Over the weekend, my husband and I were going to have a neighborhood dessert party. It ended up getting cancelled last minute, but since I had the ingredients to make this, I decided to stick with plan and try it out. Up until a few months ago, I had never made a trifle before. I was introduced into the “trifle making” world because of a recipe submitted in our contest. Lets just say….I LOVE trifles!! Nothing is more fun then perfecting the “look” of them, eating them, all the yummy layers involved, and adding new variety to each one!! This one was a hit and thoroughly satisfied my love of chocolate and s’mores!!
1 box Devils food cake
1 large box chocolate pudding
1 Hershey chocolate bar
2 cups crushed graham cracker crumbs
1 container Cool Whip (16 oz)
Prepare Devils food cake mix and bake as directed on box. Allow cake to cool completely. Prepare chocolate pudding mix as directed on box. Crumble cake into small pieces. In a trifle bowl, place half of cake crumbles in bottom of dish. Next, layer half of the chocolate pudding on top of cake. Follow it up by topping with half the cool whip container and then 1 cup Graham crackers crumbs. Continue pattern one more time ending with last layer of Graham crackers crumbs. On the very top, crumble Hershey chocolate bar over cracker layer. *I used a food processor to break it into small chunks.
Keep trifle chilled, serve in bowls!!
(If using a spoon for each layer, be sure to rinse it off each time as to not mix layers together)
