This recipe is a recent discovery, and has become a favorite 'Death By Chocolate' dessert. The trick is to use a brownie mix with chocolate chips in it, and use Real Whipping Cream - not Cool Whip. Trust me - it takes it to a whole new level. The chocolate layer goes from chocolate pudding to chocolate mousse, and it is Divine!
This dessert is rich - it may just kill you - but what a way to go!
Chocolate Mousse Trifle adapted from Allrecipes
1 19.8 oz. package brownie mix (use one with chocolate chips in it!)
16 oz. heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3.9 oz. package instant chocolate pudding mix.
1/2 cup water
1 14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
Chocolate Candy Bar, to shave and put on top
Make brownies according to package directions. Cool completely and cut into 1 inch squares.
Whip heavy cream with sugar and vanilla until stiff peaks form.
In a large bowl, combine pudding mix, water and sweetened condensed milk. Fold in half of the whipped cream.
In a trifle bowl, make a layer of brownies. Spread 1/3 of the chocolate mixture on top of the brownies, and then 1/3 of the whipped cream on top of that. Repeat the layers until you fill the bowl. Top with the shaved chocolate. Chill overnight. (Overnight will allow the mouse to reach it's most sublime texture!)
