Caramel Brownie Lasagna with brownie, caramel, whipped cream and chocolate pudding for a layered dessert that will feed a crowd, or your hungry children!
Caramel Brownie Lasagna is about as delicious and fabulous as it sounds. In fact, it is rather additive and has pretty much all the ingredients to be one of the best desserts ever.
I’m sorry, but it does.
Why do I say sorry, well, if you make it, chances are people are going to ask for the recipe. If you make it, people will flock to you in droves wondering how this recipe comes together. If you make it, you may be responsible for people hiding in the dark at 2:00 am eating this out of the refrigerator with or without a spoon. If you can live with that, read on. Apparently those consequences didn’t bother me any because I made it. And yes, it is delightful.
I needed to make a large dessert for a luncheon I was attending at church. As the wife of an elder, we attend many gatherings, most that require food. 🙂 Being that I like to make different recipes than my usual ones, and the fact it doesn’t hurt to kill two birds with one blogging stone, I wanted to come up with something new for this luncheon.
Caramel Brownie Lasagna
A brownie mix was bought the last time I went “Krogering” and I had an idea in mind. Instead of a trifle, what about a dessert with repeated layers in a casserole dish. Kind of like a lasagna. It would serve many people, you know, food for a crowd, and the flavors would blend so every bite would have chocolate brownie, chocolate pudding, whipped cream, caramel and more brownie on top. It would also sit in the fridge overnight so not only the flavors in the caramel brownie lasagna would blend, but I would have to make anything on a Sunday morning while trying to usher 6 people out the door.
Can I get an “Amen”?
I didn’t spend much time or money on this dessert. I would say the total cost was about $6. You can spend a little less if you buy all ingredients on sale. The biggest cost was the Cool Whip, which was not on sale. I had bought about 8 Cool Whip containers over Christmas when they were about $.77 each. I don’t know where they all went. I’m sure to good use. 😉
