I guess that’s why it’s called Death By Chocolate. What a name. I didn’t name it. I’d have named it something like A Little Piece of Chocolate Heaven. Or Just When You Think It Can’t Get any Chocolatier. Or Chocolate Covered Chocolatey Chocolate.
Well…anyway. Death By Chocolate is a recipe my mom found somewhere when I was a teenager. I remember her serving it when she wanted to make something special for company. She always put walnuts in hers…and I always picked ’em out. :) I’m not a fan of nuts in my food. But you can put walnuts in yours if you want to. I’ll just pick ’em out if I come over and share it with you. (Which I’d love to do…come over and share it with you.)
As I remember also…the original recipe called for a box of brownie mix…a box of chocolate pudding…and a container of cool whip. The way I make it now…it is all made from scratch. And Oh. My. Goodness. Do try it. You won’t be sorry.
Death By Chocolate
Recipe for Creamy Chocolate Pudding
Recipe for Fudge Brownies (with or without the chocolate chips)
¾ cup heavy whipping cream
½ t. vanilla
1 t. sugar or a few drops of stevia
1 cup pecans or walnuts, optional
In a large glass serving bowl, begin to layer your Death by Chocolate.
Cut or crumble brownies into small crumbs or pieces.
I usually cut mine into one inch squares.
Place one third of them into serving bowl.
Pour one third of your pudding over the brownie pieces.
Continue this brownie – pudding layering twice more.
Choose the cutest person you can find to whip your cream.
With beaters, whip cream until soft peaks form.
Add vanilla and sugar or stevia. Mix in with beaters.
Spread the whipped cream on top of your brownie-pudding layers.
If you’re talented and have time…put something fancy on top like put chocolate shavings. As you can see…I’m not that talented.
Oh, but look how pretty that is!!
This is the very bowl my mom always made Death By Chocolate in. I’m so thankful to have this bowl in my own kitchen now.
Okay…chocolate lovers! Come up with some excuse to make this!!! Invite someone over. Have a party. Invent a new holiday. You HAVE to make Death By Chocolate!! (Ooh, someone should invent a new holiday…JUST to celebrate CHOCOLATE!)
Anyone else a chocolate lover like I am?!
