WOW! I made this two times - once exactly according to recipe, and second with a few alterations. The recipe version was fantastic, and I did not think it was too sweet. It was very rich, and I thought there was a strong cool whip flavor, and not enough chocolate. Nonetheless, it was delicious and everyone agreed. The second time I followed some suggestions here, and the dessert won me first place in a contest this weekend! I mixed the pudding and water, and in a separate bowl whipped 1/2 pint heavy cream and 3 tbsp sugar, then folded in the cream with the pudding/water. I also did use the french vanilla cool whip in place of the plain (12 oz). So, I layered brownies, caramel, heath toffee bits, chocolate whipped cream, and french vanilla cool whip. Repeat! It was PHENOMENAL. I had so many requests for the recipe, and I saw numerous people going back for 2nds and 3rds. It was a major hit, and will be a staple dessert dish for me! Thank you!!

This review is a little late but this recipe is EXCELLENT! I made it first for a fake thanksgiving a week early with family that was going out of town, it was very good, but I don't like whipped topping and I found it had entirely too much of that. So i made it again for Thanksgiving the next week and it was soooo amazing! But I made a few adjustments... in the brownie layer I addred about half a bottle of caramel topping (as you would use on ice cream) in the brownie pan before it went into the oven. (really good...) then in the pudding layer, instead of folding in the whipped topping, i bought half a pint of heavy whipping cream and whipped that for about 10 minutes myself and then folded that into the pudding. It made such an incredible difference. The pudding tasted so mych richer, like custard, instead of fluffy like whipped topping. I also added bailey's in the pudding and cut strawberries, chocolate chunks - per my husband's request, and toffee bits, which made it look so pretty. But you can add pretty much anything you want and it still tastes EXCELLENT! EVERYONE who tried it loved it and my mother-in-law asked for the recipe, along with everyone else. Always nice to confirm that her son didn't make a mistake marrying me:-) YOU HAVE TO TRY THIS DESSERT, YUMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is now known among our friends as "The Dessert". Before every party, I'm asked if I'm bringing "The Dessert". It is so good! I use the brownie mixes that have some sort of chunk in them (ie. triple chocolate chunk brownies, chocolate peanut butter cup). I also whip up one cup of heavy whipping cream and add that to the condensed milk/water/pudding mix instead of using cool whip. I think this helps to make sure the sweetness isn't overdone. And for the cool whip layer, I use French Vanilla flavor instead of plain, because it gives the whole dish more flavor. You have GOT to try this, and try it my way because like I said, it's getting quite a cult following!
