Recipe: Brownie Trifle

The first time I had these layers of brownie, chocolate pudding, cool whip and Butterfinger crumbs was at a church event in middle school, and I've been making this Southern Living recipe for groups ever since. The presentation is fancy but the ingredients are simple and sure to please anyone, except for that strange minority that doesn't like chocolate. All the textures blend together to make the sum of the trifle greater than its parts, which is pretty fantastic considering the height of the pedestal on which I put brownies and Butterfinger.

Brownie Trifle

1 (19.8oz) package brownie mix

3 (3.9oz.) package chocolate instant pudding

1 (12oz.) container Cool Whip

6 toffee bars, crushed (or butterfinger)

1. Prepare brownies, cool, and crumble.

2. Prepare pudding mix using total of 4 cups milk instead of 5, omitting chilling.

3. Place 1/3 brownies in 3 quart trifle bowl; top with 1/3 pudding, Cool Whip, and crushed candy bars. Repeat layers twice.

4. Cover and chill at least 8 hours.
