Death By Chocolate Recipe
Can't Resist the Chocolate
If I Am Going To Die Let It Be From Chocolate!!
I think that most women would agree that there's just those certain days that just aren't good for whatever reason and the only thing that seems to make it even seem like it might get better would be with some chocolate.
When making this recipe there are several "hints" that will truly make this dish more of a success. I will be glad to share these a little later in the recipe. This recipe was given to me by a lady that I loved and respected. She knows about my love for chocolate and if your love is like mine, you really can't get enough of the taste of the chocolate. She is a great cook and I thank her for the many recipes that she did see fit to share with me.
When I first heard of the name of this dessert, I didn't believe them. The name of this dessert to me sounded like it was a joke (Death By Chocolate) We all have to die from something so I thought if I am going to die I guess, it would be nice to die by something that I love, such as chocolate. Everyone has their own guilty pleasure or a bad habit. Mine just happens to be chocolate. This is a recipe that can be made several different ways if you prefer a different candy bar, you can use a different one. You can also use the brownie mix that you prefer. There is not a specific brand that needs to be purchased.
The section listed as tips, are just some things that I have learned by trial and error on this recipe. This dish is so beautiful, when it's presented. I love to served it at Valentine's Day or at Christmas. Please don't limit making this dessert to those special occasions, make it for your friends, family, take the dessert to church functions, etc. This dessert is not for the faint of heart. The title says it all: Death by Chocolate! They are not joking. There's the brownies, the chocolate pudding and the Hershey chocolate bar. This combined together with the other chocolate in the dessert makes it super rich.
It is beautiful served in a trifle dish because you can see the different layers. I try to keep each layer separate, the best way that I can, this makes the cool whip really "pop".

Making It Pretty!
- Prepare the brownie mix as directed on the box. This will be the only cook time involved. The brownies that I usually make "from the box" have to cook for 45 minutes. Then don't forget that you will have to let these brownies cool down before you go to assemble the dessert. If you don't everything will melt and be a gooey mess.
- While the brownies are baking or cooling down, you can go ahead and mix up the two packages of chocolate jello instant pudding mix, mixed with the 3 cups of milk or you can use the pudding that is already made up and in the refrigerator section. After you get the pudding mixed up, it needs to be refrigerated until cooled and set.
- In a trifle bowl, layer the bottom with the brownies, then top with chocolate pudding, shave off or break up the chocolate candy bar and put pieces of the candy bar sprinkled into the pudding. Then top that with cool whip. Make two layers of each.
- SOME TIPS THAT WERE PASSED ON TO ME: Cut the brownies into small bite sized pieces. Freeze the candy bar before you are ready to use it and it will break easier. Use chocolate shavings on the top of the last layer of cool whip for a more attractive dish. To make the shavings use potato peeler on the side of the chocolate bar before it thaws from the freezer for elegant ringlets. I always use Duncan Hines family size brownie mix. These are gooey and good. If you were fixing this for Valentine's Day or even Christmas, you could mix your cool whip with red food coloring. This would effect the flavor just the color. This is simply my favorite chocolate dish.

Not a lot of different ingredients
Although there are not a lot of different ingredients to this dish. Some of the steps take some time so, just be aware of that.
One thing I would like to draw your attention to is the brownies. While they are not hard to make, just take into consideration the cook time of the brownies as well as the cool down time for the brownies before they can be combined with the rest of the recipe.
The chocolate pudding also after being mixed up has to be refrigerated for a brief amount of time to get it to set.
Start the bottom layer in the trifle bowl with brownies then the chocolate pudding. You can then take the small pieces of the chocolate bar and sprinkle in the pudding. Spread the cool whip over the pudding and then repeat the layers ending with cool whip on the top.
Shavings can be added to the top of the dessert for extra decoration.
