Brownie Trifle

Easy Holiday Dessert

Gather the ingredients - * Brownie mix (plus ingredients on the box) * Milk * Chocolate pudding mix * Heavy cream * Powdered sugar * Vanilla extract

In a large mixing bowl, prepare both brownie mixes according to the  instructions on the boxes.  Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan.   Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes  out clean.

Allow the brownies to cool completely before slicing into pieces.

Prepare the chocolate pudding by whisking  together the milk and both packets of chocolate pudding.  Allow the  mixture to thicken.

In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment,  add the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract.  Whip on  high-speed until stiff peaks form.

In a trifle dish, put a layer of half of the chocolate pudding, followed  by half the brownies, followed by half the whipped cream.  Repeat the  layers with the remaining ingredients.

Garnish with shaves chocolate (if desired) and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
