  • 1 box mix brownies - prepared
  • 1 tbsp instant coffee crystals
  • 2 cups heavy cream


  • First, make a pan of your favorite brownies from a box mix and allow to cool.  While the brownies are cooling, make your Mocha Whipped Cream that you'll mix into the trifle layers.
  • How to make mocha whipped cream
  • Dissolve 1 Tablespoon of Folgers Instant Coffee into 1 Tablespoon boiling water and allow to cool.  Place two cups of heavy whipping cream into a metal mixing bowl that has been chilled well in the freezer.
  • Note: having a chilled bowl is key to perfectly whipped cream.
  • Add 2 Tablespoons of sugar to the heavy mixing cream and whip on high until stiff peaks form. Once your cream resembles the light and fluffy stuff we all love, fold in the coffee mixture - mixing well.  
  • Now that your whipped cream is made, cut your brownies into bite-size pieces and begin to layer into the bottom of a wide mouth mason jar.
  • Add a layer of whipped cream and then a layer of brownies, then another layer of whipped cream.  Top with pieces of brownies to decorate!
