Chocolate Oreo Trifle

**This is not the picture of the trifle, but we had some friends for dinner the other night and I thought I would try something new. I made this dessert as directed below, but cut the cake in half instead of in cubes and just layered the ingredients on top of the cake. Cake, cookies, mousse, cool whip. repeat. We all liked it, but for some reason we enjoyed it better made as the trifle.**

**This is the Trifle! It was Mothers Day Dessert and it was so YUMMY!**
We made a trifle one time with chocolate pudding and chocolate cake and we did not like it and the cousins who are all chocolate lovers didn't love it either. So, my sister in law is an oreo lover, and I make another chocolate mousse dessert that the family loves, so this is a mix of a few ideas put into one.

**The mousse directions for this recipe is from another chocolate mousse dessert that my mom always made growing up. I will post how to make that recipe below the Trifle recipe.**

Chocolate Oreo Trifle
1 box Devils Food chocolate cake mix

1/2 cup HOT milk
6oz Dark chocolate bar (I buy one of the large Hersheys dark chocolate bars)
4 cups mini marshmellows
1 pint heavy cream

1 16oz cool whip

1 pkg oreo cookies

Make cake mix as directed on back of box. Bake it in a 9x13. When it is cool, cut it into cubes. Mine was probably cut in to 6-7 rows wide and about 10 rows long.

Meanwhile in a blender add chocolate bar broken up into squares, 4 cups marshmellows and HOT milk. Turn blender on until all ingredients are melted and blended in. Place in fridge and let it cool down to at least room temperature.

When the chocolate mixture is cooled down. Beat the heavy cream in a mixer until stiff peaks appear. Fold in the chocolate mixture.

Put oreo cookies in a baggie and crush them with a mallot.

Get out your trifle dish or punch bowl like I used. Layer 1/3 of cake mix on bottom, cookie crumbs, 1/3 of chocolate mousse mix, and 1/3 of the cool whip. Repeat 2 more times. You should end with cool whip on top. Then just sprinkle some oreo crumbs on top for looks.

Refrigerate for a couple hours before serving.

Chocolate Mousse Dessert

**See directions above**

Cookie crust:
1 cup butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar or granulated sugar ( I use half of each)
2 cups flour
Mix together until crumbly. Layer into a 9x13 baking dish. Bake 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Let cool completely. Layer mousse over top of cookie crust. Refrigerate for several hours before serving.


Oreo crust:
1 pkg oreo cookies
1 stick butter
Crush the entire package of cookies. Add 1 stick of melted butter. Stir and then press into the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Layer Mousse on top of oreo crust. Refrigerate for several hours before serving.
