Heavenly Chocolate Trifle

READY IN: 2hrs 30mins
Recipe by JacquelineRose

This is a very showy, as well as delicious dessert! Great for large gatherings!P.S. This dessert fills a punchbowl, trifle dishes are too small! I suggest a Punch bowl (most trifle bowls are too small)

This is a great recipe! I usually use brownies but the devil's food cake just makes it even richer. I located Heath candy topping in my local grocery store where the chocolate chips are sold and I added slivered almonds & French dragees to jazz it up for a soldier's Welcome Home party. I've already been asked to make this for a Halloween party.
