More news!

Ed and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary on Friday, February 15! Daniel and Erin and Ed and I went to Outback Steakhouse in Parkersburg for dinner that evening and had a wonderful time. There is nothing like having a delicious dinner and spending time with those that you love the most, hm? *smile* To the left is a picture of Ed and me coming down the aisle after our wedding ceremony was over. My, but we look so young!! *smile* What a wonderful day that was!!
I wanted to share a dessert recipe with you, especially for the chocolate lovers! I fixed this for the carry-in dinner that we had on Pastor Appreciation Sunday. Now, I am not particularly fond of sweets. Oh, I'll eat a poptart or cookie in the morning when I have my coffee but other than that, I can take it or mostly leave it! Anywayyyy......anytime that I fix this trifle, I get raves on it! So here it is and it is really easy to fix!!

Chocolate Trifle:
2 packages of premade brownies (i.e.Little Debbie or Freshleys or you can make a 9X13 of brownies from a mix. I don't think you'll use the entire pan of brownies.)
2 small packages of instant chocolate pudding
2 small packages of instant white chocolate pudding
1 large container of Cool Whip
Chocolate Syrup
Caramel Syrup
Butterfinger Candy Bar crushed
Break up one box of the brownies or half of the homemade brownies into bite size pieces and place in the bottom of trifle dish.
Mix both packages of the chocolate pudding mix with 2 1/2 cups of cold milk. Do the same with the white chocolate pudding. Put a layer of the white chocolate pudding over the crumbled brownies. Next put a layer of the chocolate pudding. Then a layer of Cool Whip. Sprinkle half of the crushed candy bar over the Cool Whip. Drizzle the syrups over the this. Repeat the layering process. This will more than fill the trifle dish. Again, top the Cool Whip with the remaing crushed candy bar. Crisscross lines of the syrups across the top. Chill for at least one hour before serving.
You could also sprinkle pecan bits over each layer if you like along with the crushed candy bar.
