Death By Chocolate Trifle


  • 1 box Betty Cooker™ devil's food cake mix
  • Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
  • 1 cup coffee-flavored liqueur
  • 4 boxes (3 to 4 oz each) instant chocolate mousse mix
  • Milk called for on chocolate mousse mix boxes
  • 4 cups whipped cream
  • 6 full-size Snickers™ candy bars, crushed


1 _ Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Cool 5 minutes. Use fork to poke cake all over.

2 _ Drizzle liqueur over cake. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours but no longer than 12 hours.

3 _ Meanwhile, make chocolate mousse as directed on box. Cover and refrigerate until cake is ready.

4 _ To assemble, crumble one-fourth to one-third of cake into bottom of very large trifle or punch bowl. I like to use a punch bowl, which is typically much bigger than your typical trifle bowl.

5 _ Add a layer each of chocolate mousse, whipped cream and crushed candy. Repeat until you have 3 to 4 layers. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
