Hi there. So this blog post is inspired by the ladies over at The Blended Blog. Some virtual friends of mine who saw a picture of this tasty treat that I posted on my social media sites suggested that I post the recipe that I used. Since it turned out I decided I would share.
Here is the back story to why I created this dessert in the first place. Last weekend my daughter wanted to make chocolate cake. So I pulled out my trusty recipe book that I have used since I was a kid. I decided on Texas Brownies. Its a simple recipe, and one I have made many, many times. Well we made the cake, iced it, and later that day ate a piece with some ice cream. It was good. So I went to have more, and then actually looked at my cake. It was super weird, almost like it hadn’t been cooked long enough, and was too moist. It was weird, and never happened before (I must have been distracted while making…Ooops!). And so the cake sat on the counter for days, and no one, not even my hubby was touching it. I couldn’t bring myself to toss it. So I hopped onto Pinterest and searched for something to do with cake, that would mask the weird moistness that should not be. I decided a Trifle would be the best option.
Dani’s Chocolate Skor Trifle aka the chocolate cake that flopped.
You will need:
- A trifle bowl
- chocolate cake (mine was a flopped or you can make a chocolate cake of your choosing)
- Box of instant chocolate pudding
- 1 tub of Cool Whip
- Skor Bits
- Chocolate Sauce
- Caramel Sauce
- Chop up the chocolate cake or if you are making from scratch cut so it fits into the bottom of the bowl.
- Next make the instant chocolate pudding as per the box instructions and layer on top of the cake.
- Next add Cool Whip on top of pudding, then Skor bits, and chocolate and caramel sauce.
- Continue this pattern until your bowl is full, or you run out of ingredients.
- Cover with saran wrap and chill in refrigerator.
I think my bowl had about two layers. It was a LOT. But oh so delicious. I took it to a Games Night we attended with friends, and it was quickly devoured and a quick and easy way to hide my mistake.
Do you have any tasty recipes that you use to hide a mistake or a flop?
