I needed a special dessert but couldn't decide what to make. This dessert was born of my favorite flavors: mocha, cream cheese, and chocolate. I promise it will not disappoint! Garnish with espresso powder, chocolate shavings, and chopped nuts.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a 9x13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

  • Combine brownie mix, vegetable oil, eggs, and water in a large bowl. Mix with a wooden spoon until well blended. Spread into the prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted 2 inches from the side of the pan comes out clean, 22 to 25 minutes. Let cool completely, about 30 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar, and coffee in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth. Beat in 1 cup whipped topping. Spread over cooled brownies and refrigerate while preparing pudding.

  • Whisk milk and instant chocolate pudding in a large bowl until smooth, about 2 minutes. Let stand until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.

  • Spread pudding over the cream cheese layer. Spread remaining whipped topping over the pudding layer. Garnish with walnuts, chocolate shavings, and espresso powder. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
