Halloween Brownie Trifle
You can also mix this holiday trifle up with the type of pie filling you desire. Use any kind of cake you want too. We just love brownies out of a box or homemade because they are chocolate chocolate and oh so delicious.
If you wanted it more of a fall treat you could use spice cake mix which would be yummy, but chocolate and cherries are amazing. You can use small trifle dishes like these or small mason jars are cute too.
It’s a fun recipe you can fool around with and kids think they look really cool. Serve them up at a party or let kids create them when they have friends over!
If you’re having a Halloween party these are great because the kids can make them themselves!
Just set out the trifle dishes and all the ingredients and let them make their own scary Halloween dessert for fun. If you love this Halloween trifle you’ve got to try this pumpkin monkey bread…perfect for the Fall!!
This can be made a number of different ways with a variety of flavors but if you keep the layers cake or brownies that keeps it easy. Of course that isn’t the traditional method but I like to keep things as easy as possible. If you wanted a more old fashioned method, use this Christmas trifle recipe here.
Adding fruit to the layers, candies, sprinkles, I mean the options are seriously endless. During the winter months I like to use pie filling like you see here since we can’t find a lot of fresh produce in town then.

- Prepare cake according to directions on box. Add red and yellow food coloring to your cool whip, until desired orange hue is achieved. (I did 5 yellow, 3 red.) Fold in colors.
- Once cake has cooled, gently cut cake into one inch pieces.
- Add to a large glass serving bowl (or smaller containers). Layer the bottom with candy corn, cake, cool whip, cherries.
- Continue process until ingredients are finished and you’ve reached the top.
