Ingredients

  • For brownies:
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 1 package (19.5 ounces) milk chocolate brownie mix (we used Pillsbury for testing)
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅓ cup vanilla non-fat Greek-style yogurt
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 14 crème de menthe chocolate layered mints (we used Andes mints for testing), cut into small pieces
  • For pudding:
  • 1 package (3.3 ounces) white chocolate instant pudding mix
  • 2 cups fat-free milk
  • For topping:
  • 3 ounces Neufchâtel cream cheese
  • ⅓ cup vanilla non-fat Greek-style yogurt
  • 4 teaspoons confectioners’ sugar
  • For mint curl decoration:
  • 6 crème de menthe chocolate layered mints (for ex., Andes Mint Candies)

Preparation

  1. For brownies, preheat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom of a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. In a medium bowl, combine brownie mix, eggs, yogurt, and vegetable oil. Stir with a spoon until well blended. Stir in mint pieces. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 22 to 28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center of brownies has moist crumbs attached. Allow brownies to cool completely. Cut into small pieces.
  2. For pudding, combine pudding mix and milk in a medium bowl. Mix according to package directions.
  3. For topping, combine cream cheese, yogurt and confectioners’ sugar in a small bowl. Beat with electric mixer until well blended.
  4. For mint curl decoration, use a vegetable peeler to make small curls by shaving down the long edge of the mint.
  5. Layer the pudding and brownies in a 3-quart trifle bowl in two layers. Spoon the topping over the top layer. Decorate with mint curls. Cover and chill until ready to serve.
  6. To serve as individual portions: Use 12 4-ounce jelly jars. Spoon one tablespoon of pudding in each jar. Then cut approximately 2″ square brownie and break it apart into 4-6 chunky pieces. Drop brownie pieces into the jar on top of pudding. Repeat process with one tablespoon of pudding and chunky brownie pieces until jar is full. Finish with one tablespoon of topping and garnish with mint curl decoration. Cover and chill until ready to serve.This method yields approximately 12 servings.
