Mom’s Chocolate Triffle

I do not have an official recipe for this dessert nor do I know how my Mom learned of this recipe. All I know is that she has been making it as long as I can remember.

026
Start with box chocolate cake, and instant chocolate pudding. Make both according to their individual recipes. Keep the pudding in the fridge, and let the cake cool.
 
028
Once the cake is completely cool, you can assemble all the layers.
 
029
Cut the cake into squares. Just eyeball it.
 
030
make a layer of cake at the bottom. You should use of half of the cake.
 
031
Drizzle as much caramel sauce over the cake as you want.
 
032
Add a layer of the chocolate pudding, again using half.
 
033
Add a layer of whip cream. I chose Cool Whip, it’s easier to spoon out. About half
the container.
 
Repeat all the steps/layers again, using the remaining ingredients.
 
034
I drizzled a little caramel on the top to add a little luster.
 
035
All the layers from the side.
 

This dessert is not meant to look great. It’s super easy, quick and simple. It’s so good, and usually doesn’t last long when guests are over. There are also a million different variations that you can make. I always stick with this combination because it reminds me of being a kid and coming home from school to getting to enjoy this with my brother!

Hope you enjoy!
