There are 25 trophies in the game and you can tell if a level has a trophy by looking for a symbol in the corner of the level (next to the three pig icons).

You do need to complete the level to claim a trophy but you do not need to get all three pigs. (You can get the three pigs award separate from the trophy.)

The levels with trophies hidden on them is:
Chapter 1: 6, 12, 15, 20, 22
Chapter 2: 1, 2, 9, 10, 11, 17, 20, 22, 25
Chapter 3: 10, 15, 21, 23
Chapter 4: 5, 13, 14, 15, 16, 18, 22

Specific solutions for each of the levels (since that was requested):

1-6: Rightmost cactus of the left group of three. Place a keg near the keg chain so that the cactus is in the blast radius.
1-12: Cactus below the safe. Put a keg where both the pig and cactus are in the blast radius.
1-15: Bottom cactus on the left side. Place two kegs where the first can be hit by the cannon and the second will be ignited by the first and break the cactus.
1-20: Cactus to the right of the tower. Put a keg there and draw powder.
1-22: Cactus to the left of the X. Put the keg a little left of the X so that the cactus is in the blast radius. The boulder will still land on the keg and ignite it.

2-1: Upper cactus by the dynamite. Put a keg there and draw powder.
2-2: Cactus near the safe. Put the keg where both the safe and cactus are in the blast radius.
2-9: Cactus near the box of dynamite on the right side of the screen. Draw powder to the box to ignite.
2-10: Cactus at the very top of the screen. Put the keg where both the cactus and pig are in the blast radius.
2-11: Cactus to the right of the pig in the center of the screen. Put the keg where both the cactus and pig are in the blast radius.
2-17: Cactus below the safe. Put the keg where both the safe and cactus are in the blast radius.
2-20: Right cactus in the middle of the screen (on the left shore). You need to detonate the TNT at just the right time so that when the chain of kegs in the water explodes, the keg near the end on the left is closest to that cactus.
2-22: Left cactus of the pair below the safe. As soon as the boat enters the screen, fire the gun on it to break the cactus.
2-25: Cactus at the very bottom of the screen (at the bottom of the cliff, often behind clouds). Put a keg where both the safe and the nearby boulder are in the blast radius and the boulder will fall on the cactus.

3-10: The boulder near the keg in the bottom middle of the screen. Put a keg on the large X and then another keg below it to create a chain of kegs. When the mine cart goes by the keg at the top boulder, it will bounce from keg to keg until it reaches the bottom of the screen.
3-15: Crystal above the dynamite. Put a keg next to it and draw powder.
3-21: Crystal near the safe. Put the keg where both the crystal and the safe are in its blast radius.
3-23: Crystal in the upper right. Place a keg near there and have the mine car ignite it.

4-5: The cactus below the hay cart. Put a keg behind the hay cart where it will also destroy the wall. Then draw powder past the wall to the keg hidden near the back wall of the vault (on the other side of the safe).
4-13: Cactus at the top right of the screen. Draw powder from the keg by the pig across to the keg hidden near the wall. Then light the kegs near the cart in the center of the level to move it out of the way and light the cannon on the bottom to shoot the keg by the pig.
4-14: Cactus at the bottom middle of the screen. Put a keg near the cactus and draw powder to it on the way to the pig.
4-15: You have to light the mine car that moves along the vertical track. Put a keg near the tracks and draw powder to it. You will probably have to 'circle' with the lit powder so that the keg goes off when the cart is near. When the cart goes off-screen, it will ignite a series of kegs that end in the section behind the crystals on the top-left of the screen. That's where the trophy is. (You can use the cart to ignite a new trail of powder to reach the kegs near the safe.)
4-16: Right cactus outside of the building. If put a keg in near it and light the cannons from top to bottom, the last cannon can shoot the keg and break the cactus.
4-18: Right cactus behind the wall above the right cannon. Turn that cannon so that it points up and light the cannon at the bottom of the screen which will ignite that cannon. Draw a separate trail of powder through the open wall to the kegs which will break the cactus.
4-22: The cactus in the very middle of the level. Turn the top two cannons to point right, the bottom left pointing down, and the bottom right pointing left. Draw powder to the upper cannon and then a long trail to the lower cannon. Also draw powder from the kegs on the far right down to the cannon. The goal is to have the lower-right cannon break the wall in front of the cannon near the dynamite before it fires so that it can break the box blocking the keg. Once that box is broken, you can draw powder from the large kegs below the bottom-left cannon (as well as drawing that powder to the pigs and the safe).
