Butterscotch is one of my favorite flavors aside from Caramel. I got an idea for this recipe one night, and then work decided to have a potluck and I knew this recipe would be great for a crowd so I decided to make it for my co-workers. You can also make it using individual servings too. The thing I love about trifles is the ingredients all meld together to get one spoonful of ooey gooey goodness. The mixture of the brownie, butterscotch and the heath bar crunch really make you wanting seconds, or maybe that is just me. I say make it, and be your own judge just don’t say I didn’t warn you when you go back for more. 😉
1 (9×13-inch pan) batch of brownies (packaged mix or homemade – I used Steph’s homemade version) ~ 2 (1 oz ounce) package instant butterscotch pudding mix (I used sugar free) ~ Milk for pudding (according to package) ~ 16oz tub of frozen whipped topping, thawed (CoolWhip) ~ approximately 1/2 cup toffee bits
Prepare the butterscotch pudding according to the package and place in the fridge to chill. Bake the brownies according to the box or directions. Allow to cool 5-10 minutes then remove from the pan, no need to be gently. Break into chunks and place half the brownies into the bottom of a trifle dish. Spoon half the pudding on top of the brownies, add half the whipped cream, then sprinkle on the toffee bits.
Repeat the layers again ending with the toffee bits. Refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight before serving.

Um…YUM! That looks great! I like the toffee bit addition…a bit of crunch. I’ll bet it was a hit. Have a great week!
It does add a little surprise. I put it in the kitchen and I couldn’t believe how quickly it disappeared!

Butterscotch and caramel are my favorites,too,
Especially when mixed with chocolate.
This is going straight into my recipe folder!
Love, SMD’s momma
You really can’t go wrong with those 3 flavors. Thank you!

This looks amazing. I love a good trifle. I never think to use butterscotch.
Thanks for linking to the baker’s brownies!
It was a random thing for me too, but I love butterscotch. I think it was the coffee recipe that triggered it. 🙂
Of course. The brownies came out great!
When it’s described as “ooey gooey goodness” how could I not want to try this!! I am literally salivating at my desk right now…and so hungry!!
Sorry to make the stomach grumble but it does make me smile to hear it! 😉
Jana @ Jana Says says
That is all.
Haha! I take it you approve?! 😉
This looks incredible! Definitely adding it to my list of things to make this fall!
Thank you. Hope you like it!
I have that same reversible trifle/cake dish. Trifles have seriously become one of my favorite desserts to make but I’ve only experimented with fruity ones. I’ll have to venture out with some chocolate and butterscotch next time. Looks amazing!
Isn’t it awesome!! Yes venture into the chocolate. My Mom’s friend made this Cherry and brownie one awhile ago and i was hooked.
You had me at toffee…seriously, I am having ppl over next week for a Fall shindig and I may need to make this!
That would be a good addition to the party! 😉
Kate @ Green Fashionista says
This looks AMAZING, may have to whip these up for a yummy treat over the weekend 🙂
Hope you give it a try. It was hard waiting for it to sit, but it was worth it.
Oh the ooey gooey goodness of this!!! I love butterscotch too! I might save this for later….much later…when my fat pants are fat pants again haha!
Haha! I feel your pain girl!

These look so good- I looove butterscotch and am always looking for recipes that incorporate it- yum!
It is my favorite but I tend to forget about it at times. Time to bring it back!! Haha!
Oh yeah, this sounds amazing! I love the addition of Heath into any trifle, too, to give it a different consistency and crunch 🙂
It really does add a nice crunch. I love heath bar.
Kateri Von Steal says
Oooh I like the individual trifle idea – But man oh man the WHOLE TRIFLE DISH LOOKS DELICIOUS!
Maybe I should make this for Thanksgiving!
I had to make sure there was no leftovers for fear of gobbling it up.
I’m like legit drooling right now. Butterscotch anything is ammmmazing.
Butterscotch is the best, you would love this then it blends so well with the chocolate.
I love those little glasses you have those in! Cute. Confession: hate butterscotch. Sorry. ALTHOUGH, I love scotcheroos, which my mom makes and that involve butterscotch chips, so there’s that.
Thank you. Crate and Barrel for the win! Say what?? I think you could totally switch it out for a peanut butter or even caramel flavor.
omg it’s beautiful
Haha! Thank you.
Lindsay Templeton says
I think we are taste bud twins. I could eat butterscotch everything and/or chorrizzo all day!
Yes!! Really add caramel and peanut butter and I could live off those 4 flavors!
Heath is one of my favorite candies!! GET IN MY BELLAYYY!
Good to know. Now I shall tease you with all the heath bar desserts till you come visit! Bwahaha!
B @ The Sequin Notebook says
Ohhhhh my goodness, I loooove butterscotch – this sounds insanely delicious!
Thank you. Butterscotch is really one of my favorites!
Your recipes are always so good! Stop it!! (But don’t actually haha). I always thought that butterscotch and caramel were the same thing! I’m super curious to try butterscotch now that I know they aren’t!
Thank you. Such a great compliment. It is much creamier of a flavor, where caramel is sweeter and stickier. You should totally try it!
oh.my.heavens. not a big buttercsotch fan, but i’m pretty sure this would change my mind. scrumptious!
I think it would totally change your mind! It all melts together so well.
Leeann @ Join the Gossip says
If you can just package one of those up and ship it to me, that’d be great 😉
Haha! I can just imagine them oozing out of the box. Hehe. When you come and visit I will make you some goodies. 😉
Trifles are the best! My mom and I always make them whenever we want to a do an easy, pretty desert bar for a party. This one sounds amazing!
Thank you. They really are so so easy to make and so many different flavor combinations.
This looks so good – my boys love it when I make a trifle and I don’t mind making them because they are easy to make!
They really are so easy to make and really so many ways to make it to suit your tastes.
This looks delicious!!
Thank you. I was grateful to bring it to work otherwise I would have eaten it all.
