Ready In:




  • Prepare cake according to the box.
  • Set aside to cool.
  • Cut the cake up into cubes.
  • Combine pudding mix, milk and Kahlua.
  • If it is too runny, set it aside in the fridge to allow it to thicken for 20 minutes.
  • It will make it easier to work with.
  • To assemble, use a pretty straight-sided glass bowl or trifle bowl.
  • Layer the bottom with 1/2 the cake cubes making sure to line the sides of the bowl.
  • I usually like to cut a few rectangular pieces to line the side with and then fill the inside with the cubes.
  • Pour 1/2 the the pudding over the the cake layer making sure to spread it to the side of the bowl so you can see the layer.
  • Spread 1/2 the Cool Whip on top of the pudding mix in the same manner.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 the Skors bits on top of the Cool Whip.
  • Repeat the layering with the rest of the ingredients ending with the Skors bits on top.
  • Chill overnight before serving.

  1. I have been making this trifle for years and have always received rave reviews. I usually make a from scratch dark chocolate cake and the cooked rather than instant pudding but have used the boxed and instant when I needed a quick dessert and either way it was a hit.
  2. You want to talk about good? This is chocolatly, and so awesome I can't even tell you. I used a Wacky Cake recipe for the chocolate cake. I made regular pudding, as I don't care for the instant. I used Cool Whip, as I like how it holds up in the heat. I sprinkled with crushed walnuts on top and sprinkled them between the layers too along with the Skor bars. I used a huge punch bowl and doubled the recipe to make for my DD's college graduation party. It was a BIG HIT! This is one recipe just about EVERYONE LOVES! Next time I might try using cut up Butterfinger or Snickers candy in place of the Skor bars to change it up a bit. Thanks for sharing this one with us!
