Bailey's Irish Brownie Trifle

Last year Scott and Tracy went over to some friends' house for dinner on St. Patty's Day and  needed to bring a dessert.  There was no time to go to the store.  This dessert can be quickly whipped up with things found in most pantries.  Since it was so good, of course she will be making it again this year.  You can leave out the Bailey's and make it kid friendly too!

Ingredients:
  • Box of Brownie Mix (and whatever it requires)
  • 1/2 Cup Cool Whip Plus more to top
  • About 3 tablespoons of Toffee Bits
  • 2 1/2 Cups of Milk
  • 5.9 oz Box of Instant Chocolate Pudding
  • 2 tablespoons Bailey's Irish Cream Liquor
**Makes about 5 Servings

Bake the Brownies as directed on the box and let them cool completely.  Place a layer of brownies in the bottom of a trifle dish then sprinkle layer of toffee bits.
In bowl combine 2 1/2 cups of milk and box of instant pudding mix and whisk together.  Fold in coolwhip and Bailey's.  Next, pour pudding mixture on top of the layer of brownie and toffee.  Top with a little more coolwhip, a small piece of brownie and a little more toffee.  Refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

This can also be made with out the Bailey's and it is delicious too.
