Desserts = Recipe Cards

It seems like forever since I've posted anything...actually, it has been over 2 weeks--Holy Cow!

Thank you to everyone that gave me your recipe's and ideas for our Christmas dessert. All of them looked so yummy. I have to admit, I took the super easy way out. I went to the best chocolatier in the south, Peterbrooke, (based in Jacksonville, FL with stores across the South East) and picked up one of the "Make at Home Truffle Cake". I simply added eggs and butter and we noshed on fabulous chocolaty goodness after filets, twice baked potatoes, and green bean bundles.

However, I still chose a winner for the recipe cards! I have not made these yet, but totally plan to when we make it back home. Emily's "Death By Chocolate" is a heavenly mix of chewy brownies, creamy pudding, cold whipped cream and crunch toffee...my favorite things!

For those of you that missed her recipe, here it is:

Death by Chocolate
The easy version

1 (18.25 ounce) package brownie mix

1 (3.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed

6 (1.4 ounce) bars chocolate covered toffee bars, frozen and crushed

In a 9x13 in pan, bake brownie mix according to package directions. Cool and crumble. Make pudding, according to package directions, with milk. In a large trifle or other glass serving bowl, place half of the crumbled cake. Spread half of the pudding over that. Top with half of the whipped topping, sprinkled with half the crumbled candy bars. Repeat layers in the same order. Refrigerate until serving.

The hard(er) version: Same as above but make your own brownies from scratch.

Congrats Emily! I will contact you for details about your recipe cards.
