Chocolate Toffee Trifle

I love chocolate and I love this dessert. I have been making this recipe for several years with different variations. I think this is my favorite. Feel free to change it up to your liking - use butterfinger pieces or pecans or any crunchy candy. You can use Cheesecake pudding as a layer or chocolate pudding. Also, I have used Kahlua on top of the brownies...... just be creative. Whatever you use will look awesome layered in trifle dish or a large glass bowl. Enjoy making your favorite combination.



**Please see notes below recipe as I made it again and changed a few things

Chocolate Toffee Trifle

1 lg.brownie mix for a 9 x 13 pan
chopped Heath Bar pieces
caramel ice cream topping

1 pkg instant chocolate pudding-3.9 oz
1/2 cup water
1/2 pint whipping cream
3 Tbsp sugar

1 12 oz container of Cool Whip

Prepare brownie mix according to directions in a 9 x 13 pan. Cool. Use hand mixer and mix the whipping cream with sugar until cream forms a peak. Mix pudding with water and fold in cream. Break the brownie into bite size pieces and place 1/2 of the pieces in the bottom of your trifle dish,drizzle with caramel ice cream topping and generously sprinkle with Heath pieces. Top with 1/2 chocolate pudding mixture then 1/2 Cool Whip and Repeat. Top final Cool Whip layer with Heath bar crumbles. Enjoy - I promise your guests will!

* I used the larger box of Instant pudding/3/4 cup water and mixed it with a full pint of whipped whipping cream. I didn't feel like this layer was chocolatey enough either time so I added Hershey's chocolate syrup til I felt it was perfect. (It was amazing!) I also used the larger container of Cool Whip. I did brownie, caramel syrup, heath pieces, chocolate mousse layer, Cool whip then repeat - topped the final Cool Whip layer with a sprinkling of Heath pieces. I liked the thicker layers - so YUM!
