decided I would create it with delicious, red strawberries instead. You could even use blueberries or peaches if you prefer instead of raspberries or strawberries.

So, what is a trifle? A trifle in English cuisine is a dessert made with fruit, a thin layer of sponge cake soaked in sherry, and custard. It can be topped with whipped cream. This strawberry brownie trifle recipe is even better than the original dessert and much simpler to make.

The brownies in this recipe can be made from scratch, purchased or made from a boxed brownie mix.  If you’re gluten intolerant, make sure that you pick up a box of gluten-free brownies to start with as your base for this brownie strawberry dessert.

I can find these regularly in my grocery store and they are so good that everyone in my family enjoys them – even those that aren’t gluten intolerant. You can use ready-made whipped topping or create your own from whipping cream. It all depends on how much time you have to devote to creating your Valentines Day recipes.

If you would prefer not to serve this in trifle glasses, you can simply cut a slice of brownie and top with berries and whipped cream. Brownies with strawberries and whipped cream still make a decadent dessert.
