Chocolate Trifle

Serves: 9
Total Calories: 404


1 (18 1/2-ounce) box chocolate fudge cake mix
1 (6-ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1/2 cup strong coffee
1 (12-ounce) carton frozen whipped topping, thawed
6 (1.4-ounce) chocolate-covered toffee candy bars, crushed


Bake cake according to package directions. Cool. Prepare pudding according to package directions and set aside. Crumble cake, reserving 1/2 cup. Place half the remaining cake crumbs in the bottom of a 4 1/2- or 5-quart trifle bowl. Layer with half the coffee, half the pudding, half the whipped topping and half the crushed candy bars. Repeat the layers of cake, coffee, pudding and whipped topping. Combine remaining cake crumbs and crushed candy bars. Sprinkle over top and refrigerate 4–5 hours before serving.

Editor's Extra: Frozen whipped topping can be thawed in the microwave, but do it gradually. Try an 8-ounce container at 30% power for 1 minute, and large containers at additional 15-second intervals till there is still a frozen ball in the center, but able to be stirred soft. This takes watching, so do it gradually or you’ll end up with sweet soup.
