Instructions

BROWNIES

  • Heat oven to 350°F. Prepare a 9x13-inch baking dish with non-stick spray or GOOP.
  • In a large bowl add flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt. Whisk together ingredients until they are fully incorporated.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl using a hand-held mixer, beat the eggs, sugar, butter, and vanilla until light and fluffy.
  • With the mixer off, add in the flour mixture. Turn mixer on low and mix until ingredients are well combined.
  • Pour brownies into a prepared baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes at 350°F. Brownies are done when an inserted toothpick is removed with crumbs but not wet batter.

  • In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, and the cool whip. Blend until smooth.
  • Spread mixture on top of cooled brownies.

PUDDING LAYER

  • In a medium bowl combine the milk and pudding.
  • Using a hand mixer, beat on medium speed until thickened (2-3 minutes). Carefully spread on top of the cream cheese layer.
