But first...(you are going to love me for showing this to you)
Here is one of our family's favorite. We usually make it for a dessert on Thanksgiving or Christmas. It's always a hit, it's easy as pie (pun intended), and it's extremely bad for you. What more could you want?
My Mama's Chocolate Trifle
1 pckg of chocolate fudge cake mix
1 pkg. (6 oz) instant chocolate pudding mix
1/2 cup of strong coffee
1 carton (12 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed
6 heath bars (1.4 oz each) crushed
Directions: Bake cake according to package directions. Cool. Prepare pudding according to package directions; set aside. Crumble cake; reserve 1/2 cup. Place half of the remaining cake crumbs in the bottom of a 4-1/2 or 5 qt trifle dish or decorative glass bowl (duh, we use the decorative glass bowl!). Layer with half coffee, half of the pudding, half of the whipped topping and half of the crushed candy bars. Repeat the layers and combine remaining crushed candy bars with reserved cake crumbs; sprinkle over top. Refrigerate 4-5 hours before serving.
Yup.... I know. Sounds delicious especially if you're craving some chocolate. Enjoy!!
