It’s been far toooooo long since I’ve posted a recipe! For those who don’t know, I’ve moved!!! We’ve spent the last couple of weeks digging ourselves out of a seemingly unending stack of boxes.I was able to find space in the kitchen to throw together this delicious dessert for a treat to take to work. Have no fear, it’s SIMPLE, quick, and tasty! The brownies come from a box mix, what could be easier than that? Try this out for your next get together – you could even switch it up with different pudding flavors, add chocolate sauce or caramel sauce, or top with toffee bits. Anyway you look at it, it’s a beautiful dessert!
1 (19.8 oz) package brownie mix
1 (3.9 oz) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1/2 c water
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (8 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (12 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (1.5 oz) bar chocolate candy
Prepare brownie mix according to package directions and cool completely. Cut into 1 inch squares.
In a large bowl, combine pudding mix, water and sweetened condensed milk. Mix until smooth, then fold in 8 ounces whipped topping until no streaks remain. In a trifle bowl or glass serving dish, place half of the brownies, half of the pudding mixture and half of the 12 ounce container of whipped topping. Repeat layers. Shave chocolate onto top layer for garnish. Refrigerate 8 hours before serving.
[My 2 Cents]
I didn’t have the size box of pudding that the recipe called for, I had the 5.9 oz. I also had a little less than half a can of opened sweetened condensed milk. So I used the full box of pudding and the extra sweetened condensed milk and it was really yummy! The reviews on AllRecipes said they used real whipping cream instead of cool whip, I didn’t have the time otherwise I probably would have done the same.
I also made the pudding mixture the night before and refrigerated that portion rather than assembling the trifle and putting it all in the fridge. That way the brownies were still soft and not cold and hard when I put it together the next morning.
