My husband is a huge fan of black forest cake–and chocolate covered cherries too–so any time I come up with a chocolate-cherry dessert it’s sure to be a hit. And what’s not to love about layers of chewy brownie, homemade cherry sauce and fresh whipped cream?
Yes, you could use canned cherry pie filling, but the homemade stuff is oh so easy (with the help of a cherry pitter) and totally worth the extra bit of effort. If you’re looking to save time with this recipe, go for store-bought brownies (that’s what I did!) and put your efforts into the cherry filling. It’s what makes this dessert extra special! If you don’t have individual trifle bowls or similar sized glass dishes, this will work just as well in the larger, standard-size trifle dish.
Who Dished It Up First: This is an original recipe.
