Crowd-Pleasing Brownie Decadent Dessert

Warning...Not a Low Anything Dessert

I say crowd-pleasing; well this dessert definitely pleased the two crowds that I have served it to.
  I even got a proposal of marriage because of it at my daughter's baby shower, which everyone found funny.  But that is how yummy and decadent this is.  Don't think you need a special occasion to make this but it is rather large...there is a lot of it so it definitely suits a crowd.
This recipe has been floating around the web for a while; Pinterest has any number of variations of it. 

Here is how I made it...

1 box brownie mix, made and baked as per box directions. This makes the first layer.
1 block cream cheese whipped with 1 cup of icing sugar, then one container of Cool Whip blended into the cream cheese mixture.  This is the second layer.
1 package of chocolate pudding mix (I used Jello) mixed as per package directions. This is the third layer.
I spread half a jar of caramel sauce over this.
I beat 1 cup of whipping cream into peaks, then mixed another container of Cool Whip into the cream. This is the fourth layer.
Finally, I crushed 4 Hersheys Milk Chocolate with Almonds bars  and sprinkled on the top.

I can't wait to make this again. I don't indulge in sweets often and the occasional serving of dessert like this is a real treat.  Perhaps for Hubby's birthday get-together...surely he will lift his dessert ban for that.
