Excellent! I made this for my daughter's Preschool Christmas/Teacher Appreciation luncheon, with one *small* change ---- no Kahlua! No alcohol allowed in the school. Instead, I used caramel ice cream topping on the cake - it was wonderful! I chopped up 3 Nutrageous candy bars and put them between layers (just 2 layers) and on top, along with some Christmas spinkles. It was a hit. It does make a lot -- try it - you'll love it!
It was only bc of the rave reviews that I decided to try this. Although the flavors did seem to blend together better the next day, I was not that impressed with the results. If I would make this again, I would use chocolate mousse. The instant chocolate pudding just didn't have enough of chocolate umph for me.
YUM!!! This trifle was beautiful and delicious. I made as is except for adding toffee bits around the edge of each cool whipped layer. I really like the addition of the toffee bits so might add more next time. Thanks for the recipe! :)
Holy Moly!! This was a gorgeous and delicious dessert. I had my daughters and their families home for the weekend. I always try to make something special for dessert and I outdid myself with the help of your recipe. The kahlua intensifies the chocolate flavor and makes it pop. I put it together in a footed trifle bowl which made a stunning presentation. Thanks Karen, for posting this excellent recipe.
This needs to be made with fresh whipped cream .....not Cool Whip! Too many chemicals in that stuff and the taste is no where near what you achieve with fresh whipped cream. That was my substitution and the dessert was very tasty!
This is a great (and easy) trifle. Have always made English trifles because that was what I was brought up with. Have made some changes to this one over the years by substituting white chocolate instant pudding (still use Kahlua) and Skor toffee bits. Thanks for submitting this wonderful company recipe.
Have made this many times with the addition of chopped up Heath bars. Awesome!
So Amazing! Everyone loved it, plus it looked so pretty with chocolate sprinkles on top! A definite keeper. I thought 1 cup of kahlua sounded like a lot but it was really just right! THANKS!
This was awesome! I love the way the Kahlua soaked down to the bottom of the cake. I used a chocolate pudding and a cheesecake flavored pudding and alternated them with the cake and cool whip and added toffee bits on top. It was delicious and very pretty in the bowl! Thank you for a great recipe!!
WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!Made it for Christmas and Valentines - quick and easy. We used a whole 500g tub Cool Whip - preference as deserts only made in our home on special occasions. It will be hard to experiment with other desert recipes for those special days, and as a general rule, recipes are only made once just because there are so many waiting to be tried!! Thank You
