Brownies- Prepare a batch of brownies using your favorite box mix (for a 8″x8″ pan), or a scratch recipe such asÂ Darla’s Best Brownies. Allow the brownies to fully cool, then cut into small (about 3/4 inch) squares.
Whipped Cream- Using 1 cup of cold heavy cream (often labeled heavy whipping cream), whip until it begins to thicken. While mixing, add 1-2 tablespoons of powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Continue to beat until desired consistency is reached. Be carefully not to over-beat.
Strawberries- Dice 1 pint of fresh strawberries.
Assembly- Layer brownie bites, strawberries and whipped cream in individual dishes. I used small (5 oz) juice glasses. Individual trifle dishes would work great as well. The ingredient quantities above will produce 6 small desserts (with brownie left over). Feel free to adjust the quantities as needed. If desired, Cool Whip may be substituted for the whipped cream.
