Carrabba's Italian Grill Sogno Di Cioccolata aka Chocolate Dream Remake

So my family came to town awhile back and we went to Carrabba's Italian Grill for dinner. For dessert we ordered a delectably chocolatey treat appropriately called the chocolate dream. I loved it so much that I was determined to find the recipe in order to recreate it at home. I scoured the internet and found a few recipes and decided to tweak them in order to create my own version. If you're interested in trying this then here's what you'll need.


Fudge brownie mix

2 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup Kahlua
2 cups prepared chocolate mousse( I used Jello Chocolate Mousse Mix)
2 cups whipped cream
1 ounce semisweet chocolate shavings


Prepare brownie mix according to box instructions, using the two egg-recipe and substituting milk for the water.

Line two 9-inch square baking pans with either parchment paper or wax paper. Spray bottoms with non-stick cooking spray. Pour equal amounts of batter into each pan.

Bake - either in a convection oven at 325 degrees F for 20 minutes, or in a standard oven for about 24-26 minutes.

Bake until a wooden pick inserted in the middle of the brownie comes out clean.

IMPORTANT: Do not overbake!

Allow to cool completely.

Set one brownie pan aside; invert other pan and remove brownie in one piece; return to pan upside down; remove parchment paper.

Brush the brownie evenly with ½ of the Kahlua; then top with ½ of the mousse, spreading it evenly over the brownie.

Spread ½ of the whipped cream over the mousse.

Remove second brownie from pan; brush with remaining Kahlua; place it on top of other brownie; spread remaining mousse evenly over the top; spread remaining whipped cream over the mousse.

Sprinkle top evenly with chocolate shavings.

 Refrigerate until ready to serve.

My version doesn't look quite the same but it tastes very similar to the original. I'll definitely be trying this recipe again until I get it to be 100% match taste wise and in looks.

Happy Holidays =)
