Black Forest Trifle


I went to a surprise potluck Farewell party for one of my old work colleagues who has taken a new job.....I made Black Forest was yummmy!!!!  One of the girls (Tracy) volunteered to have this gig at her house----thanks Tracy, that's a lot of work!  Even though it's potluck and everybody brings awesome food and's a huge thing for the house owner.....and a fab "hostess with the mostess" she was!!  S|he was busy as a bee barbequing and fetching ice, cold beers, etc......awesome stuff ;O)

Well, here's the trifle and the recipe.........

Black Forest Trifle

chocolate cake mix (baked, cooled  and chopped into bitesize pieces)
1 can cherry pie filling
1 chocolate pudding (prepared)
3 cups whipped cream
In a large glass bowl, place 2 cups cake chunks
Add 1 cup whipped cream, then a layer of cherry filling
Add a layer chocolate pudding, 
then alternate layers, ending with a topping of whipped cream..

I grated milk chocolate chunks and sprinkled over top

Here's how it looked........

This is a simple recipe...I actually froze half of the baked cake for another time.  I made this last summer, replacing the canned cherry filling with fresh raspberries.  What's your favorite trifle recipe??
