BROWNIE TRIFLE

The beauty of this dessert is that you can easily customize it to your preferences. If you like peanut butter cups, throw some in there. If you like toffee, go for it! Wanna add some Baileys to the pudding and/or the whipped cream? I say do it! Whatever makes sense to make this the best dessert you have ever created.
