This is fantastic! I made this for a family get-together yesterday, and ti was truly sinful- as was I, since I kept snitching bites of the leftovers this afternoon! LOL I halved the recipe, and used homemade brownie mix (Brownie Mix - Amazing Every Single Dang Time). I layered the brownies, the pudding layer, a layer of Heath Toffee bits, the cool whip, and then a drizzle of caramel ice cream topping. I repeated the layers, topped it with some very small bites of brownie and toffee bits, caramel and chocolate curls. Oh, to die for! And as good as it was yesterday, it was even better today. This is a definite keeper, thanks for posting!

This makes a wonderful presentation...I have a huge trifle bowl. Step #3 on the directions says to fold in 8 ounces whipped topping (which is what I did), but I think it's supposed to be for both of the 8 ounces because I still have 8 ounces of whipped topping left at the end! It was too late by the time I realized it, but it was still very good. The pudding was a little too sweet because of the mistake, but my party of 30+ people all enjoyed it very much! Thank you!

Gone in a moment. That was wonderful. I also saw the other comments about cherries, I will try this next time. A score of 10. Thanks for posting.

I made this for a Labor Day block party and everyone enjoyed it. I thought it was too much pudding mix and whipped cream and not enough brownies -- thus the 4 star review. Thanks for posting!

This was very rich! Almost a bit too rich for my taste. I used the fat free condensed milk/whipped cream/pudding and am glad I did, you're right that you can't tell the difference. I made a half recipe and it filled my trifle bowl perfectly. Thanks for posting.

OMG!! This was incredible! I made it for my New Years day dessert today. Absolutely lucious, decandant and most definitely sinful but extremely easy to make. I only made half the recipe and it was devoured. I managed to save one small bowl for a treat for me tomorrow. I used carmel drizzled between the layers and on top. Just heavenly. I have never made a trifle before but I will certainly be experimenting with this dessert since I went out and bough a trifle bowl. Can't let it sit in the cabinets gathering dust, now can I? LOL

Wow this was wonderful... Made it for Thanksgiving and it was a hit. I actually cut corners and bought the chocolate muffins from Costco instead of baking brownies. I also used Tia Maria to give it a little kick.

This was delicious , and I'm not even much of a chocolate lover - but was bringing to a party where I knew others were. Got great compliments, especially from DH who said it was one of the best desserts I'd ever made! Another compliment was that it was sweet but refreshing, not too rich. It lasted 2 days at our house. I halved the recipe and it was perfect for my size trifle dish. I made it with light sweetened condensed milk and chocolate pudding, I shaved a Lindt Dark Chocolate Orange bar w/almond pieces in it all over the two whipped cream layers (I used Cool Whip for the whipped cream). I topped mine with raspberries and sliced almonds, if I had to do again I would add raspberries to the middle layer as well as they went beautifully with all the sweet chocolate - beautiful Christmas Eve dessert! Thanks for posting.

Wow is the word for this one. My guests at my 4'th of July cookout loved this. It tastes a lot like a dessert the local bakery prepares. I prepared it as posted but the next time I may use cherry pie filling but it doesn't need any improvement as it is. Thanks for posting.
