This really is a great dessert! The brownie is actually pretty soft on the bottom. I prepared this straight out of the Cooking Light 5-star recipes. Excellent after dinner dessert!

Very good! I used fat-free, sugar-free instant chocolate pudding mix as that is what I had on hand, and it worked well. And, as I prefer chocolate desserts on the not-so-sweet side, I opted for plain, slightly sweetened whipped cream with vanilla on top, instead of adding more coffee and Kahlua. Overall, this was a delicious and easy dessert that went over well with my company.

I was going to post this receipe myself too...I too found it in the cooking light magazine. It's to die for. Most people who taste it can't believe it's from a cooking light recipe. Bravo!
