Thanksgiving is right around the corner and my husband and I both have potluck lunches at our offices. He signed me up for something sweet and I knew right away I would make my brownie trifle.
The recipe is so easy and looks great in the pretty glass trifle bowl. Most ingredients I usually have on hand this time of year so if needed I can whip up something sweet pretty quickly.
I originally found this recipe here and modified it through trial and error. I've gotten the most feedback with my own twist added to it but the recipe is so simple you can really make it your own!
1 package of brownie mix
1 large package of instant chocolate pudding
1 large container of frozen whipped topping
1 jar of caramel sauce
1 bag of Heath Bar toffee bits
-Bake the brownies as directed on the box. Once the brownies are in the oven, I mix the pudding together and let it set in the fridge.
-After the brownies are cooked and cooled scoop out half to layer the bottom of your trifle bowl. Pour a thin layer of caramel sauce and top it with the Heath Bar bits. Scoop out a thick layer of pudding and top with another thick layer of whipped topping. Repeat layers and garnish with extra toffee bits.
-Allow the trifle to settle itself and keep cold in the fridge for at least one hour before serving.
There really are so many variations of this trifle with cake or wafer cookies instead of brownies, different flavor puddings, fruit, or fun crushed up candies. Play around and have fun!
