A Recipe for Chocolate Lovers

OK I have to confess....  I love Chocolate. I have a stash of chocolate recipes that I figure I might as well share. So here goes with the first installment. I've made an image that you can download and print up so that it will make a sort of recipe card. Make sure you click "print to fit page" if you have that option on your printer. I also will provide a copy and paste version too, after the image.

Chocolate Brownie Trifle 

Utensils needed

13x9 pan
trifle or glass bowl


2 brownie mixes made according to directions on box
2 16 ounce containers of whipped topping or homemade whipped cream
2 boxes of chocolate mousse mix made according to package directions
6-8 bars of chocolate toffee bars, such as Skor or Heath bars
1 large chocolate bar for chocolate shavings


Freeze the chocolate toffee bars and chocolate bar.
Bake two packages of brownie mixes according to package directions. Let cool.
While brownies are baking, mix two packages of the mousse mix according to package directions.

Let chill in refrigerator.

After brownies have cooled, scrape or crush the brownies until they are crumbly. Put a layer of brownies in the trifle or glass bowl. Next, put a layer of chocolate mousse on top, being sure to spread it evenly over the brownies. Spread the whipped topping on top of the mousse. Take the toffee bars out of the freezer and crush them. Sprinkle the crushed chocolate toffee bars on top of the whipped topping. Continue layering in this way until you finish with a layer of whipped topping. Take the chocolate bar from the freezer and use a vegetable peeler to peel some chocolate curls from the chocolate bar. Sprinkle the chocolate curls on top of the whipped topping.

If you have any toffee pieces left you can sprinkle those on top too.
