Christmas in a Bowl

As stated yesterday, I'm going to try to cut back on what I write and get straight to the wonderfully delicious recipe; especially seeing that tomorrow is Christmas!  I really hope that everyone's holiday season is going as well as mine is, because I know that it can be a stressful time.  We just need to remember that it should really be a time about family and friends, which is how I'm choosing to spend my holiday this year.  It's been eight years since I've been back home to Michigan for Christmas, and even though it might be cold, snowy, and icy, it's so beautiful up here and I'm having a great time!

Now, let's get to the recipe!  A great holiday treat!

Christmas in a Bowl
Printer-Friendly Version

2 boxes of Dark Chocolate Ghirardelli Brownies
1 or 2 large boxes of cook and serve chocolate pudding (depending on how much filling you want)
1 small box (3.4 oz.) white chocolate pudding mix
1 cup skim milk
1 (16 oz.) container of cool whip
¼ cup crushed candy canes
2 Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark bars, broken into pieces

Cook the brownies according to package directions.  Once done, set aside to cool.

Prepare the cook and serve chocolate pudding according to package directions, then allow to cool completely.  (If you want to save time, you could use instant chocolate pudding)

Next, place the white chocolate pudding mixture into a bowl and whisk together with the skim milk until it begins to thicken.  Fold in the container of whip cream and the crushed candy canes.  Place in the fridge for 1-2 hours to help set.

To assemble:
In a trifle dish, or large bowl, place a layer of the white chocolate peppermint mixture.  Next, add on a layer of the dark chocolate brownies, then top with some of the chocolate pudding.  After that, add on a little of the peppermint bark pieces, and then repeat the process.
