I love trifles to make for special occasions. This one did not disappoint as it's so deliciously moist and yummy. I actually took this recipe and divided into two dessert bowls. One for DH for Valentines and another for DS and girlfriend. I decided to up the pudding amount and so folded into the CoolWhip a pkg. of sugarfree instant white chocolate that I made along with the devils food instant chocolate in order to get just a bit more pudding mixture for both bowls. Perfect. Thanks for a great recipe and one I'll be making again. Made for 123Hits.~

I used sugar free chocolate pudding and cool whip because that's what I had on hand. I took it to bunco for dessert. The ladies all seemed to enjoy it. I loved that it was quick and easy to put together, as I am always in a rush to whip something up after work. This recipe saved the day! Thank you!

Wonderful! I used 2 small boxes of chocolate pudding, butter recipe chocolate cake, and lite cool whip. the only issue I had was getting it all to fit in my trifle bowl. I had some cake left over. Brought it to dinner at a friends house and everyone loved it. I loved that it was quick, easy, cheap, and looked impressive. I love to use my trifle bowl to make ordinary occassions a little special. Thanks for posting!
