Chocolate-Raspberry Brownie Trifle

Trifles are a perfect dessert for a crowd. Easy to make, they look beautiful layered in a glass trifle bowl. There are many varieties, usually involving cake, pudding/cream and fruit. You can't go wrong with this version that includes brownies and raspberries. I first enjoyed it at a church social and had to make it again for a family dinner last week. If you are looking for a different trifle that is perfect for spring, try the Lemon-Berry Trifle I have already posted.

Chocolate-Raspberry Brownie Trifle

Brownies (1 brownie mix, made as directed and cut up into bite-sized pieces, or you could purchase store-bought brownie bites to save time)
large chocolate pudding mix
12 oz raspberries
2-3 Heath bars, crushed into pieces

Prepare pudding according to directions. Place half of the cubed brownies on the bottom of a glass bowl. Cover with half of the pudding. Layer half of the raspberries on top of the pudding. Cover with a layer of cool-whip and crushed heath bars. Repeat the layers using the rest of the ingredients.

Yeah, you really can't go wrong with a trifle - they're very attractive and impressive looking, and they usually involve creaminess and chocolate. I mean, really - does it get any better?
