Oreo Brownie Trifle and Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

Like most newlyweds, at least I imagine, I was dying to use my new wedding and shower presents. Our very close friend had a coming home party from serving our country in Afghanistan for the Marines. As soon as I heard about the party, I started day dreaming of the goodies I wanted to make! 

Here are 2 of the treats I made, with a patriotic twist!

Oreo Brownie Trifle
Star shaped brownie for our Marine!

Oreo Brownie Trifle

  • Family sized box of brownie mix (I used a 9x13 pan)
  • Ingredients to make the brownies (eggs, water and oil)
  • 3.4 oz. box Cookies and Cream pudding mix
  • 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 8 oz. container Cool Whip
  • Oreos (as many as you want to add)
  • 8 oz. container of Cool Whip (yep, another one)
  1. Make the brownies and set aside to cool. TIP: make the night before (or earlier in the day) and put in freezer. Brownies will be easier to cut when frozen.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat the cookies and cream pudding mix, water and sweetened condensed milk until thick. Fold in the first tub (8 oz.) of Cool Whip. Set aside.
  3. Cut the cooled brownies into small squares and shapes if desired (about 1x1).
  4. Layer the brownies, cookies and cream pudding mixture, whipped cream and crushed Oreos.
  5. Repeat layers again and top with crushed Oreos and brownies. 
  6. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries
Add a blueberry on top for a patriotic look! 

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries

This is really simple...

1.) Wash and cut off tops of strawberries
2.) Use a strawberry stem remover tool to remove centers
3.) I used store bought, already made cheesecake. Put in a bag, cut of the corner to make a piping bag.
4.) Pipe cheesecake into strawberries
5.) Top with a blueberry

Recipe: myself :)
