Chocolate Trifle

You don't have to make it fancy.  I use to make it in a mixing bowl until I found this trifle dish at a garage sale. :-)  The original name for it is "Goo", so don't let the fancy name fool you.  It's simple!

1 family size brownie mix, prepared as directed
1 family size instant chocolate pudding mix, or two smaller packages
1 carton of cool whip, thawed
1-2 full size candy bar, or 1 cup Oreo cookies, crumbled

Option:  I usually make pudding as directed, but to add a little extra flavor, try this:
          1 small box of instant chocolate pudding
          8 oz Cool Whip
          14 oz sweet and condensed milk

  1. Prepare brownie mix according to package directions and cool completely. Cut into 1 inch squares.
  2. In a large bowl, prepare pudding as directed.  (If you're making the optional pudding mixture; combine pudding mix, water and sweetened condensed milk. Mix until smooth, then fold in 8 ounces whipped topping until no streaks remain.)
  3. In a trifle bowl or glass serving dish, place half of the brownies, half of the pudding mixture and half of the 12 ounce container of whipped topping. Repeat layers. Shave chocolate bar, or chop your favorite candy bar or oreos onto top layer for garnish.
