“S’more, Please” Trifle

“This recipe is a little indulgent, but we all need that occasionally. Don’t worry about having it for more than one day, there won’t be leftovers of this!” Lori Ann Panchisin — Holly Hill, Florida
  • Total Time
    Prep: 55 min. + chilling
  • Makes
    16 servings


  • 1 package chocolate cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 can (12 ounces) diet lemon-lime soda
  • 2-1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons fat-free milk, divided
  • 2 packages (1.4 ounces each) sugar-free instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 carton (8 ounces) frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 10 whole reduced-fat graham crackers, divided
  • 1 jar (7 ounces) marshmallow creme
  • Grated chocolate, optional


  • In a large bowl, combine cake mix and soda; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Pour into a 13x9-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk 2-1/2 cups milk and pudding mix for 2 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes or until soft-set. Fold in whipped topping; set aside. In a microwave, melt chocolate chips and remaining milk; stir until smooth. Coarsely crush five crackers; set aside. Cut cake into 1-in. cubes.
  • In a 3-qt. trifle bowl or glass bowl, layer half of the cake cubes, pudding, crushed crackers, chocolate mixture and marshmallow creme. Repeat layers. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Just before serving, coarsely crush remaining crackers; sprinkle over the top. Garnish with grated chocolate if desired.

    I was looking for a dessert recipe for a large family gathering, this certainly did the trick. From my 9 year old great-nephew to my 73 year old brother the reviews were "2 thumbs up"! What little leftovers we had my husband took care of later that evening.

    I would like to see a picture of what this recipe looks like. Was it in a back issue of Taste of Home?
