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!

This was awesome. I put cherry pie filling between the brownie and pudding layer as someone else suggested. I would use 2 cans next time for more cherries as this makes a huge trifle. I took it to work and fed 20 people and had some left over. Everyone loved it.

The first time I tasted this recipe I fell in love with it. Dreamgoddess brought it to work for a dinner we had at Thanksgiving. I just made it for the first time today. I cut the recipe in half, and it still makes a large dish. I did as Dreamgoddess suggested and added a can of Cherry Pie filling which gives it a "Black Forrest" taste. This dish goes together easy and makes a beautiful presentation with no effort. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

Oh yum!! I made this for a womens't group meeting, which didn't take place. So my co-workers are digging in and loving it. Really easy to make, and nice and light and fluffy. I used lite Cool Whip, sugar-free pudding and the fat free condensed milk. Tastes just lovely. Thanks for a great treat!

Awesome! I served it to my in-laws and it got RAVE reviews. My father-in-law is a chocaholic, so I was looking for something to satisfy that...He definitely had two large helpings! I used the Heath bar topping next to the chocolate chips and used chocolate chips instead of shavings. And I halved it, which was gracious plenty and filled my trifle dish.

OHHHH YEAAAAAAA! What a sin! I put a little kaluha on my brownies (just let it soak in) didn't use as much whipped cream, but alot of heath bars for the "in-betweens" Women will be more vicious with this dessert than a 75% off sale in a dept store!

This is wonderful! My friend is getting married and had a Tool Shower and I brought this as my dessert - not a bite was left and everybody wanted the dessert! The only thing I did different was I used white chocolate pudding and skipped the layer of plain cool whip. I also used Heath bar crumbs in the layers and on top. I will definately be making this again! Thanks for sharing!!!!
