This is my favorite cake of all time! It's a dream to create AND eat because it's so easy and delicious. With a few simple ingredients and a short amount of time, you could be enjoying this Chocolate Dream Trifle dessert this afternoon and celebrating the end of the day.
In our house, birthday season starts at the end of July and goes until February. It seems there's always a reason to celebrate and have cake. By the end of the season, we can get a little tired of traditional cakes. So when my birthday comes around at the start of the year, I always ask for this Chocolate Dream Trifle as my cake of choice.
It's full of chocolate, chocolate, and even more deliciousness. It's the perfect treat when you are looking for a little bit of creamy yumminess to start the weekend with. And in true Kandy Kreations' style, its super easy to make.
After all, I'm not much into waiting, especially when it comes to desserts and treats. I want to enjoy each moment of life with as much sweetness as possible. Because who has time to wait?
To make this dream dessert, you'll need:
- One box Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix (plus needed ingredients)
- 1 large container of Whipped Topping
- 2 family size boxes of Chocolate Instant pudding (plus needed milk)
- 1 container Cookies n' Cream Hershey Mixers (available in the ice cream topping aisle)
Use the cake box directions to make 2 round cake mixes. The size depends upon the bowl that you want to create your trifle in. I used this Trifle Bowl and so needed two 8 inch cake rounds.
Bake according to directions and let cool.
While your cake is cooling, make up both boxes of chocolate instant pudding and refrigerate.
When everything is ready and cool, start by layering one of the chocolate cakes into the bottom of your bowl. Then add half the pudding on top. Smooth out the layer and add half the cool whip on top of that. Then repeat until you've used all the cake, pudding, and whipped topping to create your trifle dessert.
Add the package of Cookies and Cream Hershey Mixers dessert topping on top of your Chocolate Dream Trifle Dessert. This gives the cake a little bit of crunch and texture so it's not all creamy dreaminess and instead has some Wow!
Refrigerate your cake until your ready to enjoy. Cover and refrigerate any left overs.
