Mint Brownie and Oreo Hot Fudge Trifle with Minty Cream Cheese Whipped Cream
9X13 pan of brownies, cut into small cubes (see note - you only will use about 3/4 of the pan of brownies)
Mint Cream Cheese Whipped Cream:
8 ounces cream cheese, light or regular, softened
3 cups heavy whipping cream
1-2 teaspoons mint extract
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Oreos and Hot Fudge:
25 mint Oreos, coarsely chopped
1/2 - 3/4 cup hot fudge sauce, warmed slightly
For the whipped cream, in a large bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese with about 1/2 cup of the whipping cream until the mixture is smooth. Add the mint extract, powdered sugar and the remainder of the whipping cream gradually. Mix on high speed until the cream is whipped and the mixture is very thick and creamy.
In a glass trifle dish (or large glass bowl), place in 1/3 of the brownies then 1/3 of the whipped cream, spreading evenly to the edges. Next sprinkle in a little more than 1/3 of the Oreos (about 10 chopped) and finally drizzle with 1/3 of the hot fudge sauce.
Repeat that same layering process two more times (the only difference is that I only used about 4 chopped Oreos for the very final layer - so the first two layers use about 10 chopped Oreos each).
Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
