Death By Chocolate

Halloween is a great time to get candy. Forget all the other stuff about it, I just want the candy. The good stuff. I mean KitKat's, Snickers, Reeses PB Cups or Pieces, the works! If you get enough of one type of the good stuff, here's a recipe for you. If you don't, then go buy some candy.

Over at Today's Housewife the recipe for this weekend is ... desserts! No matter what the reason our church is having a meal, I usually bring this. I just change up the candy I use. The few times that I haven't brought it I received multiple comments of disbelief that I didn't bring it. And we're Southern Baptist ... to go to church means food! (Well, it means more than that... a lot more. But we do eat a lot!)

I originally got this recipe from a Pampered Chef party, but I've changed it slightly and it is delicious.

Death By Chocolate
-1 box family size brownie mix -- any kind -- I usually do fudgy chocolate -- bake as directed for 9x13 pan
-2 boxes 4 serving size instant chocolate pudding
-Big tub cool whip
-Caramel ice cream sauce
-Chopped or crushed candy bar of choice -- lots. Put it this way, if I use PB Cups, I get 2 bags of individually wrapped full size cups. Or I'll use 1 box of Whoppers. Butterfingers are a big hit. If you can find them in the little bite-size balls that's even better. You'll need quite a bit.
-A large serving bowl -- when I say large, I mean I use my big punch bowl to serve this. A clear bowl gives the best effect.

Bake brownies as directed on box for 9 x 13 pan. Allow to cool completely. Prepare chocolate pudding as directed. Chop or crush your candy bar of choice.

When brownies are cooled, cut into 1/2" squares. Take 1/2 of your brownies and push them down into your bowl. Top with 1/2 of your chocolate pudding. Top that with 1/2 of your cool whip. Put a thin layer of caramel sauce over the cool whip and put 1/2 of your crushed candy bars on that. Then do it all again! On the top you can get decorative with your candy leaving whole pieces of PB Cups or candy bars on top. Yummy!
