Recipes: Chocolate Trifle

I know I'm not supposed to be posting recipes but sharing is caring. :D I made this dessert a few weeks ago and since everyone loved it, I thought I'd post it up here. It's really easy to make and tastes ah-maaazing! It has a 5/5 star rating, but personally, I'd give it a 10/5. It is a little heavy so this isn't something for a fat-free weekend. ;) The link to the trifle recipe on www.allrecipes.com is provided above in the title. Users on the site provided good tips on making it less fattening, or how to perfect the recipe even more. Nutritional information is also provided. In my opinion, I don't think it needs any tweaking in terms of taste, but there are helpful hints there nonetheless. In case you're too lazy to go to the site, here's the recipe:

INGREDIENTS
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

DIRECTIONS
{1} Prepare brownie mix according to package directions and cool completely. Cut into 1 inch squares.
{2} 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.
{3} 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.

Besides putting the trifle together in a traditional trifle bowl, you can use glasses or something else. Using fresh fruit like strawberries and raspberries adds some color and a fresh/fruity taste and you might not die of chocolate overload. ;)

It IS soooo delicious!! And Simply me: I think this is for around 20 people but if you go to that link, and type in how many servings you want, it adjusts the quantity of ingredients for you :)

Okay well I checked the site and it's for 12 but at the party it easily served a lot of girls. But you can still tpe in 20 in the box and readjust the ingredients.
