Click below to listen to Chefs Jackie and Jeff talk about these recipes and tips:

The first recipe for Trifle was from a cookbook published in 1596 in England. Recipes vary greatly, but its essentially a layered desert, usually in a clear glass container, sometimes atop a pedestal. Alternate layers of cake (sometimes soaked in a flavored alcohol), custard, gelatin and whipped cream are typical. Use your imagination to come up with your own creations, but use the one below for fast, delicious results.

1 box chocolate cake mix
1 cup coffee flavored liquor
2 small cartons whipping cream
2 boxes (small size) instant chocolate pudding
3 1/2 cups milk
6 chocolate covered toffee candy bars, crushed


Make cake according to package instructions. After cooling, poke holes in cake and pour Kahlua over it. Refrigerate overnight. When ready to assemble trifle, whip cream. Add milk to pudding and beat according to package instructions. Cut cake into cubes. Layer in a clear glass serving bowl, 1/3 of cake, pudding , whipped cream, crushed candy bars. Repeat layering 2 additional times ending with whipped cream and crushed candy bars. This will serve 16 to 20 and you will enjoy this all year long.

  1. Your chocolate trifle recipe sounds so sumptuous! Your kids surely loved it! Just make sure you remind them to brush their teeth well so they won't get cavities. Or at least make them visit the Buckhead dental clinic at least twice a year.

  2. I should definitely make one of these before I go to my Rockford Il dentist for dental treatment. I'll be having dental implants soon.
