Brownie Delight

Brownie mix and instant pudding hurry along the preparation of this scrumptious layered dessert. My family asks for this treat for birthdays instead of cake. —Opal Erickson, Branson, Missouri

    I don't often post a review, but my husband (who is very picky and doesn't often rave over something) and I think this is one of our top new favorite desserts! Delicious! Easy to make, and just as good the following days. I left off the nuts. And used low fat ingredients. Still delicious!

    I made this but used vanilla pudding instead and added 3/4 cups of peanut butter to pudding. I also chopped up 5 resses cups and folded it into the top layer of whipped topping. It was a huge hit.

    Great recipe. Will make more often. Made it exactly to instructions (did not top with nuts) and it came out great looking and great tasting.

    Great combination of chocolate and whipped cream. Everyone loved it and I make it often for many events.

    wow is all i can say. this is super easy as its a "semi-homemade" deal yet very very good. my brownies were a bit over done but still good just got a bit hard in the fridge were i assume you have to keep this due to the cheese and pudding aspects. i made these for xmas to bring to my bf parents and wow they were impressed his mother actualy told me that i wasnt allowed to come over for the holidays without bringing these again lol, and she still doesnt belive me its super easy to make. lol a bit hard to transport out of the pan to a storage container but so worth it. i omitted the nuts and shaved chocolate for the top looks fab and a bit fancy. :)
