Death by Chocolate mmmm

Hello! I'm Alyssa, Stephen's sister. My designated position in our household is the baker, and whenever Stephen comes home (which is far too rare an occasion) I handle most of the gluten free baking. i try and make stephen as many goodies as possible, because it seems so hard to find good gluten free goodies! but as any food would, stephen scoped out the l.a. scene and has devoted some of his spare time to finding the best available gluten free options.

Though i am not restricted to a gluten free diet by any means, I have become quite the connoisseur of all that is gluten free, since my taste buds are not used to it I can pick out flavors well.

My absolute favorite is a trifle called Death by Chocolate.

Death by Chocolate Recipe
-2 pans of brownies ( if using brownie mix, two separate bags of brownie mix. I use Pamela's products brand. and i always bake for less than directed!)
-2 containers of cool whip lite, at room temp
-chocolate pudding (using this recipe)
because it is more reliable to be gluten free than the boxed kind! I also make two batches of it to ensure there is enough.
-one bag of toffee bits (normally found in the baking section by the chocolate chips)

Once the brownies are cooled, get your favorite trifle dish ready for assembly.
-break up brownies and cover the bottom of the dish.
-add pudding to cover the brownie layer.
-add cool whip on top of the pudding (it doesn't have to be perfect!)
-sprinkle some toffee bits
-REPEAT! until all ingredients are gone.
-put in refrigerator until ready to serve. you can take it out a few
minutes before serving. some people like it room temperature but some
people like it very cold.
-enjoy, it is very chocolate-y, hence the name death by chocolate,
which is lovingly replaced by the acronym "DBC" in our household!

I'll be guest blogging often with more recipes and ideas for mixes.
