Chocolate Skor Trifle

I had never made a trifle before, and of course when I think of trifle, I think of Rachel’s trifle. I am a huge Friends fanatic so I could hear Jennifer Aniston as Rachel in my head saying: “First, there’s a layer of ladyfingers, then a layer of jam, then custard—which, I made from scratch! Then raspberries, more ladyfingers, then beef sauteed with peas and onions, more custard, then bananas and then I just put some whipped cream on top!” Don’t worry, I didn’t make half an English trifle and half a shepherd’s pie! I made a delicious chocolate Skor trifle and it was so easy, you can make it too!

Chocolate Skor Trifle

You will need:

  • Trifle bowl
  • Box of chocolate cake mix
  • Large box of instant chocolate pudding
  • 1 package of Skor bits or 2 Skor bars crushed
  • 1 tub of Cool Whip

I have seen trifles made in glass bowls, but you’re going to want an actual trifle bowl so all the delicious layers are even! They come in different sizes and mine is a 9″ so if yours is smaller or bigger just adjust the ingredients accordingly.

Make your chocolate cake per box directions. I used two 9″ round cake pans so the cake edges in the trifle would look pretty, but you can cook in a 9×13 pan and just cut and break up pieces of your chocolate cake, no harm in doing that! Then make your chocolate pudding per directions on the box as well and you will layer as follows:

  • Chocolate cake
  • Chocolate pudding
  • Cool Whip
  • Skor bits

My trifle bowl fits 3 of each layer perfectly and I topped with Skor bits, you could substitute chocolate shavings if you prefer…or nothing at all! I had quite a bit of cake leftover, no chocolate pudding, a bit of Cool Whip and I bought my Skor bits at Bulk Barn and had extra, I sprinkled generously on my layers too.

  2. Make your chocolate pudding per directions on the box as well.
Layer trifle as follows:

This is even better when it sits in the refrigerator overnight and it’s nice that you can make this ahead and not worry about dessert!
