I mean, how can this be bad, right? Brought to a picnic and not a bite left. People fought over who got to lick the caramel out of the sides/bottom!

This is a definite keeper! Made this trifle for Christmas Eve, and it was a hit. Not only pretty, but delicious. The only substitution I made was using brownies in place of the chocolate cake. Everyone devoured it! Try it!!

Had at a dinner group and went over well. Better have a REALLY deep bowl - or trifle bowl. It will be very full!

I made this for a Manager's meeting at work and everyone loved it. I came home with an empty trifle bowl. Thanks for the awesome recipe. ( :

My family loves this trifle, I have to make it every Mother's Day or Father's Day. Instead of making brownies I buy the Two Bite Brownies from the grocery store and i don't use dessert topping I use real whipped cream. Everybody always has seconds the bowl is always empty!
