Chocolate Chocolate Mousse Trifle

Happy Chocolate Mousse Day! Here's a recipe from Allrecipes for Chocolate Chocolate Mousse Trifle. The original recipe below calls for brownie mix, instant chocolate pudding, and whipped topping.. That makes it super easy and fast, but you can always make your own brownies and pudding and whipped cream from scratch. You can also add chocolate chips into the pudding layer for more chocolate! And, I add fresh raspberries to the top--you can also add them on top of the whipped cream layers.

Chocolate Chocolate Mousse Trifle

1 (19.8 ounce) package brownie mix  (or your own brownie recipe)
1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix (or your own chocolate pudding recipe)
1/2 cup water
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed (or real whipped cream)
1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping (or real whipped cream)
1 (1.5 ounce) bar chocolate candy

(if you're using a glass trifle bowl, you might want to do 3 layers instead of 2)

Prepare brownie mix according to package directions and cool completely. Cut into 1 inch squares.
In large bowl, combine pudding mix, water, and sweetened condensed milk. Mix until smooth, then fold in 8 ounces whipped topping until no streaks remain.
In trifle bowl or glass serving dish, place half of brownies, half of pudding mixture and half of 12 ounce container of whipped topping.
Repeat layers.
Shave chocolate on top layer for garnish. (I add raspberries on top)
Refrigerate 8 hours before serving.
