So I am a person of habit. I like doing certain routine things the same way every time. If I don’t, it totally throws me off. Like getting ready in the mornings, for example. I put my makeup on in the same order every time. If I don’t, I know I’ll forget something and walk out of the house with half my face missing.

My routines even help when I packing for a trip because it helps me remember what to pack as I think through each routine. If it’s not part of my routine, I’ll likely forget to pack it.

I even go through the grocery store the same way every time. I always start on the right side of the store and work my way to the left. I also tend to go up and down the aisles beginning on the same ends. Recently when I was at the store, I only needed to pick up a few things so I didn’t follow my normal patterns for a full grocery trip. I ended up on what is normally my last aisle and went down the aisle starting from a different direction. It sounds so weird but it totally threw me off! It was like I didn’t know where I was and had to stop for a second to remember what I was even doing.

Perhaps I’m also just getting old and lose my thoughts as quickly as I think them, but I’ll totally blame my weird aisle walking habits. 😉

One habit I will totally own though is my dessert habit. I’m pretty sure eating dessert after every meal became habit as a kid. Even though it isn’t so much the case as an adult (self-control is definitely learned), I still get to channel my dessert-loving habits into making fun desserts like this trifle.

How to Make This Oreo Trifle Recipe

One of my favorite cookies has always been Oreos. I mean there is just something about double stuf ones with all that goodness in there. I can’t help but add them to desserts. There’s my No Bake Oreo Cheesecake, Oreo Chocolate Layer Cake, Oreo Chocolate Cupcakes, Oreo Chocolate Poke Cake, the list goes on. Today we are keeping it nice and simple with this trifle that’s full of brownies and no bake oreo cheesecake. YUM!

To start, you’ll want to bake the brownie that you’ll use in the trifle. I doubled my favorite quick and easy brownie recipe that is super easy to throw together. Once baked and cooled, chop it up into little bite sized pieces.

Next you’ll want to make the Oreo cheesecake filling. It’s loaded with Oreo crumbs, so you’re sure to have plenty of chocolate and Oreo flavor! You’ll also need some whipped cream, chocolate sauce and more Oreos – because more Oreos = more better.

The best part is how easy it is to put trifles together. Layer everything together and you’re ready to go! I kind of like to give trifles a chance to sit in the fridge for a bit so things can all kind of come together, but if you’re in a hurry you could certainly serve it shortly after making it. The Oreo flavor is on full blast and when paired with the chewy brownies, it’s heaven in every bite.

This Oreo Cheesecake Brownie Trifle recipe is so good! It’d be perfect for a potluck or get together and will satisfy all your chocolate cravings!



  • 1 1/2 cups (336g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 cups (414g) sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups (195g) flour
  • 3/4 cup (85g) cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  • 16 oz (452g) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (155g) sugar
  • 3 tbsp (45ml) milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cups (300ml) heavy whipping cream, cold
  • 1/2 cup (58g) powdered sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups (176g) Oreo crumbs


  • 1 1/4 cups (300ml) heavy whipping cream, cold
  • 1/2 cup (58g) powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chocolate sauce
  • 1620 Oreos, chopped


1. Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C). Grease a 9×13 inch (23×33 cm) baking pan.
2. To make the brownie, combine the butter, sugar and vanilla extract in a medium sized bowl.
3. Add eggs and mix until well combined.
4. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in another medium sized bowl.
5. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and mix until well combined.
6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly.
7. Bake for 24-27 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs. Set aside to cool.
8. To make the cheesecake filling, add the cream cheese and sugar to a large mixer bowl and mix until well combined and smooth.
9. Add the milk and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Set aside.
10. In another bowl, add the heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar to make the whipped cream. Whisk on high speed until stiff peaks form.
11. Fold about 1/3 of the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until combined.
12. Add the remaining whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture and fold until combined.
13. Add the Oreo crumbs and gently fold until well combined.
14. To make the additional whipped cream for layering, add the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar and vanilla extract to a large mixer bowl. Whisk on high speed until stiff peaks form.
15. To layer everything together, but the brownie into small pieces. Add about half of the brownie pieces to the bottom of the trifle dish.
16. Add about half of the cheesecake filling in an even layer on top of the brownies.
17. Add about 3/4 of the chopped Oreos in an even layer on top of the cheesecake filling, then drizzle with chocolate sauce.
18. Add a little more than half of the whipped cream, reserving enough to pipe some on the top of the finished trifle.
19. Add another layer of brownies and cheesecake filling.
20. Finish off the trifle with some swirls of the remaining whipped cream, the remaining chopped Oreos and another drizzle of chocolate sauce.
21. Refrigerate trifle until ready to serve. I like to let it all set together for a few hours before serving. Trifle is best when covered for 3-4 days.

    Do you think i could make this in a spring form pan? I don’t particularly care for truffle style desserts.

  2. Brandy

    I made this for a teacher appreciation luncheon. Every bit of it was eaten! To save time, I cut up brownies from the grocery store bakery. It was nice being able to make this the night before.

  3. Lara

    Very good. Decadent, rich and fulfills the chocolate craving. Recommend small servings due to the dense nature of the dessert. Will make again, 

  4. Karen

    This looks yummy!!! If I was short on time and wanted to use Cool Whip instead of making my own whipped cream how much would I need??? Thanks!!!

  5. Nicole C

    if I DIDN’T make the whipped cream & wanted to use Cool-Whip instead; how much would I need for the whipped cream amount that gets added into the cheesecake AND for the add’t whipped cream used for layering?

    1. Lindsay

      You’d want to use an 8 oz container of Cool Whip for each – so one for the cheesecake filling and one for layering.

  6. Misha barry

    Made this dessert yesterday for a bbq and everyone loved it! I could of foundered on it hahaha! Thank you for sharing!

  7. Debrashoppeno5

    I agree I have to have a routine to make sure I am not forgetting something. I also have a sweet tooth. I could see myself digging into this scrumptious dessert and trying to eat it all in one sitting 🙂

  8. Pam P

    Hi, found this recipe through Facebook and one of your videos. I”m making it for my daughters birthday. how many cookies would you say you crushed to have the right amount of crumbs? I hate guessing! Also any suggestions on how to make it stretch to feed 15 teenage girls?

    1. Lindsay

      I’d say roughly 15-20 Oreos. It’s a fairly heavy dessert. It might do ok for 15 girls if the servings aren’t too big.

  9. Heather

    Are the Oreo crumbs just crushed up Oreos filling and all? I wasn’t able to find just Oreo crumbs at the store. 

  10. April

    What about using a boxed brownie mix for those of us who need something easier?  🙂 I have a newborn and 2 yr old and the easier the better! 

  11. Quinn

    Hi there. I would love to make these trifles but was wondering whether I can incorporate Bailey’s Irish Cream in them for a grown up festive treat? If so, how would you suggest I do so? I have just discovered your blog and am absolutely loving it. Thank-you for all your hard work and dedication – your recipes and blog posts are truly inspiring.

    Lots of love from the land Down Under 🙂

    1. Lindsay

      Ohh I love that idea! You can add up to 6 tablespoons of Baileys to the brownie, kind of like I did in this one. And then feel free to replace the milk in the cheesecake with Baileys. You could even add a touch more if you want. 🙂

    1. Lindsay

      Heavy whipping cream is what’s used to make whipped cream. You can sometimes find just Heavy Cream, but the whipping part is ideal.

    In the directions you say, Trifle is best when covered for 3-4 days
    Do you mean you can make it 3 or 4 days before serving?  
    I am planning on making this for one of our Thanksgiving desserts. 
    If I can make it that far in advance?  That would be great.

    1. Lindsay

      I mean that I’d recommend eating by 3-4 days after it’s made for it to be at it’s best. So if you eat it the day after you make it and have leftovers, it should still be nice for a couple days. If you make it and it sits for 3-4 days, it’ll be towards the end of it’s “better days” but still fine. That said, it’s an easy dessert to make a day or so ahead.

      1. Lori T

        Thank you for getting back to me!  I am going to make it today.  
        Tomorrow it will be gone.   
        Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  13. Michelle

    I go from left to right in the grocery store and my little OCD heart thrives on routine. This is my life. I am trying your trifle this weekend. We were invited to dinner and I’m making dessert. This looks like a winner. We LOVE trifle. So quick, easy and tasty!

    1. Lindsay

      No it’s actually 1 1/2 cups. 🙂 It’s basically a doubled brownie recipe so that there’s enough for the large trifle.

  14. Emily

    This recipe is absolutely delicious, I made it for a family get together.

    Instead of using a large dish, I assembled individual portions in clear decorative cups to avoid any potential messiness when serving. I also omitted the sugar from the whipped cream layer to cut through the sweetness just a bit, just personal preference 🙂

    Everyone adored this trifle and it was beautiful to serve as well. Thanks so much for all the hard work that goes into this blog!!

  15. Kara

    This looks fantastic!!! I plan on making it this weekend for a birthday celebration. I can’t wait to try it!! 🙂 I was wondering if you think it would be okay to make stabilized whipped cream….I’d like the piped swirls to hold their shape for a while. Or, would you recommend sticking with “standard” whipped cream? Thanks for your help!

    1. Lindsay

      The powdered sugar in the whipped cream will stabilize it. If you have a different method you prefer, you can certainly use that instead. I’ve used this whipped cream for piping before though without an issue.

      1. Kara

        WOW!! This trifle is AMAZING!! It is soooo good! My family and friends loved it. Thank you for a fabulous recipe! Also, thank you for your response regarding the whipped cream. I made it according to your recipe…as you said, the powdered sugar stabilized it. It was perfect! Tasted delicious and the swirls held their shape beautifully. Thanks again!

      2. Brenda

        i would like to use cool whip topping for a short cut. How much would I use in the cream cheese mixture & for layering? Thanks!

      3. Lindsay

        You’d want to use an 8 oz container of Cool Whip for each – so one for the cheesecake filling and one for layering.

  16. Megan

    I’m planning of making this for my daughters birthday party. The only catch, there will be 30ish people. How many does this recipe serve? Thanks!

  17. Brittany

    Wow!! This looks amazing!!!! I can’t wait to make this!! 

    Haha that’s too funny, I’m the same way with routines and especially in the grocery store. I also start the same side and go down the aisles the same way every time. I even have my grocery list items saved in the order of how I walk down the aisle. Glad I’m not the only one 🙂

  18. Katherine

    I totally get the routine thing. I’m like that as well.
    This trifle is absolutely beautiful. Sad I already made dessert today! (Well, not sad because it’s a great dessert, but I want this too, haha!)
