BLACK FOREST TRIFLE





This recipe was inspired by my friend Kelly, a Pampered Chef Consultant.  You can check her out here!

There are 3 parts to this trifle:
  • My Yummy Brownies-recipe below
  • Three 21-ounce cans of cherry pie filling
  • Fresh whipped cream-recipe below
Then you just layer them in a pattern: brownies,  whipped cream, cherries, etc. 



Brownies:
4 eggs
1 1/4 cups Hershey's unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 1/4 cups sugar  
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 350 and line 9"x13" pan with nonstick foil. In a large bowl, add 4 eggs, and beat with cocoa, salt, baking powder, and vanilla. Stir until fully combined and smooth. In the microwave, melt butter. When melted, add sugar, and stir to combine. Add warm butter/sugar mixture to the egg/cocoa mixture, stirring until smooth. Add the flour and stir until fully incorporated. Spread batter into prepared pan, and smooth as needed. Bake brownies about 30 minutes. Test for doneness by inserting a toothpick.  You should find moist crumbs. Cool and cut. Top with some cool whip and a cherry!

 

Whipped Cream:

Beat 3 cups heavy cream and 1 cup powdered sugar until thick!

Simple and delicious. And, it's no wonder..chocolate, cherries, and whipped cream were just meant to be together! DH and I loved it!

In this recipe would I be able to substitute the chery pie filing for strawberry pie filing. Going on a vacation and will not have my regular kitchen tools.
