Mocha Mousse Brownie Trifle

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by TheDancingCook

Chocolate and toffee; a definite satisfaction to a chocolate lovers cravings. If serving in a trifle bowl (looks great!), I would double the recipe to fill your average trifle bowl. This recipe is courtesy of Taste of Home's Quick Cooking March/April 2003 edition. The cook time includes the brownie baking time.

I made this for Christmas Eve to take to my BIL's house and it was great. I used Mirj's Super Fudgy Triple Chocolate Espresso Brownies(#41985) and it was great. This is a very rich dessert but so good and easy to put together.
