Individual Brownie Trifles

For Valentine's Day dessert we decided to try this simple and beautiful dessert! So super easy and you can't go wrong with this one. And they are so pretty! Which I love. :)

The only thing that I did differently was make my own gluten free brownies. King Arthur or Betty Crocker have great gluten free brownie mixes. Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out absolutely divine. A perfect ending to a perfect night. :)

2/3 cup whipping cream
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
8 2x2 inch purchased baked brownies, crumbled into pieces (about 2 cups)
2 cups fresh raspberries or dark sweet cherries, pitted
1 cup chocolate ice cream topping
Unsweetened cocoa powder (optional)

1. In a chilled large mixing bowl combine whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until soft peaks form; set aside.
2. Divide half of the crumbled brownies between 4 large parfait glasses or water goblets. Divide half of the raspberries, ice cream topping, and whipped cream between the glasses, creating layers. Repeat layers with remaining brownies, raspberries, ice cream topping, and whipped cream. If desired, sprinkle with cocoa powder. Serve immediately or cover and chill up to 4 hours.

Gluten free: make your own or buy pre-made gluten free brownies.
