Chocolate Trifle

Once again, my friend Patti came through with an awesome dessert for last week’s cocktail party.  It was more like a dance party since that’s what we did most of the evening besides drinking and devouring this yummy treat.  With “Make it yourself” personal pizzas in the oven, wine in our glasses and Disco on Pandora, this was icing on the cake for a fun-filled evening with the girls.

Here is the recipe she sent me:

Servings: 12
Prep Time: 30 Min
Cook Time: 25 Min
Ready In: 8 Hrs 55 Min


1 (19.8 ounce) package brownie mix
1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix 1/2 cup water
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (8 ounce)container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (12 ounce)container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (1.5 ounce) bar chocolate candy


Prepare brownie mix according to package directions and cool completely. Cut into 1 inch squares.

In a large bowl,combine pudding mix, water and sweetened condensed milk.  Mix until smooth, then fold in 8 ounces whipped topping until no streaks remain.

In a trifle bowl or glass serving dish, place half of the brownies, half of the pudding mixture and half of the 12 ounce container of whipped topping.  Repeat layers. Shave chocolate onto top layer for garnish. Refrigerate 8 hours before serving.

For a smaller size, maybe try in martini, brandy glasses or shot glasses.  Have fun!
