sheridan's brownie mousse trifle...

i'll be honest... i actually am not a fan of trifle:( but i love this dessert! the texture is different than a traditional trifle since it has brownie instead of cake & mouse instead of pudding. it stays moist without getting soggy. i love the flavor & you could do so many variations on it as well! you could trade the Symphony bar out for Snickers, M&M's or peanut butter cups. or if you wanted to go the mint route- use some grasshopper cookies or just some oreos. or you could add hot fudge or caramel sauce. play around with it & make it your own. have fun with your food!:)

Bite of Brownie Trifle
{Sheridan's brownie mousse trifle}

1- family sized boxed brownie mix

1- 3.9 oz. box instant chocolate jello pudding mix

1/2 cup water

1 can sweetened condensed milk

2- 8 oz. containers cool whip whipped topping, thawed

1 king size Symphony candy bar, finely chopped

Prepare brownie mix according to box directions & cool completely. Cut into 1 inch squares.

In a large bowl, combine pudding mix, water & sweetened condensed milk. Mix until smooth. Fold in 1 container cool whip. Mix until no streaks remain.

In a trifle bowl or large glass bowl: layer 1/2 of the brownies, followed by 1/2 pudding mix, then 1/2 the other cool whip container. Repeat layers. Top with candy bar & refrigerate 8 hours before serving.

This looks amazing. Is it still good if you use the low fat/fat free cool whip and fat free sweetened condensed milk?

I made this dessert a few days ago using fat free sweetened condensed milk, low fat brownie mix, and light Cool Whip, and it was insanely delicious. It was inhaled by every one and raved over. It was a real treat to be able to indulge in a decadent tasting dessert that I was able to make using low fat ingredients. Thank you for sharing this!
