Ingredients

For the White Chocolate Whipped Ganache:

  • 3/4 Cup Heavy whipping cream
  • 12 oz White chocolate chopped

For the Whipped Cream:

  • 1 Cup Whipping cream
  • 1 Tbsp Powdered sugar

For the Layers:

  • 60 oz pumpkin pie filling
  • 4 Cups Crushed Toffee Crunch Brownie Brittle

Instructions

Make the Ganache:

  • In a medium sauce pan on medium heat, pour in 3/4 cup of the whipping cream and heat until it just about boils. Remove the pot from the heat, add in the chopped white chocolate and let the chocolate stand in the cream for 30 seconds. Once 30 seconds is up, whisk the chocolate into the cream vigorously until it is smooth and melted.
  • Cover the ganache with saran wrap and place it into the refrigerator until is it cool and the consistency of pudding, about 30 mins -1 hour. Make sure you don't chill it too long, as you don't want the ganache to become solid.
  • Transfer the cooled ganache to a large bowl. Whip it on high speed with an electric mixer until light in color, fluffy and it turns into the consistency of frosting, which takes about 2 minutes. Set aside.

Make the Whipped Cream:

  • Using a hand mixer, whip the 1 cup of whipping cream in a large bowl on high speed until stiff peaks just about form. Add in the powdered sugar and beat a few more seconds until light and fluffy. Make sure you don't over-whip, or your whipped cream will turn into butter!

Assembly:

  • Pour one of the cans of pumpkin pie filling into atrifle bowland spread out evenly.
  • Then, gently spoon all of the whipped ganache over the pumpkin and gently spread out evenly.
  • Sprinkle 3 cups of the crushed Brownie Brittle over top of the chocolate layer.
  • Pour the remaining can of pumpkin over top of the Brownie Brittle, and smooth out evenly.
  • Gently spread the whipped cream over top of the pumpkin and then top with remaining Brownie Brittle crumbs.
  • Serve immediately.
