Today's Round Up: Dessert

Happy Thanksgiving!! Hopefully you are enjoying the weeks festivities with family and/or friends! I have had a few requests for this dessert since I posted a picture of it a few days ago. This trifle is one of Markus' favorite desserts to eat. It is easy and delicious and a perfect treat for a special day, holiday gathering or just because. The possibilities of how you layer and what you layer with are endless I suppose, but the following recipe is our favorite way to enjoy this chocolately, deliciously delightful dessert!

Nini's Chocolate Kahlua Trifle

* 1 box dark chocolate cake
* 1 large box Jello Instant Chocolate Fudge pudding
* 2 1/2 Cups cold milk
* 1/2 Cup Kahlua
* 1 container Cool Whip (soften in fridge for a few hours)
* 4 Skor bars (or favorite toffee bar), broken into small pieces


Prepare cake as directed and bake in a 9 x 13 pan. You will be cutting the cake in order to make layers (you may have a bit left over.) Meanwhile, prepare pudding by combining cold milk and Kahlua in medium bowl and whisk pudding in for 2 minutes. Refrigerate while cake bakes.

Once cake is cooled you can begin layering. In a large bowl, or trifle bowl, cover bottom with cake. Next, cover cake with an even layer of pudding. Then spread an even layer of cool whip over pudding and top with some of the crunched up Skor bars. Place another layer of cake, pudding, cool whip and Skor bars for one or two more layers. I usually get three full layers. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!

You make your pudding with the Kahlua, eh? I always just pour some onto the cake layers. I never thought of actually mixing it into the pudding. That's brilliant.

Sometimes I put bananas into this. I love it. Some youngins don't love it so much...
