Double Chocolate Mocha Trifle

This scrumptious dessert looks complicated, but it is easy, feeds many folks, and makes a beautiful presentation. Try it the next time you are asked to bring dessert to a Holiday gathering!

Double Chocolate Mocha Trifle

Trifle bowl (cheap and easy to find at Walmart, BBB)

1 pkg brownie mix (plus ingredients to make brownies)

1 3/4 cups cold milk

2 pkgs (3.4 oz each) white chocolate instant pudding and pie filling ***can substitute vanilla if you can't find white chocolate

1/4 cup warm water

4 t. instant coffee granules

2 cups thawed frozen whipped topping

1 bag Heath English toffee bits (on baking aisle but sometimes not available at Walmart)

Bake brownies according to directions in a 9x13 dish. Cool completely. In a large bowl, whisk pudding mix into milk until mixture begins to thicken. Dissolve coffee granules in warm water; add to pudding mixture, mixing well. Fold in whipped topping, mixing well. Cut brownies into 1-inch cubes (I spray pizza cutter with Pam to cut easily). Layer 1/3 of brownie cubes onto bottom of your trifle bowl. Top with 1/3 of pudding mixture, pressing lightly and smoothing with spatula. Then sprinkle a thin layer of Heath. Repeat layers two more times. Chill 30 minutes before serving.

Serves 12.
