My husband taught me how to make this... something he picked up on the mission. Which is really odd, considering he doesn't like dessert, especially cake. But anyway, it is SO good! And one of the easiest things to make!
Death by Chocolate
1 chocolate cake mix
1 (5.8oz) pkg. choclate pudding mix
1 8oz. container cool whip
3 Tbsp. skor candy chips
Prepare cake according to package directions and let cool completely.
Once cooled, cut cake into 1" pieces.
Prepare pudding according to package directions.
In a trifle bowl, dump half of the cake pieces into the bottom.
Smash cake pieces down with a spoon, compacting as much as possible.
Pour half of the pudding over the cake.
Spread half of the cool whip over the pudding.
Repeat with the remaining layers, smashing down the cake pieces again.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 12-24 hours. Top with skor candy chips just before serving.
- The longer it sits, the more the cake with absorb the pudding, creating a moist, DELICIOUS texture. Don't skip this part... it is much too dry and not as satisfying if you eat it right away.
- Also, the skor chips will start to dissolve into the whip cream, making them soggy, so be sure to add them just before you serve.
