Leave the title to your own guesses...but I couldn't bear to change the name. This was a college favorite of mine! I personally have never made it, I have helped, but all of the credit goes to my good friend, Tiffany. We were roommates for about a year, and she loves to cook and bake just as much as I do. So when I found this recipe on Pinterest and emailed it to her right away...she said "let's make it!" and how could I not agree? It's time consuming, that's for sure, but I promise you it is worth EVERY bite. This is by far my favorite. The first time she made it, her and I just sat there eating straight from the bowl. It is so addicting. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! The second time she made it, I had a little bit too much wine and knocked half my glass all over it...but trust me, that didn't stop us from eating it. Within 2 days this whole tub is gone, just between the two of us! Not only do I miss her, but I miss this dessert...and her MAKING it! :)
What you need:
Chocolate Pudding (2 large boxes)
Cool Whip (large container)
Heath Candy Bars (4 regular sized bars)
1. Prepare brownies according to directions on box. Any box or recipe will work, I usually bake mine in a 11″x 17″ jelly roll pan so that they bake nice and thin and get even a little crispy. For this recipe you want them fully cooked, or even slightly over-baked. Once you layer all the other ingredients it will get mushy fast if your brownies are already soft and gooey.
2. Once the brownies are baked and cooled, cut up into small, bite-sized pieces.
3. Prepare (instant) chocolate pudding according to directions. There should be two (large) boxes of pudding in the photo. If you want to fill a trifle dish you’ll need two (large) boxes.
4. Crush the Heath candy bars into small, bite-sized pieces.
5. Now you’re ready to layer…
Spoon about a third of your pudding into a trifle dish.
Add a layer of brownie pieces.
Sprinkle around some of the crushed Heath.
Drizzle on some caramel sauce.
Top with about half of the cool whip.
Keep in the refrigerator until just ready to serve. This should not be assembled more than about an hour or two before it will be served, or the brownies and candy will get too soft, and it will just be one big bowl of mush (still yummy, but not quite as nice to eat).
Stressed is Desserts spelled backwards...
Desserts and I are like peanut butter and jelly, salt and pepper, bacon and eggs....we just go so well together. And if you know, you know my "go-to" night time dessert is ice-cream. If you know me well enough, you know that I have specific brands and specific flavors within those brands that are my favorite.
