My friend Barb from Soroptimist shared a Chocolate Trifle recipe that is easy and will wow your guests. I haven’t included the nutritional information. This is a decadent treat. Enough said!
Barb’s tip: a punchbowl works well for the whole recipe.
I do believe Laurie, Steve’s sister and master baker, made something remarkably similar for Hockey Day in Canada, except that she used Skor bits and put it in a trifle bowl. She called it Sex in a Pan, which Steve thought was very amusing and extremely delicious.
Update from Laurie: This sounds good actually. It’s not quite the same thing, but it’s a similar idea. The recipe (such as it is) from a friend of mine calls for complete layers of cake. Normally, I don’t do so many layers, but the one for Saturday worked well in the trifle bowl. If you wanted to add kahlua to the one I do then just add it to the cake mix when you bake it. All mine entails is:
- one chocolate cake mix (your choice)
- one package chocolate instant pudding
- one tub of cool whip
- skor bits for the top
