I enjoy making trifles because they are so quick and easy to put together. I made a pumpkin pudding by simply using vanilla pudding and mixing in some canned pumpkin. Then I layered the pudding and brownies, and topped it off with whipped cream and candy. It is a rich dessert, but perfect for a special occasion!
