    Prepare brownie mix according to package directions and cool completely. Cut into 1 inch squares.

    In a trifle bowl or glass serving dish, place half of the brownies, half of the pudding mixture and half of the 12 ounce container of whipped topping. Repeat layers. Shave chocolate onto top layer for garnish.

Add a couple of drops of peppermint candy flavoring to the 12 oz whipped topping. Stir and taste. Add more if a stronger peppermint flavor is desired. Crush candy canes (about 10) and layer 1/2 on top of each whipped topping layer and omit shaved chocolate garnish.
