Very good. Hubby rated this 5 stars with the first bite. I did not have toffee bars, so I added chocolate chips and pecan pieces instead....turned out great. Thanks for this new dessert recipe.

This seemed a little thin on the brownies. I think it needs more/thicker brownie layer. More like two boxes of brownies. Or make sure that your trifle bowl is on the smaller side instead of large, like mine. I tried the new cook and serve pudding that is fat free and sugar free, thinking it would have a richer pudding flavor, but I didn't notice it as anything better. I added some dark chocolate syrup to the brownie layer and used real whipped cream instead of Cool Whip. I topped the top layer with a dusting of cocoa powder and toasted sliced almonds. This looks pretty layered in the trifle bowl, but when you go to serve it, it is not so great looking. It looks like a big sloppy brown and white blob.

Absolutely delicious! I did not have a punch bowl, so I had to make some minor changes. I just made one box of pudding and layered it on top of the pan of brownies, added the cool whip and then the candy topping. I like making it this way because it is easier to store and transport for those potluck dinners. I have also found it to be yummier if it is refrigerated over night. I have also tried crumbling oreos on top of the whipped cream instead of using toffee or it is also good without the candy layer at all! Defintely a winner!

Excellent! The only additional thing I added was caramel ice cream topping in each layer. Yummy!!

Folks, if you don't have a trifle bowl, get one!! It helps the presentation...anywho, this turned out great! All my guests loved it- but next time I'd use a lot more brownies in it and less pudding & cream. And use Heath bits that are already crushed for you- saves on prep time!!

I made some modifications to this recipe to make it low fat. I used Fat free pudding & Cool whip. I also found a low fat brownie mix & then used a low carb candy bar. It was delicious!

This is so easy it is always a little embarassing to hear all of the raves when I serve it to friends. To add even another chocolate punch, try drizzling hot fudge sauce from a jar between the whipped topping and brownie layers.

This is the best tasting slop I've ever had in my life! We've had this 3 times now and I enjoy it a tiny bit more when the brownies are a little overdone, as I find they get pretty soft when they are in the pudding.
