Reviews for Toffee Brownie Trifle
"This is such a rich, decadent dessert. I LOVE chocolate, so this is my go to dessert when serving chocolate lovers. You can change the candy bars to crushed Butterfinger or mini chocolate chips."
"I made this for Christmas and it was a great hit everyone loved it. Simple to make and I will make it again for all get togethers."
"This has been a family favorite for years. My 24 year old son requests this for his birthday dessert every year. It's always a hit!!!!!"
"This dessert is super sweet - too sweet for my family's tastes. I used white choc and cheesecake pudding mixes. I brought it to a Thanksgiving potluck and brought most of it home. It would be better to serve it after a lighter meal. I like a previous poster's suggestion of sprinkling Kahlua over the cut brownies - it might help cut the sweetness a bit.It was very easy to put together, and it feeds a lot, so it's good for potlucks. Personally, I like it better the next day, but the brownies do absorb some of the moisture and get soft. I used Heath chips from the baking aisle. Sprinkle the chips on top just before serving, as they start to melt on the pudding layer after a while."
"How far ahead can you make this? Is it okay to make the night before it is served?"
"Is the size of the pudding and amount of milk correct?"
