I love this recipe. Used Brownie mix (intead of choc. cake) and 2 pkgs of choc mousse. This was so darn delicious! Women were fighting over the last piece! (Pleaaase!)

Excellent recipe! I made this for work last week, and practically got trampled at the door as soon as everyone found out what it was. I didn't have reg. chocolate cake mix, so I used Devil's food instead. I also made my own sweetened whipped cream, because I didn't have time to wait for a tub of Cool Whip to thaw out. Oh, and I had Tia Maria instead of Kahlua. Close enough, I thought. Great, great, great, and easy to make as well.

This triffle was very good. I made my own brownies from scratch (adding chocolate chips to the batter is a nice touch), but I found that I didn't need nearly an entire 9x13 pan; a 9" square pan would have made plenty. I used two boxes of the Nestle European-style mousse, 1 dark chocolate and 1 mocha. Finally I purchased 3 "king-size" Heath bars but did not use them all; another candy or just chocolate chips could be substituted. Overall, very good, simple, and easy to make variations.

An party favorite. This was the hit of the day at our Memorial Day family BBQ! Easy to make and a dream to eat. I used two of the larger size instant pudding boxes and there was more than enough pudding. The next time I make this I think I will pipe in the pudding and the whipped cream to make for a better presentation.

I stumbled upon this while browsing the site. This is one of my all time favorite desserts to make. Got it from a Christmas/Holiday cookbook in a box of Kahlua about 19 years ago. I've been making it ever since then. We don't add the Kahlua anymore and instead of cake we always use brownies. It's always been a hit and my son has been making it for the last 7 years!

I had some chocolate sponge cake I needed to use and I found this recipe to spruce up the cake. I used chocolate syrup instead of Kahlua and it was rich, chocolaty and delicious. My first trifle and it was super easy. Thanks for the recipe.

I made this last night as a dessert for my anniversary dinner. Don't know what I was thinking, because it's huge, haha!! Going to bring some over to my mom's today. But man, was it fantastic!! So easy and delicious. I tried to make it slightly healthier by making a chocolate cake with applesauce like I usually do, and using skim milk in my pudding. I also used a bag of chocolate heath sprinkles. Oh man...it was just so delicious, I can't wait to have it again tonight and now I have a fantastic dessert to bring to parties. Thanks so much!!

I have made this many times, and it is a delicious dessert! I make regular pudding as I like the texture and taste better than the instant pudding. I use a Chocolate Devils Food cake or Wacky cake for my cake, along with the Skor bars... Sometimes I add walnuts to it too and sprinkle some on top as well... One of my FAVS! It's just as good without the Kahlua as it is with...

Pretty decent dessert, but everyone could only eat a tiny piece of it. Good in very small doses else it kinda gets to you.
