brownie trifle

1 (19.8 oz) package fudge brownie mix
1/2 cup praline or coffee flavored liquor (Kailua)
1 (3.5 oz) package instant chocolate mousse mix
8 (1.4 oz) toffee flavored candy bars, crushed (Heath)
1 (12 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
Garnish chocolate curls

Prepare brownie mix and bake in a 13x9x2 pan according to package. Let cool and crumble up. Prepare chocolate mousse according to package, omitting chilling it. Place 1/2 of crumbled brownies in bottom of 3 quart trifle dish. Top with 1/2 of the mousse. Repeat with 1/2 of crushed candy bars and whipped topping. Repeat all layers again ending with whipped topping. Garnish if desired. Chill 8 hours.

(notes from Laurie: If you’d like to make your own whipped cream, simply combine heavy whipping cream, 2 tbsp confectioners sugar, and a tbsp of vanilla (I also added some Kailua but you could stand to add more.) Also feel free to add Kailua to mousse for taste. Even a half cup didn’t come through taste-wise in my amended recipe.)
