If he or she likes chocolate, look no further for the perfect Valentine’s dinner finale. Make the brownies a day or 2 before, and freeze them or put them in an air tight container. Then the day of, you can throw it all together in a jiffy. You can use any pretty wine glass or margarita glass or sundae or parfait glass. Anything that will show the layers. Or for a really special presentation for a larger party you can make them in little votives with a ribbon around the center and small demitasse spoons. It is rich and a little goes a long way.
1 box Chocolate Mousse (usually found on the top shelf above the Jello puddings, in a box. You can use Milk Chocolate or Dark Chocolate, whichever you prefer. If you cannot find it, Instant Chocolate Jello Pudding works fine and is much cheaper. 1 small box for 2 servings, 1 large box for 4 or more) Prepare according to package directions1 box Duncan Hines brownie mix, (or your favorite) prepared and baked according to package directions. Cool and cut into 1 inch cubes. (Have you tried No Pudge Brownie mix? It is in a pink box and has a pig on the front. They are made with yogurt and they are REALLY good, if you want to cut the fat.)
2 to 3 Heath Candy bars, hit with a hammer to crush
1 (8 oz. ) Cool Whip (if you are watching your calories, Light is fine, or Fat Free is also good) Or if you want to make it REALLY good, you can whip your own cream with 1/4 cup powdered sugar.
Raspberries, for garnish (optional)
Starting with the brownies, put a few pieces on the bottom of your glass, then pudding then Cool Whip, then Heath Bar. Repeat one or 2 times depending on how big your glass is. End with Cool Whip and Heath Bar. Garnish with Raspberries.
