For all you Chocolate Lovers out there, this dessert is a keeper! My husband found the recipe and made it for me for Mother’s Day, and we’ve made it several times since because it’s sooooo delicious!
1 (19.8 oz) package brownie mix
1 (3.9 oz) package instant chocolate pudding
½ cup water
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
2 (8 oz) container whipped topping
1 Special dark chocolate candy bar
Prepare brownie mix according to package directions and cool completely. Cut into 1 inch squares. Try a few (I always do); it’s my reward for cooking.
In a large bowl, combine pudding mix, water and sweetened condensed milk. Mix until smooth, then fold in 1 container whipped topping. (Warning!!! Don’t cut your finger on the lid of the sweetened condensed milk can; that thing is treacherous, but my family just can’t resist licking every drop out of the can)
In a trifle bowl or glass serving dish, place half of the brownies, half of the pudding mixture and half of the other container of whipped topping. Repeat layers.
Shave chocolate on for garnish (use a potato peeler; it works great!)
Refrigerate 8 hours before serving.
