Chocolate Trifle

A dessert that can look impressive but couldn't be simpler.  This is often requested for birthdays in place of birthday cake at our house, a crowd pleaser for sure.

Chocolate Trifle

-1 boxed brownie mix 

-1 (3.9 oz.) package instant chocolate pudding mix

-1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk

-1/2 cup water

-1 (8 oz.) container whipped topping

-1 (12 oz.) container whipped topping

Begin by baking your brownies according to package directions and letting cool completely. Once cooled cut into small squares.  Then combine pudding mix, water, and sweetened condensed milk until smooth.  Then fold in the 8 oz. whipped topping until fully combined and no streaks remain.  Now start layering in your serving dish (a trifle dish works best for this) starting with a layer of brownies, about half, next layer is the chocolate pudding mixture, again about half, next layer is half of the 12 oz. whipped topping.  Finally repeat these 3 layers until your dish is full, finishing with whipped topping.
