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!
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 warning...it's hard to push away the plate! Enjoy!
