  • Combine brownie mix, eggs, water, and oil in a large bowl; stir until well blended. Spread mixture evenly into prepared pan.

  • Bake in preheated oven until top is dry and edges have started to pull away from the sides of the pan, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Cut into 1-inch squares.

  • Beat cream cheese in a large bowl with an electric mixer. Add milk and pudding mix; beat until smooth. Fold in whipped topping until well incorporated into filling.

  • Place 1/2 of the brownie squares at the bottom of a trifle bowl or glass serving dish; top with filling. Shave 1/2 of the chocolate bar onto filling using a vegetable peeler. Repeat with remaining brownies, filling, and chocolate bar shavings. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour.

Cook's Note:

I use a milk chocolate bar containing almonds and toffee chips for the chocolate shavings.

Editor's Note:

Friends and family loved it so much they insisted that I serve 2 trifles using this recipe so there would be enough to go around for second helpings! I added a layer of raspberry pie filling and sprinkled slivered almonds on the top along with the almond chocolate bar shavings. It's a WINNER! Read More

Made it with 2 of the small pudding boxes. White chocolate pudding and used Heath bar crumbles on top. Amazing! Read More

Pretty Easy & Delicious! I did modify it slightly by adding a layer of Red Raspberry pie filling. And instead of almond bark I used Heath Toffee bits. So Good!! Read More

I already made this and it was delish. I am going to make it next week but like when I made it before I was confused if you mix the cream cheese with the pudding. I did mix the cream cheese and pudding. Read More

I had trouble creaming the cream cheese the pudding mix and milk. I had little pieces of cream cheese that showed up in the dark chocolate mixture. Next time I make it I will slowly add the milk to get a creamy texture. Even with this minor problem it tasted great. Read More
