3 words: or.gas.mic!!! I love the honey vanilla stuff, and the apples were yummy! Could have used more apples, though. ANd I prefer homemade pound cake! Folks were begging for the recipe!

My niece says this is the best dessert I have ever made! I lightened it up with some substitutions- angel food cake instead of pound cake and I used light cream cheese. Delicious!!

WOW! This trifle is so delicious with flavors of apple and toffee. I don´t think I used all 2 loaves of poundcake, not sure what size they where ment to be, but you don´t need a lot, I think. Apples then again, I used 8, since they where not that big and no regrets, they added wonderfull freshness between the layers. I did not use cream to make the vanilla pudding, but milk. It was plenty rich and creamy though. I might add a thin layer of whipped cream on top next time, though. I used 6 oz bag of toffee and our mouths where just melting. Yummmmm... Truly memorable!

This was good, but a little too sweet and heavy for me. Still, it was an easy party dessert. Maybe I'll add a layer of whipped cream next time.

A wonderful dessert! I made this for a recent gathering of my church women's circle and everyone yummed their way through large portions. I used Granny Smith apples, and I didn't do any processing of the Heath bits. Had a bit of pound cake and some cream left over, but BF was more than happy to eat that up. He was also happy to receive the small portion leftover after the meeting. The only thing I think I would do differently would be to use a few more apple slices in the future, or maybe use larger apples to begin with. Grat creation Mirj!

I made this yummy dessert to take to our family Easter dinner. I used store-bought Sara Lee plain pound cake and I didn't process the Skor bits. It made a huge bowl full - 5 of us didn't even eat half of it. The only downfall is that this recipe is quite expensive to make if you have to buy the pound cake. Everyone loved this!

OMgosh! Words cannot describe how scrumptious this trifle is. I made it for a work potluck and five...count 'em...five people asked me for the recipe. They couldn't stop eating it! I liked the cream cheese/whipped cream/honey filling so much that I kept swiping spoonfuls of it until DH made me stop...cuz he wanted some too! Will I make this trifle again? In a heartbeat. And, it was so easy to make. A winner, for sure!

Heavenly! I love to make trifles and this recipe has to be one of the easiest to whip up, it's now one of my favorites to eat. The store was out of plain pound cake so I used spice pound cake instead, which went well with the apples (Granny Smith). I also doubled the recipe to make two trifles and sauteed the apples in 2 batches using a total of 3/4 cup of butter. I bought 2 bags of Heath Toffee chips and ground them up more in the food processor; I have quite a bit leftover and probably could've just used 1 bag alone for the two desserts. I topped of the dessert with some pecan halves. Everything fit perfectly into each standard trifle bowl: no leftover apples, cream or cake cubes. This was a real hit with our Thanksgiving dinner guests. Thanks Mirj, for inventing this recipe!

It doesn't get any better than this! I cannot rave enough about this, it was so delicious. This is definitely one for 10 stars. My trifle bowl is on the smallish side so I used a bit less than 1 pound cake. However, it does need all 6 apples. The pudding mix is 3.4 oz box (4 servings, 1/2 C each), the apples were MacIntosh and I used regular toffee bits (last bag in the store). This is definitely a dessert for a group or one will end up eating the whole thing alone. Thanks for making me a star at lunch!
