Chocolate Raspberry Trifle

Pin It
Have you ever made a trifle?  I hadn't.  Not before this deliciousness that I made the other day. I can't believe how easy a trifle is to make.
All I had to do was pick out what flavor combination I wanted then just prepare the cake and fillings.  The possibilities are endless.  I can't wait to try my next one.   Trifle is an elegant looking dessert that takes a minimum of effort with maximum flavor and can be served at any occasion.

Here's what you need:

1 box devils food or chocolate cake mix, plus the fixings to make the cake (I used Pillsbury)
1 small box (3.9 oz.) instant chocolate pudding
2 cups cold milk (I used 2%, but whole would be fine too)
1 cup seedless raspberry jam, heated and liquid
1 - 8 or 16 oz. tub of Cool Whip, depending on how much you want to use.  I used about 2/3 of the 16 oz.

Bake the cake according to the package directions and let cool completely.  Cut into 1-1/2 inch cubes.

Prepare the pudding according to the package about 10 minutes before starting to layer the trifle.

Place the raspberry jam into a microwave safe bowl and heat in 30 second increments until it is liquid.
You will be making a total of three layers.

In the bottom of a trifle bowl or a large glass bowl start your layering.  One layer of chocolate cake cubes, and squish them in so the bottom is mostly covered. Next spoon on 1/3 of the jam.
Next add 1/3 of the chocolate pudding then 1/3 of the Cool Whip.
Repeat the layers two more times.  
Chill for at least 3 hours before serving.  Dish up and enjoy!

Serves - a lot
