Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 (19.8 oz.) package brownie mix
2 (3.9 ounce) packages instant chocolate pudding mix
1 (16 ounce) package frozen whipped topping, thawed
3 (1.4 ounce) bars chocolate covered English toffee (I use Skor bars, frozen and then crunched up.)
Optional: 1/2 c. coffee liqueur OR chocolate liqueur OR raspberry liqueur

Directions:
Directions:
1. Prepare brownies according to package directions. Cook for the full amount of time and a little more, so they come out a bit on the dry side. Let cool.

2. Mix pudding according to package directions.

3. In a glass serving bowl, layer in the following order: 1/2 of the brownies, crumbled; 1/2 of the pudding; 1/3 of the crunched up candy bars; 1/2 of the whipped topping. (If using optional liqueur, pour 1/4 c. on top of each brownie layer before the pudding.)

4. Repeat layers in same order. Crumble last of crunched candy bars on top before serving.

5. Refrigerate. Best if made the day before you serve it.

Personal Notes:
I am embarrassed at how easy this is to make. I usually double or triple the recipe because everyone always wants to take some home. Also, there are so many fun variations. Add M&Ms for a more colorful dessert, or add layers of fresh strawberries for a heavenly accent. Some people use raspberry pudding instead of chocolate pudding, and then top with fresh raspberries. Nuts can be added, or chocolate chips, or peanut brittle, or it can be topped with chocolate-dipped strawberries or cherries. The options are endless!
