Tips & Notes for Grandma’s Chocolate Trifle

  • Feel free to use any baked chocolate cake recipe you want! You could even use a store-bought chocolate cake or store-bought plain cupcakes. I like using my doctored up cake mix recipe.
  • My grandma’s recipe calls for only one 3.4 ounce box of pudding mix. But I like for the trifle to be really moist, so I like to use two boxes. I also double the Cool Whip that her original recipe calls for.
  • You can replace the toffee bits with Snickers or Butterfingers! There are probably other yummy substitutions, but those are two that I’ve tried and like a lot.
