Moose Tracks Trifle Dessert Recipe

This Moose Tracks Trifle dessert recipe has all of the classic flavors of Vanilla, Chocolate Fudge, and Peanut Butter that you would expect to find in the famous Moose Tracks ice cream…but it is taken one step further and I made a trifle out of that amazing flavor combo, I just couldn’t help myself! You’ll understand why when you try it, believe me.

What is moose tracks?

I’m sure that some company somewhere (back in the day) coined the phrase, but “moose tracks” is just a fancy way of putting together the flavors of chocolate, peanut butter, and vanilla…that’s really all that it is.

I am a huge fan of the Moose Tracks flavored Ice Cream, so I decided that I wanted to see if I could figure out a way to make a yummy trifle version of that delicious flavor combo.

Not meaning to toot my own horn, but once in a great, great while I am at the top of my game in the kitchen, and this recipe is easily one of the best ones on my site thus far! I love it!

I worked on this recipe for months, in my brain, thinking about ideas and how it could work, before I even started to try in the kitchen… and I think that it turned out SO FREAKING TASTY!

That’s just my opinion though. You’ll have to try it and let me know what you think.

Prepare your thighs for this one!…lol.

How to make this homemade moose tracks dessert:

I’ll start by showing you all of the ingredients all laid out…

Moose Tracks Trifle Ingredients.

We’ve got layers of Fudge Brownies (instead of cake or lady fingers that most trifles have). They were cut into squares using my Norpro Scraper.

Then layered into my trifle bowl. I love this trifle bowl so much I bought two, you can get one here too.

Then came the Peanut Butter Mousse,

Moose Tracks Trifle Dessert Recipe (Peanut Butter Brownie Trifle)

Yield: 24
Prep Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour

This Moose Tracks Trifle dessert recipe has the classic flavors Vanilla, Chocolate Fudge, & Peanut Butter that is usually in ice cream…but I just had to make a trifle out of that delicious flavor combo.


  • 1 Batch Fudge Brownies (prepared and cut into little squares)
  • 3X Vanilla Mousse Recipe
  • 1 Batch Peanut Butter Mousse
  • Hot Fudge Topping
  • 1 Pkg Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate Chips


    1. In a standard trifle bowl, evenly spread out half of the brownie squares. *Pack them tight around the edges for a better looking trifle.*
    2. Next, spread half of the Peanut Butter Mousse over the brownies.
    3. Follow with half of the Vanilla Mousse.
    4. Repeat those layers.
    5. Sprinkle ⅔rds of the Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate chips.
    6. Warm the hot fudge topping for about 30 seconds and let it cool a bit, so it's not too warm but still spreadable.
    7. Sprinkle the remaining Peanut Butter and Milk Chocolate chips.
    8. It's ready to serve or gently/loosely cover and refrigerate until needed.


Before you start prepare each of the first three ingredients, links to recipes for the vanilla and peanut butter mousse's are found in the post, or look them up in the search bar. They also have printable recipe cards available.

I let my brownies cool and then left them sitting in the cooled oven over night so that they would be a little more dry. This makes the brownies get soggy less quickly, so if you want your trifle to stay good for a couple/few days in the fridge, maybe do that too.I would not make this more than one night before needed...just so it tastes best.

If I were to make these again I would probably double the amount of brownies used, so use your best judgement on how many brownies to make.
