Food For Thought Tuesday-Chocolate Trifle

This recipe is one of my go-to dessert recipes when I am not sure what to make for a treat. It is so easy and it is ALWAYS a crowd pleaser.

This is my mom's recipe and it is so yummy and delicious!

1 chocolate cake mix--baked according to package directions
1 large box of chocolate pudding
1 jar of hot fudge
1 large tub of cool whip
2 cups half and half
1 cup milk

Directions. Bake cake according to package instructions. Let cool. In a mixing bowl, combine pudding with half and half and milk. Mix until thick.

When cake is cool, turn out onto board and cut into bite size chunks.

In a trifle bowl, start with your cake chunks and put a layer in the bottom of your bowl. Then put a layer of your pudding on the cake. Then drizzle your hot fudge over your pudding and then top with a layer of cool whip. Repeat layers.

I like to have my last layer to be cool whip and then I drizzle some hot fudge on top and some cake crumbs to finish it off.

Let set in fridge a couple hours before serving.

I've made chocolate trifles in the past too and add toffee bits to it. Yours sounds even more decadent with that hot fudge sauce in it. Yum. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog called "Sweets for a Saturday" and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your trifle up. http://sweet-as-sugar-cookies.blogspot.com
