Chocolate Trifle

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

Prepare brownie mix according to package directions and cool completely. Cut into 1 inch squares.
In a 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 a trifle bowl or glass serving dish, place half of the brownies, half of the pudding mixture and half of the 12 ounce container of whipped topping. Repeat layers. Shave chocolate onto top layer for garnish. Refrigerate 8 hours before serving.

(I used about 1/2 of a pan of Outrageous Brownies--recipe listed a few months ago, instead of a brownie mix. Next time I make this I will add about an additional 1/4 cup milk to the chocolate pudding to make it a little softer. I used real whipped cream in the layers just because that's what I had and it was heavenly. I also topped it with a few Reeces Peanut Butter Cups. Next time I think I'll put a few in the layers too.)
