My mom used to make this and it's absolutely wonderful. She adds layers of crushed Heath Bars and it adds a nice contrast of texture and flavor!!!
Anyone that knows me knows that I don't drink but when it comes to cooking....well.... I loved this! It was simple to prepare and,I think,turned out very pretty. I cubed the cakes so that they would fit into my trifle dish. I also tinted the Cool Whip in Fall orange that Aunt Paula sent to me. I can't wait to make this again to take to a party! Thanks so much for posting!! :)
This is a very good cake! It really looks festive when you put it in a glass bowl. I used a Swiss Chocolate cake mix because this is what I had in the cabinet and borrowed some kahlua from the neighbors! I carried them half of the cake and needless to say they were glad to reap the benefits of giving me the kahlua! They have offered me their kahlua any time I want to make this cake! Thanks Aunt Paula! Pick a Chef 2004!!!
