Inside: A delicious and easy to make Halloween trifle made with HERSHEY® Halloween candy, chocolate brownies, pudding, and whipped topping.
Have you been to Walmart yet this Halloween season? Their Halloween department is massive and packed with a large selection of everything from Halloween candy to costumes and decorations.
On my last Walmart trip I stocked up on all our favorite HERSHEY® Halloween candy along with some fun, new Halloween decorations.
I stocked up on REESE’S Peanut Butter Cups, KIT KAT® Bars, and HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate for Halloween AND I had plenty of HERSHEY® candy to make this delicious Halloween candy trifle.
When it comes to Halloween candy desserts, this rich brownie trifle is a family favorite and always a hit at Halloween parties. Everyone in our family looks forward to me making this festive HERSHEY® candy trifle each year when Halloween rolls around. And it is so easy to make!
