Chocolate Triffle.....It's To Die For!

I made this yummy dessert to take to dinner at my neighbors last Sunday. My neighbor Mary and her husband Gustavo live directly across the alley from me and at least once or twice a year we try to have dinner together. I also brought a bottle of wine and a plateful of sliced garden fresh tomatoes and cucumber slices.

Needless to say the bottle of wine was gone at dinner and we started on another. Thankfully it's not a far walk home! LOL! Only kidding! The food was delicious, the company good and the weather perfect.

Ok so back to the recipe for this dessert...It's easey-peasey!

Chocolate Triffle

1 boxed devils food cake mix
1 large package chocolate pudding mix
1 12oz container of cool whip
1 bag of bite size heath bars

Bake the devils food cake according to box directions. Let cool completely. When cool cut into chunks. Mix the chocolate pudding mix according to package directions. Thaw out to room tempature the cool whip. Unpackage the heath bars and place in a large ziploc bag. Take a rolling pin and smash into smaller bits the heath bars. Now comes the fun part. Layer the cake, then add a layer of chocolate pudding, then a layer of coolwhip, then a sprinkled layer of crushed heath bars into a triffle bowl. Repeat the process ending with the heath bars on the top.

If you don't like heath bars, you can substitute nestle crunch bars or something similar.

Cover with saran wrap and chill....presentation is so important with this dessert and it's definitely a WOW! when your dinner guests see it for the first time. And just a's hard to push away the plate! Enjoy!


  1. yummo!!!! I will have to make this for some up coming partys i am having...this looks tasty..gotta get a nice bowl to put it in.;)thanks for sharing;)

  2. Gina,

    It is super yummy especially if you are a chocolate lover. Yep, a nice bowl is a must. Kohls had some Food Network triffle bowls on sale there this week. Only noticed as I was in their kitchen section looking for another bowl for my kitchen aid stand mixer.


  3. Love this recipe. I used Skore Bars which can be hard to find now...didn't think of heath bars.

    Looks beautiful!

  4. Pat,

    Never thought of using Skore bars. Making it with the Nestles crunch bars is kinda neat too.


  5. Looks yummy! I am going to have to try it.

  6. Doris,

    It is! LOL! But shhhh...I won't tell if you don't! LOL!


  7. Oh my! This looks so delish! Gonna have to try this when we have a get-together...although I might just want to keep it all to myself! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  8. Beautiful! I would say it's so pretty that I wouldn't want to mess it up but it's chocolate... no matter how pretty it is, chocolate has to be eaten! =] YUM!

    I have one of those bowls on my wish list from Pampered Chef. But I noticed that lots of places carry them now, even Walmart. They are wonderful for pretty desserts!
