Death by Chocolate Trifle Dessert

Comment on this recipe

I use a hammer to crush candy bars in their wrappers. This is a wonderful, delicious dessert for a buffet or large gathering. It's so easy to make and can be made the day before.

Ingredients

1 box brownie mix, prepared according to package directions
2 boxes (1-1/2 ounces each) instant chocolate pudding, prepared according to package directions
12 ounces non-dairy whipped topping
9 Heaath candy bars, partially crushed

Instructions

Cool and break brownies into 1-inch chunks. Prepare pudidng according to package. Layer in 1/3 brownie, 1/3 pudding, 1/3 whipped topping and 1/3 crushed candy in a glass trifle bowl. Repeat layering two additional times, ending with whipped topping. Sprinkle remainder of crushed candy bars on topping and place a maraschino cherry in the middle for presentation. Chill thoroughly. Enjoy! Yields 16-20 servings.
