Guest Blogger: Emily from Georgie Tees

I am thrilled to have Emily from Georgie Tees here as my first guest. =) I was fortunate to attend a girls night with Emily where she made this delicious dessert. Since I don't cook, it didn't seem right for me to post a recipe. Emily was gracious enough to come and share with you!! I loved every bite of this delicious, rich, trifile...

You don’t “trifle” with a girls night in!

When I get together with my girlfriends it’s all about the food strengthening our friendship. But you can only chat/gossip/laugh hysterically so long before you get hungry. If you’ve opted for a girls night in rather than a girls night out, may I suggest an indulgence as decadent as the stories you’ll be telling? This chocolate trifle is one of my favorite desserts to make because it looks beautiful, tastes fabulous and serves a large group and yet is super easy to make.

Maybe when I have something other than my fridge-meets-stove-meets-sink, everything-within-reaching-distance kitchen I’ll go more gourmet with the desserts. For now I go with what can be made without a lot of counter space…and fridge space, thanks to the Danimals, Go-gurts, Costco-size carton of grapes and multiple Tupperware containers that litter my fridge!

If you don’t have a girls night in already planned get it on the calendar now. Yes, this chocolate trifle is that important! Feel free to add your own flair, whether it’s sliced strawberries, turtle brownies or gourmet chocolate shavings. Whatever you do, enjoy it with good friends. As my husband’s grandfather used to say, “Everything tastes better when shared.”

Decadent Chocolate Trifle
1 (19.8 oz) package brownie mix
1 (3.9 oz) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1/2 cup water
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (8 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (12 oz) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (8 oz) bag Heath bar bits
Chocolate and caramel sauce for drizzling

Prepare brownie mix according to package directions and cool completely. Cut into 1 inch squares. In a large bowl combine pudding mix, water and sweetened condensed milk. Mix until smooth, then fold in 8 ounces whipped topping until no streaks remain.

In a trifle bowl or glass serving dish place half the brownies, half the pudding mixture and half the 12-oz. container of whipped topping. Sprinkle with Heath bar bits and drizzle with chocolate and caramel. Repeat layers. Crumble a Heath bar candy bar into large chunks and dollop in the center. Refrigerate 8 hours before serving.


Go show Emily some groupie love at, you most. def. need to check out her Britany Spears look alike photos! You will die. The picture isn't touched up, those legs are hers! Are you jealous? I am! She has had 4 children, and still has a smokin' hot bod! Oh, and eats trifle too! Can't wait for another girls night to see what Emily brings next time!
