For some reason, I only make this once a year serving at our annual Irish Christmas buffet. A favorite of my son, Miles, at the end of the evening, this is always scraped clean!
Ingredients: 2 boxes of instant chocolate pudding mixed with 4 cups of skim milk then set aside in refrigerator. (I prefer skim – makes a lighter consistency as well as lower fat.) Crush up 25 mini Heath Bars, small tub of low-fat Cool Whip, one batch of brownies and Kahlua.
Prepare one box of brownie mix ahead of time. I HATE brownies from a mix but it is a great shortcut idea. I prefer to make up a big batch of Barefoot Contessa’s Outrageous Brownies. I keep these on hand in the freezer during Christmas or for end of the school year parties when I have to bring a last minute dessert. They freeze beautifully.
Grab a cylinder trifle container similar to the one pictured. Layer brownies and sprinkle with Kahlua. Continue with layer of chocolate pudding, half of the Cool Whip container, then sprinkle with crushed Heath Bars. Repeat. Cover with Saran wrap and it can easily be made a day of time. Enjoy!
