Yummy! I made this with oreo cookies because I didn't feel like hunting down the toffee bars and skipped the almonds because I topped it with the crushed cookies. This is so yummy! I almost tried butterfinger bars but chickened out. Don't know why I think it would be hard to make this taste bad. Read More

Very good when made with brownie mixes instead of cake mixes too. I made it for a BBQ and it was devoured even before the meal! Read More

Wow this is sinfully good! I did a little scaling as the recipe makes a huge amount and I wanted to use my trifle bowl. I used 3 of the smaller boxes of pudding mix with 6 cups of milk. Instead of the frozen topping I made real whipped cream using a pint of heavy cream and just a little sugar. I used only a little over half of the cake and could have done with a little less pudding too. The recipe does say to use a large punch bowl....their not kidding! Read More

I make this often for large get togethers and everyone loves it! I use Kahlua flavored syrup in the chocolate cake after it is baked and crumbled. I also skip the candy bars & almonds. I wipe the inside of the bowl with a paper towel after each layer to give a cleaner look. Read More

This is pretty well my Death by Chocolate recipe except I use Kahlua instead of coffee liqueur and Skor chocolate bars. I also add zest of one orange to pudding add a layer of canned mandarine orange & top with mandarines. It's yummy! Read More

Another keeper. Serves a big crowd. 6 adults & 4 kids hardly put a dent in it! Easy to make - add your own favorites. I thought I was in trouble when I saw that I had purchased INSTANT pudding by mistake but it turned out great! Such an attractive dish! Read More
