  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. Mix the brownie mix, water, vegetable oil, and eggs together in a mixing bowl until smooth, and pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the brownies shows moist crumbs, 25 to 30 minutes. Set the brownies aside, and cool completely. Use a chopstick or the end of a wooden spoon to poke holes all over the brownies, about 1/2-inch apart; drizzle the coffee liqueur all over the brownies. Let the brownies stand 5 minutes to soak up the liqueur.
  4. In a bowl, whisk the chocolate pudding mix with cold milk until thickened, about 2 minutes; allow to stand 5 more minutes to set.
  5. To assemble dessert, cut the brownies up into small cubes. Layer 1/3 of the brownies into the bottom of a glass trifle bowl, and top with a layer of pudding, then a layer of whipped topping. Repeat twice more, ending with whipped topping. Chill at least 4 hours before serving.

Yummy! Also called "Death by Chocolate" and even tastier with layers of crushed Skor bar pieces added.

I make this with Chocolate Cake instead of brownie mix (however next time I make it I will try the brownie mix) it is so good, I get great reviews every time I make it. Blanche

I make this with chocolate cake and crushed heath bars on top of the whipped cream - yummy!

I added a couple of layers of cognac-soaked raspberries...Now I have to bring this dish to all the parties!!

I make this but instead of the brownies,I used a devils food cake that I bake first.

Turned out very well! Everyone loved it!

Made this for Bunko and everyone loved it!!

Really loved this. Next time I won't use quite so much Kahlua, it was a little over powering.
