Brownie Mocha Trifle Recipe

Brownie Mocha Trifle Recipe

By using instant pudding and a convenient box of brownie mix, there's nothing to the preparation. The result is moist and chewy. And the layers look so pretty spooned into a glass trifle bowl. —Louise Fauth, Foremost, Alberta

"A delicious dessert!!!! I used a mocha brownie box mix from the store and added a bit more coffee to the milk/pudding. I had Hershey's chocolate bars on hand and added salted chopped nuts as an additional mini-layer. Perfect sweet/salty combination! The recipe did not quite fill a 9x13 glass dish and I wished I had a few more layers to add (but it still looked pretty!). Thanks for the recipe!"

"This is to die for. My friend made it for my baby shower, because I had a brownie craving, and it hit the spot. I am making it for a Packer party tomorrow. Such the perfect blend of flavors."

"OMG !!! I made this recipe yesterday to take to a relative's house and from a full table of desserts, this one was the one that everyone loved and went crazy for it. Everyone wants the recipe.I must say that i made a few changes to it like i din't have coffee so i added more milk and a bit of egg nog and that egg nog made such a difference; also i added in between the layers some chopped milk chocolate bar instead of Heath candy bar. This is the best trifle that i ever made by faand from now one i'm making this for all of my parties. Thank you for this wonderfull recipe !!! :)"

"I made this for a company potluck. It was a real hit - everyone wanted the recipe. I think it's a good recipe for tweaking too - using chocolate pudding instead of vanilla, using different candy, maybe adding chopped nuts, caramel topping, chocolate syrup - the options are endless!

Will definitely make this again!!"
