Instructions
  1. Make Your Brownies. Buy or bake as many brownies as needed (2 per individual trifle dish). Precut them into the shape you need to fit them into your trifle bowl. Set aside.
  2. Make Your Mousse. Combine white chocolate chips and 1 Cup of heavy whipping cream in a sauce pan and heat on low until melted. Set aside and let it completely cool. Meanwhile, beat your heavy cream on high until it’s nice and fluffy with stiff peaks. Once your white chocolate mixture is cool, gently fold it into your whipped cream to create your mousse. Place the mousse in the refrigerator to cool for a few hours.
  3. Make Your Bunny Heads. Scoop out a small mound of mousse and carefully shape it into a dome, placing it on a piece of parchment paper. Form it into the shape of a head and repeat this process until you have as many heads as you need (4 for this recipe). Next, take a large marshmallow and cut it once on the diagonal and then cut it in half again. Take the inside sticky end and dip it in pink sprinkles for the inside of the ear. Once you’ve done that, place one on each side of your mousse bunny head. Then to finish your bunny’s face, add pearl candies for the eyes and nose and take a few pieces of coconut and stick those into the mousse around your bunny’s nose for her whiskers. Place your mousse bunnies into the freezer for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  4. Take the remaining mousse and mix in several drops of pink food coloring (or your favorite Easter color). This is the mousse that will be the layer between your brownies and will add a pretty pop of color to the dessert. Once you’ve mixed the food coloring in, place it back into the refrigerator until you’re ready to assemble your trifles.
  5. Make Your Grass. Add a few drops of green food coloring to your coconut and mix well. Set aside.
  6. Assemble Your Easter Bunny Brownie Trifles. Begin by placing a piece of brownie at the bottom of your trifle bowl and topping it with a good portion of mousse, ensuring it’s enough to touch all the edges of the trifle dish. Next, top that first layer of mousse with a second piece of brownie, then add your coconut grass around the top edge. Finally, you’ll remove your bunny heads from the freezer and gently place them on top of your trifle.
  7. Serve and enjoy! Happy Easter!
