This is a great party dessert for the chocolate lover in all of us. Optional: decorate top with canned whipped topping swirl and shaved chocolate curls. Make sure you get a little of each layer in every serving. Enjoy!

"Excellent" is all I can say about this dessert. I read some reviews and took what I thought would work best with this dessert. I used 5 Skorr bars. I used the fat free white chocolate instant pudding but used 2% milk in making the pudding. Use the amount of milk that the box suggests. I also used 3 boxes of the pudding - 2 with the coffee ingredient and 1 without, which I used as the middle filling. (If you can find my picutre I submitted with my trifle bowl you can see how nice it turned out. I made the whipping cream and used a layer on the top. Adding the extra pkg of pudding layer and a top layer of whipping cream you do not have to double the recipe. Also I drizzled Hersheys Syrup over each brownie layer (3 layers). So the layers went like this: Bottom layer -thin layer of whipping cream, brownie layer, syrup, toffe pieces, white chocolate coffee pudding/whipping cream mixture, brownie layer, syrup, toffee pieces, white chocolate pudding/cream mixture (remember no coffee in this batch), brownie layer, syrup, toffee pieces, coffee pudding mixture, a nice layer of whipping cream, last Skorr bar pieces and syrup drizzled over the top. It is beautiful to look at too. Delicious and thanks for offering the recipe of this scrumptuous treat!!! Read More

After all the rave reviews for this recipe I just made it. Having company tomorrow and they like sweet creamy desserts. Is there a mistake in the amount of milk? 1-3/4 c. of milk to 2 boxes of pudding is not nearly enough. Even had trouble putting it together it is so thick. Very very diappointed but am sure it is because of a mistake in the recipe. Has anyone else had this problem. I will serve it anyway but have to add some sort of topping or chocolate sauce. Sorry for the negative comments. I am certainly not a novice cook. Read More

Absolutely amazing! I did everything but assemble it the night before our party and it was so quick to put together the day of! I made a couple of changes by substituting a devil's food cake mix for brownies and after the cake cooled I lightly damped it with some Kalua. The rest was done according to the recipe and it was delicious! The recipe doesn't make enough whip topping but next time I'll just double the pudding cool whip mixture. Great recipe. Definitely give this one a try. Read More

Added 1 cup of Kahlua after cake was cooled. Let it soak up overnight in the fridge. Followed the recipe exactly from there. Got rave reviews from people at work. Read More

I've made this for a few years now, and ALWAYS receive requests for the recipe. One friend demands it every year for holiday parties. So good--I do add a little more coffee flavor to make it extra mocha flavored. Delicious! Read More

I am wondering if everyone who is complaining about there not being enough milk for the pudding realizes that after they mix the milk with the pudding they have to mix it with the coolwhip as well?? The pudding itself is not a layer. I have been making a frosting recipe for years that calls for mixing one box of pudding with one cup of milk and then mixing with coolwhip and cream cheese and when all mixed together it is not too thick at all. If the directions are followed exactly there doesn't need to be any changes at all. Read More

When my teenage neighbor boy took a bite he said "This is the best thing I have ever had in my mouth." I love how fancy it looks and how very easy it is too make. Read More
