    I know I saw on a post somewhere a recipe for a death by chocolate recipe for the trifle bowl that involved choc. cake or brownies, pudding, heath bars, etc. Can anyone please share a recipe like that, and let me know if it can sit overnight. Thank you!

    That's so funny - I was just looking for the same one! Here is one I've found so far....I'm making this for a Super Bowl Party this weekend!

    DOUBLE CHOCOLATE MOCHA TRIFLE


    1 package (18.25oz) brownie mix (plus ingredients to make brownies)
    1 ¾ cup cold milk
    2 packages (3.4oz each) white chocolate instant pudding and pie filling
    ¼ cup warm water
    4 teaspoons instant coffee granules
    2 cups thawed frozen whipped topping
    3 toffee bars (1.5 ounces each)

    1. Lightly spray 9”x13” Baker with vegetable oil using Kitchen Spritzer. Prepare and bake brownie mix according to the cake-like package directions. Cool completely.

    2. In Classic 2-Qt Batter Bowl, whisk pudding mix into milk using 10” Whisk until mixture begins to thicken. Dissolve coffee granules in warm water; add to pudding mixture, mixing well. Fold in whipped topping using Super Scraper.

    3. Cut brownies into 1-inch cubes.

    4. Chop toffee bars using Food Chopper.

    5. Layer 1/3 of brownie cubes onto bottom of Chillzanne® Bowl. Top with 1/3 of pudding mixture, pressing lightly, and 1/3 of chopped toffee. Repeat layers two more times.

    6. Chill 30 minutes before serving.

    Yield 12 servings
    NOTE: Vanilla instant pudding and pie filling may be substituted for white chocolate pudding, if desired.

    I was hoping for one without coffee, if possible. Unfortunately I can detect any amount of coffee in a recipe and it totally turns me off. I'm a little odd in that way.:eek:

    Here's a very easy one....

    Make 2 packages of brownies in large bar pan.
    Cool and cut into bite size pieces.

    Make large size chocolate instant pudding...allow to set.

    Fill EAD with cool whip. Fold remaining cool whip into pudding.

    Place a layer of brownies in bottom of trifle bowl, spoon apprx 1/3 of pudding mixture on top of brownies.

    Chop Heath Bar with food chopper, sprinkle on top of pudding.

    Repeat for two more layers.

    Garnish top with cool whip in EAD and make chocolate curls with Hershey bar and vegetable peeler.

    I'm not sure how well it will hold up overnight, but you can make everything the night before and assemble very quickly.

    I went through all my Season's Best cookbooks, and all I could find besides the other one I posted, was the Cappuccino Mousse Trifle (which of course has coffee) and the Lemon Blueberry Trifle. On the other hand, I ran across a ton of torte recipes. I'm going to check them out to see if they can be adapted to our new pans.

    IMO they taste better if they do sit overnight. It gives all the flavors a chance to mingle and soak into the cake/brownie.

    This was sooooooo good! The only problem I had was that I couldn't fit the whole thing into the bowl! Maybe I should have mashed the first layer of cake down before adding the pudding and cool whip.

    I made this last night with the 2 brownie mixes instead of the cake...and it is sooo good! And the brownies didn't all fit, I probably could have squished them in more...but instead, I just had some leftover brownies to leave at home!

    And you definitely want to let your trifle sit overnight, the brownies or cake soak up some of the pudding...mmmmm!

    I made this for the Super Bowl Party we went to - it was loved by EVERYONE! Even the kids.....I did have some changes to it though - I thought I had vanilla pudding, but it was Cheesecake pudding, so used that. I used a 1/4 cup of strong coffee w/ and extra teaspoon of instant coffee in it (instead of hot water and 4 teas. of instant) and I also included a teas. of cinnamon in the brownie mix. there were 6 adults and 4 children, and the bowl was scraped clean!
    Oh - and it was one of the guys birthday, so I used extra cool whip in the EAD to decorate the top, and grated some chocolate over it, and put some candles in the top of it - it looked very pretty - definitely had a WOW factor to it! And it was so easy!

    Lots of layers...

    Julie, glad you liked the chocolate trifle recipe! So far, I've never had a recipe from the KraftFoods.com site not turn out to be good (knock on wood). I just made a "Winter Black Bean Salsa" from there the other night and it was also fantastic!

    Anyway, my sister-in-law also makes a trifle with angelfood cake, vanilla or cheesecake pudding, blueberry pie filling, and cool whip (layer as directed in the other recipes) and it's really, really good also! It tastes a lot like a cheesecake when she gets done, but is easier to make.....

    Somebody also mentioned doing a layered salad in the trifle bowl, there's lots of recipes for that, too. I did a search for "layered" and here are the results: http://www.kraftfoods.com/main.aspx?s=recipe&m=recipe/knet_recipe_grid&u1=keyword&u2=layered . Not all the recipes will work with a trifle dish, but if you mouse over the names, you can see pictures and it's easy to tell what will or won't work.

    I used just brownies in mine (cake-like), but after letting it sit overnight, you couldn't tell it was brownies! Everyone was so surprised, it soaked up the pudding and made it just ooey gooey...everyone thought that it was cake!
