For a fabulous finale when entertaining, this lovely layered chocolate trifle is a winner! It's a do-ahead dessert that serves a group, and it even tastes great the next day. —Pam Botine, Goldsboro, North Carolina

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 29, 2014

This recipe was in the first Taste of Home magazine I received many years ago. I still make it often. It is the most requested dessert at church dinners. I now use one bag of Heath bits instead of crushing the Heath bars.

First off I love trifles (know not everyone does) but this one is always a hit at family gatherings. I also like that you can make this the night ahead. Really rich and delicious!

Have made this recipe many times. Always a huge hit. I substitute brownies for the cake (cut into one inch squares). I also use chocolate chips as not everyone cares for the heath bars, and I omit the coffee. Also, side a little food coloring in the whipped cream for the holidays. I did pink for Easter. This is an extremely easy and delicious dessert. Enjoy!

Made this recipe for potluck and folks went back for seconds and thirds. And I just made a sugar free version for diabetic friends, using all sugar free ingredients. This is so simple and so yummy.

I used raspberry hot chocolate and mixed it in the pudding instead of coffee. I also used heavy whipping cream to make my own cool whip.
