Recipes Worth Sharing - Chocolate Kahlua Dessert

I stumbled across this recipe online a few years ago. I tried it once, and FELL IN LOVE! It's great to make for parties, as it makes quite a lot, and looks awfully pretty layered in a trifle bowl.

Chocolate Kahlua Dessert

  • 1 box Devil's Food cake mix (and all required ingredients to make cake in pkg directions)
  • 2 pkg Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix (Jell-O brand Devil's Food or Fudge)
  • 3.5 cups whole milk (can substitute low fat, but why?)
  • 0.5 cup Kahlua liqueur
  • 2 containers Cool Whip (normal size, not family size)
  • 6 Heath Bars, crushed (I've had better luck finding bags of Heath ball candy in the stores. I use a whole bag, and crush them with a hammer.)
  1. Bake cake as directed in 9x13 pan, cool and cut into bite sized pieces.
  2. Prepare pudding with milk first, then add Kahlua.
  3. In a punch, trifle, or other large bowl, layer ½ cake pieces, then ½ pudding mixture, then ½ Cool Whip and Heath Bars. Repeat and refrigerate.

I have stolen your recipe. Now to convince R to have people over so I have an excuse to make it. Hmmm, holiday party with the neighbors (so their kids can play with Little H- yay for occupied children that I don't have to entertain) sounds like a good idea... Or, even better, neighbors dropping off their kids with Grandma on a weekend we don't have Little H, joy to the world a few hours to relax and be adults and not have to locate the sippy cup to add more juice.
