This recipe comes from Family Circle magazine. I made it for a church homecoming dinner and everyone really liked it. It is great for those caramel and chocolate lovers!

oh man was this good. one thing it does need maybe more than an hour so that the flavors can meld a little bit. i couldnt wait so i dived in early it was good but i could tell it needed more time. the snickers gave it a little bit of texture which was nice but i think that i will melt them in the microwave a littel first next time to allow them to spread a little and let the chocolate meld with the pudding a little. good trifle thanks
