The low-cal, low-fat version of a simple (yet deliciously sinful) chocolate trifle.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions (I substitute half unsweetened applesauce for any vegetable oil).
  2. Allow brownies to cool and cut into 1-inch squares.
  3. In a large bowl, combine pudding mix, water and condensed milk. Mix until smooth. Fold in 8-oz container of Cool Whip.
  4. In a glass serving dish, layer 1/2 brownies, 1/2 pudding mix and 1/2 of the 12-oz container of Cool Whip. Repeat layering.
  5. Garnish with chocolate bar shavings. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
  6. Can also be served in individual dessert or wine glasses.

No one will guess this is low-fat because it is EXTREMELY rich! I used Betty Crocker's low fat brownies, but we thought they were a bit 'heavy' for how light the mousse and whipped topping layers were. Next time, I'll try using a crumbled or cubed low-fat chocolate cake instead. The mousse layer would also be an excellent dessert option by itself or with a little whipped cream. It is so light and airy yet decadent. The only change I made to the recipe was to used my micro zester on some chocolate chips for the garnish as I didn't have a candy bar.
