This past weekend I went to AL to visit D and his family. When he came to see my phiarents in February, Mama made a brownie trifle that he loved. He told him mom that I was making it Saturday! Okay, sure, I'll make it! :-)
It is really an easy dessert to put together and chocolate lovers will enjoy it. I'm NOT a chocolate loves and apparently neither is D's mom (I'm not alone! Phew!) but we both enjoyed this one. I made it a little less "guilty" by using sugar free pudding and lite cool whip...though D tried to get me to use Dream Whip! ;-) You could even use the healthy recipe on the brownie box if you want. This is perfect for an easy, eye-catching dessert. Hmmm, try it out for Memorial Day!? Sounds like a plan to me.
1 box family size brownies (I use fudge style) - prepared according to the box
1 box chocolate pudding, prepared (I actually made two boxes just in case but one would work - didn't use it all)
1 small (8oz) cool whip
chopped toffee (I use the Heshey's Bits 'O Brickle, you could just chop up Heath bars) - about 1/2-2/3 cup
Prepare pudding as instructed and chill. Make brownies per box instructions and allow to cool. In a trifle bowl, place about 1/3 of brownies in small chunks. I just remove the brownies from the pan using a fork, which chunks them with no effort! Place 1/2 pudding on top of brownie. Top this with about 1/2 the cool whip. Sprinkle with toffee pieces. Repeat layers with remaining brownie, pudding, and cool whip. Top with desired amount of toffee...I like a lot! Enjoy now or chill and enjoy layer!
