If you've never had a trifle before, yes, you will think this is wonderful. I've been making trifles for years (chocolate with bananas, berries with pound cake) and I wanted to find a coffee flavored recipe for a coffee themed birthday at work.
With all the great reviews I picked this one. Made my own chocolate cake instead of brownies and used vanilla pudding. I doubled the coffee because I taste-tested and thought it was weak. After doubling it, it had a nice light mocha flavor.
I assembled it in the morning and refrigerated before serving, When I served it after lunch, I didn't taste the coffee anymore. People at work didn't care and still liked it, but I was disappointed that no one could taste the coffee, just tasted like chocolate cake and vanilla pudding. Next time I'd increase the coffee or buy something stronger. Oh, and I would leave some of the candy bar in larger chunks. Mine were crushed too much I guess and I didn't taste them. But everyone still loved this recipe, I just wanted a stronger coffee flavor.
