Hi Bold Bakers!
IN THIS RECIPE: My Salted Caramel Chocolate Brownie Trifle recipe is layer after layer of decadent dessert goodness. You have never had anything like it before, and it’ll live in your mind forever! It’s perfect for any occasion and is incredibly easy to make.
Fun fact — this is one of my first episodes of Bigger Bolder Baking and still a favorite. It’s an over-the-top recipe I hope you’ll love with layers of homemade salted caramel sauce, fudge brownies, caramel mousse, whipped cream & a rich chocolate sauce.
I like to make mine in a giant glass trifle dish but you can make it as BIG & BOLD as you’d like. Enjoy!
What Is A Trifle?
Trifles are desserts that are built layer-upon-layer in a dish. I have recipes for a few different kinds, like my Holiday Gingerbread Trifle, my Fudge Brownie & Raspberry Trifle, and most recently, my Banana Bread Trifles! Usually, the layers consist of some sort of spongy cake or brownie, a sauce, cream, and then repeated. Apparently, we have the British to thank for them!
My Signature Salted Caramel Sauce
If you’re looking for the best-of-the-best in caramel sauces, mine is signature, so you know it’s good! I promise I did not just name it that because it sounded good. You can find that recipe here and yes, I do always have some on hand in my fridge for all occasions!
How To Make Chocolate Sauce
If you think chocolate sauce is hard to make, you need to think again. My chocolate sauce recipe only uses two ingredients and is as simple as warming them together. Chocolate + cream = heaven.
What Kind Of Brownie To Use
In this recipe, you’ll find how to make a fudge brownie, which works perfectly for this trifle recipe — but you can use any one of my brownie recipes if you wish! And do I have LOADS of different brownie recipes? Yeah, I do! Find them all here. I’ve been meaning to try making this trifle with my Chewy Brownies…

- Trifle Dish (If you wish)
How To Make Salted Caramel & Chocolate Brownie Trifle
When it comes to making this recipe, it’s all in the assembly. I’ve taken all the guesswork out of the individual components — like the making of the brownie and the sauces. It’s then up to you to layer the trifle into the order you’d like!
