Brooke's Chocolate Triffle

Posted by  ·  May 29, 2009  ·  Last Updated: May 29, 2009

Yesterday my friend, Brooke, made the most delicious triffle! It is not only stunning but so simple.


Just a few ingredients:

1 Cake Mix

1 large box chocolate pudding (plus 2 cups milk,divided)

2 containers of  frozen whipped topping (thawed)

6 Heath candy bars, crushed


Bake cake according to package directions, cool and cut into squares.


Layer chocolate cake, pudding (1/2 of the box mixed with 1 cup milk, allowing to thicken slightly so it can still be poured), 1 container whipped topping, then  1/2 the crushed Heath candy bars  into a triffle bowl. Repeat with chocolate cake.


Next mix the other 1/2  of pudding with 1 cup milk, mixing well and allowing to thicken slightly (so it can still be poured).


Add another layer of whipped topping.


Top with the remaining 1/2 of crushed Heath candy bars.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot
    about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a
    little bit, but other than that, this is wonderful blog.
    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.

    I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I'm assuming
    having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% positive. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I saw this recipe when you first posted it. I needed to make a dessert that I hadn't made before while visiting my family on vacation. I pulled this recipe up and with the help of my 13 year niece, we made this. My family LOVED it. My dad did suggest butterfingers next time instead of Heath bars. My nephew requested snickers. Thanks for posting. It's a recipe I will be making over and over again!

    Thank you cindylouh, I might try it with whipped cream - I am in Australia and have absolutely no idea what Frozen Whipped Topping is!

    *drool* That looks absolutely delicious! Def going to have to make this.

    Hmm, is whipped topping just whipped cream?
    • Sunday, May 31st, 2009
      I think you could substitute whipped cream, however I used thawed frozen whipped topping.
  22. Saturday, May 30th, 2009
    That is so beautiful and easy! You're right!
    I probably just gained 10 lbs reading your last two posts. :)
    Keep them coming!

    I do one with brownie mix, cool whip, and cherry pie filling, bake the brownies, cut into tiny squares, then do the layering - really yummy! Yours sounds yummy too - I will have to try it!

    Oh my, that looks amazingly. Just what I needed, another chocolate recipe ;P

    That looks SO GOOD! I started making some trifles at Christmas last year. I have a recipe for one using a gingerbread mix and vanilla pudding and it was great. They are so easy to whip up, and everyone loves them. I'm going to make this recipe for my kids when they get home from summer camp later this summer as a special "welcome home" dessert!!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Awesome!! This looks PERFECT to take to our family outdoor dinners! My in-laws love chocolate! I really love your site! I come almost every day and I love your fun ideas and crafts. Thank you so much!

    Ah, this is my go-to dessert when I have company (though I use brownies instead of cake). I've not had any complaints yet...
  31. Friday, May 29th, 2009
    OH.MY.GOODNESS!!!!!! Chocolate cake, chocolate pudding and HEATH together????

    I've died and gone to chocolate cake heaven!
  32. Friday, May 29th, 2009
    I am going to die if I don't make this soon. On the otherhand, I might die if I eat the whole thing!!! I'm linking!
  33. Friday, May 29th, 2009
    Oh my! This looks like HEAVEN in a bowl. I am so glad I stopped by today. Now I need to go to the store and pick up some ingredients. THANK YOU!!! Stacy
  34. Friday, May 29th, 2009
    Is this allowed? It looks like pure heaven and earth... Are you meant to share it? Can't be... No this is definitely one of those eat solo type desserts... hmmmm I am wondering if I should go there... bookmark or close the window - tough call!!!
  35. Friday, May 29th, 2009
    I've got this same recipe, with one exception! When the cake comes out of the oven, poke lots of holes in the top and pour 1/2 cup of amaretto over it. The cake soaks it up and it tastes yummy! I love your website, by the way, I've just never commented. I'm so proud of myself for making several crayon rolls!
  36. Friday, May 29th, 2009
    Ha! I laughed when I saw this because this past weekend my husband said he wanted this exact dessert. I told him sure as long as he made it. He did and it was sooo good. Except aroung here we call is Skor Bar Pudding. No Heath bars allowed!
