Brownie & Toffee Trifle
I know this is old news, but…. can we just take a moment to remember how insanely amazing smart phone technology is?
I just can’t get past it. I know they’ve been around for more than a few years, and at this point we’re all just like, “oh, something new and awesome? That’s so 2 years ago. Whatevs.”
But, I mean…. look at these things! I can literally use this teeny, tiny little brick made of glass to monitor my heart rate, send calendar events to my husband’s phone, GPS stalk Facebook friends who may be nearby, get directions to the nearest ATM, track my cycle (uh, yep, that cycle), read my books, check my blog stats, watch TV, manage my finances, and an endless number of other amazing things.
Oh, and make phone calls.
And use it as a Wi-Fi hot spot.
Geez! Who came up with this thing?!
So here’s my segue into the recipe:
This trifle is basically like a smart phone. Because it’s amazing…. annnnnd it has a bunch of different great things. Heath Bits, Cool Whip, brownie chunks, chocolate pudding– your basic arsenal of ridiculously delicious food items.
So….. that analogy pretty much works, right?
This is another recipe out of the family cookbook archives, and I love it when it makes an appearance at family gatherings. It’s so simple and easy to put together: brownies, pudding, Cool Whip, toffee bits, layered and done! And it tastes like a chocolate heaven.
This trifle is perfect for summer too, since it’s so creamy and cool! Bake the brownies (you can even use a box mix!) the night before or first thing in the morning, and assembly is a snap when it’s time to serve!
