1. Prepare cake or brownies according to package directions. Bake and cool completely. Cut into 1 inch cubes.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk and pudding. Mix until mixture begins to thicken. Dissolve coffee granules in water and stir into pudding mixture. Fold in whipped topping.
3. In a glass serving bowl, layer one third of cake/brownie cubes, one third of pudding mixture and one third of candy. Repeat layering until all ingredients are used. Chill 30 minutes in refrigerator before serving.
This dessert is especially pretty made in a glass pedestal dish.
