Extreme Brownies Supreme (with Lighter Options)

I first tasted these awesome 'dolled up' brownies at a friend's baby shower. 

A layer of cream cheese/powdered sugar, then instant pudding and whipped topping, topped with candy bars over a brownie base.  

WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE???

I've always used a low fat brownie mix, light cream cheese, sugar free pudding and lite whipped topping. The sugar free peanut butter cups are great too. 

This recipe is in my cookbook.  The comments I added were...
"This recipe is sure to bring OOOOOHHH's and AAAHHH's". 

A great dessert anytime, especially if you want folks begging for your recipe. 




EXTREME BROWNIES SUPREME 

1 (18 ozs) box (lowfat) brownies - 9" X 13" size
1 (8 ozs) pkg. (lite) cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 (3 ozs) box (sugar free) instant chocolate pudding mix 
1 c. (1%) milk
1 c. frozen (light) whipped topping, thawed
2 Snickers candy bars, chopped 
(or sugar free peanut butter cups)
chopped peanuts, optional 

Mix and bake brownies according to directions on box.  Cool completely.  In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth.  Spread over brownies.  Combine pudding mix with milk; stir in whipped topping and spread over cream cheese mixture.  Sprinkle candy bars and nuts over top and refrigerate until ready to serve.  May drizzle caramel ice cream topping over top when serving.
