Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup liqueur, divided (Kahlua or Frangelico, Amaretto, Goldschlager, whatever you prefer)
  • 12 ounces Cool Whip, defrosted
  • 1 chocolate toffee candy bar, shattered (Skor)


  1. Assemble in a 2-quart bowl:.
  2. Make the pudding as directed and add half of the liqueur before it sets, mixing well.
  3. Put half of the cake cubes in the bottom of the bowl then pour half of the rest of the liqueur over the cake.
  4. Spread half of the pudding over the cake then spread half of the Cool Whip over the pudding.
  5. Repeat layers then break the Skor bar up and sprinkle pieces over the top.

This is just delicious! I made exactly as posted, using kahlua. I did half the recipe. My pudding was a bit thin, but with the cake it all worked. Would love to post a photo, but we are having horrible weather here right now....rain, tornadoes....very unnatural for December here!

I'm not going to give this recipe a rating because I don't think I made it the correct way. I think I misunderstood step 2. I thought it meant to add the liqueur to the pudding before it sets. However, after I did this already, I then read step three (my fault - should have read the directions over entirely) and it seems the liqueur should be poured over the cake cubes and not added to the pudding itself?? Anyway, I did add it to the pudding mixture itself so I don't think mine turned out right. Either way, it still was tasty, but I'll have to try it again before I give it a star rating.
