Dessert at the McGills: Turtle Trifle 

A few weeks back I found this great recipe and made sure to tuck it away for Father’s Day. It so quick and easy I managed to make it start to finish during Monkey’s afternoon nap.

It only requires a few simple ingredients and thankfully I can substitute box brownies from scratch ones so which made everything a lot less messy and a little easier. 

I started by making the brownies and allowing them to cool,  then crumbling about half the pan, and divided that half into the bottom of some all purpose glasses.

The covered with a sweet whipped cream, Caramel and crushed peanuts

Then repeat for you finished product 

This was the perfect Father’s Day dessert to go along with our barbecue Pizza!

  1. Oh yum, caramel and chocolate are one of my favorite combos. I made a cherry pie for Father’s Day because we had a ton of cherries that needed to get used up but anything chocolate is usually my dessert go-to!
