1 (18.25 ounce) package
chocolate cake mix
2 (3.9 ounce) packages
JELL-O Chocolate Flavor Instant Pudding & Pie Filling
1 (8 ounce) tub
COOL WHIP Whipped Topping, thawed
4 (1.4 ounce) bars
chocolate-covered English toffee bars, crushed
This makes a wonderful presentation. It is very sweet. Found you needed 12 oz. size of cool whip.
For a decadent adult version of this, drizzle Kahlua on the chocolate cake layer! I have been doing this for years and it's definately a hit.
I make the pudding with only 3 cups of milk and then stir in 1/3 cup of Kahlua for a more "adult" flavor.
When my in-laws popped in unexpectedly, this was a life saver. I had seen this dessert brought to potlucks, but had never made one myself until the other night. It is so easy to put together, but the combined presentation and taste make it seem really special. I now have the ingredients stashed away for those last minute guests.
in a pinch i used chocolate angel food cake- everyone loved it!
This is an excellent Dessert. We have a group of friends and we take turns with Pot Luck Dinners. They insist that I bring this every time.
I'm not sure Kahlua would have improved this. I made it for Christmas Day dessert. My kids (boys 16 & 19) actually fought over it! Forget the rare prime rib I fixed, this was their choice. How sad, I only got one serving before it disappeared. Thanks for the great recipe.
