Fox 19 and Chocolate Trifles

I am definitely new to posting recipes.  Honestly, the way I cook (and bake) is like this: find some recipes, read those recipes, adapt it to what works for me, and make a big mess in the kitchen!  Very rarely do I invent a recipe; I am not that brilliant.  But I do love food; I love playing around with different ingredients! Today I got to spend my Saturday morning doing just that on Fox 19 with Jessica Brown.  This time, I put her to work as well.

If you’re interested in the recipe (of sorts), here it is:


Chocolate cake or brownies

Chocolate pudding (I used a big box of instant pudding) (you could also do vanilla or butterscotch)

Cool Whip

Candy Bars (I used leftover Halloween candy: Twix, Hershey, Whoppers, Reese Cups, M&Ms)

Caramel Sauce (or hot fudge)


Using either a trifle bowl or individual glass cups, layer the following: chocolate cake, pudding, whipped topping, caramel sauce, candy.  Then, do it again for a second layer!  I suggest cutting the cake in small pieces to make arranging them easier; I cut mine along the way to fill in gaps and corners.  Be sure to add a thick layer of candy in the middle so it shows from outside the glass.  Keep it in the refrigerator until serving.

I took this sinful yet simple dish to a gathering and it was demolished in ten minutes!  I’d say that’s a winner.  Plus, all the leftover candy is now out of my house!  Whew!  This chocoholic  cannot be trusted with those bad boys around the house!
