Chocolate Trifle

Now people...this dessert will change your life. I got it from Abby's friend, Devin. It has to be the most amazing thing I've ever put in my mouth. We served it at Justin's graduation party and it was GONE in all of 2 seconds. I left to feed the baby for approximately 15 minutes and came out to NOTHING!! That's how good it is. In fact, it was so good that we made it again for Camryn's blessing lunch 2 days later. It was gone again in 2 seconds. You are going to die...just be ready for it.

1 extra large container Cool Whip
3-4 T Cocoa powder
1 jar caramel topping
1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 boxes favorite brownie mix
3 Heath bars crushed

Make up the brownie mix according to box directions, but bake in a sheetcake pan. Bake until just set in the middle. Let cool completely.

Mix Cool Whip and cocoa powder until well combined.

In a trifle bowl, layer brownies, sweetened condensed milk, caramel, chocolate Cool Whip, and crushed Heath bars 3 times. Enjoy!!

*I actually crushed up an extra large Symphony bar with Almonds and Toffee and it was just amazing. Also, the original recipe calls for homemade whipped cream where you buy whipping cream and whip it to the consistency you like while adding sugar and cocoa to taste. I was going to do that, but the Cool Whip with cocoa powder seemed easier. Also...when I made it again, I just bought the Brownie Bites from Costco instead of making homemade. They were wonderful. So there are some shortcuts that you can take if you're short on time. It's also best when you make it a few hours before you serve it and put it in the fridge so that the sweetened condensed milk and caramel kind of soaks into the brownies. Pure deliciousness!!!

  1. I've been waiting for an event to make this and I finally have one on Sunday! I absolutely can't wait. ONe question, do you make both brownie mixes together in one bowl? Or do you bake each one separate in 2 different cookie sheets.
