Instructions
  1. Prepare brownie mix or cake according to package directions and cool completely. Cut into 1 inch squares. (If using cake mix, which I prefer, bake in jelly roll pan)
  2. In a large bowl, combine pudding mix, water and sweetened condensed milk. Mix until smooth, then fold in 8 ounces of Cool Whip® until no streaks remain.
  3. In a trifle bowl, arrange in layers 1/2 of the brownies, 1/2 of the pudding mixture, and 1/2 of the 12 ounce carton of Cool Whip®. Repeat those layers again with the remaining brownies, pudding and Cool Whip.
  4. Shave the chocolate bar into curls with a potato peeler and garnish the top. *You can also substitute, or add your favorite nut, sprinkled on top.
  5. Refrigerate 8 hours before serving.
Recipe Notes

Note: For a lighter/spongier version of this, use a regular chocolate cake mix instead of brownies. Bake the cake in a large jellyroll pan so it is thin and can be easily cut into squares.
