If you made the Christmas trees with the brownie base, this is a fantastic recipe for using up any excess, or simply as an alternative use for the chocolate brownie base.
The brownies are such a popular recipe with my family and friends that I always make a double batch and stash half of it in the freezer for whenever I might need them. If you're looking for a five minute recipe to add a little indulgence over the holiday period... this is a fab option!
Recipe: Chocolate Brownie Trifle
Serves 2 (easily multiplied)
- 2-3 Christmas tree triangles (approximately 1 cup worth brownie chunks)
- 1/4 cup coconut milk powder
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1/4 tsp mixed spice or cinnamon (or vanilla powder if preferred)
- 1/2 cup mixed red berries- I used fresh red currants and soaked dried cranberries and gojis
Mix the coconut powder with the warm water and sauce and whisk together to ensure there are no lumps. Put the mix in the freezer briefly to chill and slightly thicken.
Meanwhile soak the cranberries and gojis (if using) in hot water and set aside. Slice the brownie into rough 2cm chunks.
When ready to assemble, drain the fruit (if soaking), divide the brownie chunks across two small bowls or glasses. Pour in the chilled coconut milk and add the fruit to finish.
