ALIVE by Chocolate

I know the traditional name of this dessert is DEATH by Chocolate.  I would like to rename it, ALIVE by Chocolate!

This dessert gives your mouth a jolt and rush of sugar that awakens you to the pleasures of chocolate. The smooth pudding and creamy whipped topping not only look good in the bowl, they are a wonderful complement to the chunky rich brownie pieces.

Last night I took this dessert to a church Christmas potluck and brought home a nearly empty bowl.  I guess that says something, right?  It really is quite easy to make and almost too beautiful to eat.  Well………….not that beautiful!

 

Alive by Chocolate

1 (19.8 ounce) package brownie mix

2 (3.9 ounce) packages instant chocolate pudding mix

1 (16 ounce) package frozen whipped topping, thawed

3 (1.4 ounce) bars chocolate covered English toffee, optional

 

Prepare brownies according to package directions. Let cool. Cut into small cubes.

Mix pudding according to package directions.

In a trifle bowl (or other deep glass bowl), layer in the following order: 1/3 of the pudding, 1/3 of the brownies, 1/3 of the whipped topping.

Repeat layers in the same order.

Refrigerate.
