  • 2 (8 ounce) containersfrozen whipped cream, , thawed
  • 2 (12 ounce) containersfrozen whipped cream, , thawed

  6. Repeat layers.
  7. Shave chocolate onto top layer for garnish.
  8. Refrigerate 8 hours before serving.

I know some people who would pay $$$ for this recipe! My husband took some to work today and let some one taste it - the next thing he knew his office was full of drooling co-workers. I made half the recipe using using broken up Oreo cookies instead of brownies. I made the pudding with milk and used Cool Whip instead of whipped cream. I only chilled it for 2 hours. My husband and son rated it as a 10 !!!!

This was heavenly!!!! My husband told me I could make it anytime. I did add fresh strawberries to the layers and made about 10 hand dipped chocolate strawberries to garnish; simple beautiful! I only used 1-8 oz. & 1-12 oz. cool-whip, think the 2's would be way too much. Surprised me that is wasn't too sweet with all the condensed milk. THis is definitely a keeper!

I made this dessert for our Thankgiving dinner at work. All I can say is "FANTASTIC!" This was sooo good. I could easily have cut this recipe in half and it would have been plenty. I put cherry pie filling between the brownie layer and the pudding layer. Very yummy dessert and worth every minute it took to make it!
