New Year's Dessert Guaranteed to Please

This recipe was given to me by one of my quilting friends. It has become a favorite around here for every occasion.

I make it every year when we go to our friend's New Year's Day Open House.

Chocolate Cloud

1 Box Chocolate Brownie Mix
1 Box Chocolate Mousse Dessert
2 containers of Cool Whip (thawed)
2 -3 Heath Bars (crushed up)

Make brownies according to instructions on box. Cool completely and into squares. Make chocolate mousse according to instructions on box.

In a tall trifle-style glass bowl, make a layer of brownies on the bottom, then layer with about 1/3 of the chocolate mousse, sprinkle on some of the crushed Heath Bars. Layer about 1/3 of the cool whip. Again sprinkle with some crushed Heath Bars. Repeat layers until the bowl is full up to the top. Top with the remaining Heath Bar crumbles.

You should get the first spoonful because it is guaranteed not to last long.


  1. Hi Stacey! I'm so excited to try this new recipe! I was at the store and could not find a chocolate mousse dessert. I was wondering if you can substitute the boxed mousse dessert with the Jello mousse dessert that's already made? Quick response would be greatly appreciated, as I am planning to make this tonight.



    1. Yes, if I can't find the chocolate mousse, I use pudding. Yum. Enjoy!
