Snickers Trifle Dessert

I've made this dessert twice in the past week and have YET to be able to try it! It's so good that by the time I get to it, it's already GONE! The first trifle I sent to a teachers' luncheon and it got rave reviews. My boys were so sad that it wasn't for them that I told them we could make another one for the church picnic. The good news is that the boys got to have some and assured me that it was DE-LI-CIOUS! The bad news is that by the time I got the kids fed and ate dessert was gone! I was told by several people, though, that I'm to bring that to every church function from now on. There was only one problem - I needed a bigger bowl!  And, since this one was so easy to put together, I'll be happy to oblige!

For this gooey, decadent, caramel-y goodness, you'll need:
1 box of brownies (and ingredients to make it)
1 (3.9 oz) box instant chocolate pudding mix
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup water
2 (8 oz) containers light Cool Whip
caramel topping
chocolate or hot fudge topping
10 mini Snickers bars (or as many as you like)

1.  Prepare the brownies according to package directions.  Let cool completely and cut into 1 - 1 1/2 inch squares.

2.  While the brownies bake and cool, prepare pudding layer by mixing the instant chocolate pudding mix with sweetened condensed milk and water.  Blend on low speed until mixed and then continue on  medium speed until fluffy.  Gently fold in 8 oz of Cool Whip and refrigerate until ready to use.

3.  To prepare the trifle, layer half of the brownie squares on the bottom of the bowl.  Drizzle with caramel sauce.

4.  Spoon half of the chocolate pudding mix onto the brownies and top with half of the other container of  Cool Whip.  Chop 5 mini Snickers bars and sprinkle over the Cool Whip.

5.  Repeat layers with the other half of the brownies, chocolate pudding mix, and Cool Whip.  Drizzle the top with caramel sauce and chocolate sauce.  Chop remaining Snickers and sprinkle on top.  I also used one mini Snickers in the center as a garnish.

6.  Refrigerate 8 hours or overnight!

This makes an easy, decadent dessert for picnics and family gatherings.  It looks impressive, but really requires very little work and you could easily substitute almost any candy bar.

  5. What if you prepare pudding and then add condensed milk and cool whip?

    1. I've never tried it that way, but I think at that point I'd just stir in the cool whip and leave out the condensed milk. You already have plenty of milk in the prepared pudding. It won't be quite as sweet, but I have made it completely without the condensed milk and that is yummy, too :)

  6. I made it for my husband's birthday. It is fabulous and was a huge hit! Everyone loved it.
