This attractive trifle goes together easily using ready-made bakery chocolate cakes, instant pudding mix, raspberry jam, and frozen whipped topping. Garnish the top with fresh raspberries and shaved chocolate.

  • Servings: 12

Ingredients:

14 oz can Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 cup Cold Water
1 tsp Almond Extract
3.4 oz pkg Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
2 cups Frozen Whipped Topping, thawed
Two 16 Oz. Chocolate Creme Cakes From Bakery (rich Chocolate Cake With Just a Glaze, not frosting),or bake your own chocolate cake in a 9x13 pan
6 oz Raspberry Jam
24 oz Frozen Raspberries, well-drained and sweetened with sugar, if needed
Fresh Raspberries, for garnish
Shaved Chocolate, for garnish

Directions:

In a large bowl beat together milk, water, and extract until blended.

Add pudding mix, whisk for 2 minutes, and let stand for 2 minutes or until soft set. Cover and chill until firm; fold in whipped topping. Cut the cake into cubes, place half in a glass trifle bowl. Top with 1/3 whipped pudding mixture; carefully spread jam over this layer. Next layer with half of the raspberries, layer of cake, 1/3 cream, rest of raspberries and finally remainder of pudding mixture. Sprinkle with fresh raspberries and top with shaved chocolate.

Helpful Tips:

This is my fav combo, chocolate and raspberries. It is so easy to do especially if you purchase your cake. This makes a spectacular presentation too, just don't tell how easy it was!
