This was really good! So rich! In some strange attempt to lower my guests guilt-level, I used light cool whip, and lowfat milk for the pudding, but the taste was still wonderful.

This was incredible. I made it twice in one week - once for home and used heavy cream and once for work using lite cook whip. This will become a favorite in our household. So easy yet sooo good. Was worth the time to whip the cream but not bad at all with cool whip. Thanks!

Believe me this does not taste like mix brownies and instant pudding! It tastes like it took much more effort to prepare than it did. Instead of a bowl, I prepared these as individual parfaits for our New Years eve dinner - what a fun & tasty treat, and looks impressive! I left out the coffee because we had a coffee-hater in the bunch. I did try to make the pudding with soy milk but it refused to set up. After 2 tries I resorted to dairy milk. Who knew? The other thing I did differently was just for the littler kids who didn't like toffee. I substituted mini m&m's. They were colorful & cute and the kids went wild for them. Great recipe.

This was my first trifle, recently having purchased a beautiful trifle bowl. What a debut!! It was a huge hit, especially w/yummy toffee chips. The only thing I changed was that I used VANILLA pudding instead of chocolate. It really let the chocolate in the brownies shine! Give it a try! Thanks for a great recipe.

This was good and simple. The recipe did not specify a small or large pkg. of pudding mix. I figured based on the milk it called for that it was the samll pkg. I think next time I will make the large pkg. with the amount of milk it calls for. Wanted a little more chocolate and moisture. Loved the toffee chips. It really brings the whole recipe together. Thanks!

This was really good! Very rich...i think it may be because I used Ghiradelli double chocolate brownies and they were chewy, rich and had extra chocolate chips in them. Next time I'll use regular brownies that are more cake-like to reduce the richness. But this recipe is a winner and looks beautiful as well! Oh, and don't forget the instant coffee in it, it makes the brownies sooo good!

Oh my my my this was deeeliisshhh. I made this as stated and just crumbled up skor candy bars for the tofee bits. I think next time I may add more pudding and whip cream, just to indulge a bit more:)

delicious! I did not include the coffee and used fat free cool whip and fat free pudding- it was still rich and tasty! Great chocolate creamy flavor. Yum!

I love this! I've never used dry coffee. I've used almond extract. And for the toffee, I crush up some heath bars. Can you get heath bars where your at?
