“When our daughter played basketball one of the mom's brought this to a dinner and I have been making it ever since. You can also use your favorite candy bar ie: butterfinger etc. I also put it in a trifle bowl and it's the hit of the party.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 pepperidge farm frozen chocolate cake
  • 2 (15 3/4 ounce) cans chocolate pudding (I use thank you brand)
  • 2 (16 ounce) cartons Cool Whip
  • 6 crushed Heath candy bars


  1. First, cut the frozen cake into squares.
  2. I first cut the cake into half and it's easier this way.
  3. Take 1/2 of the cake that you cut into squares and place them in the bottom of the trifle bowl.
  4. Put 1 can of the pudding on top of the cake then spread 1 carton of the cool whip on top of the pudding.
  5. I put the candy bars in a ziploc bag and crush with a rolling pin, put 1/2 of the candy mixture on top of the cool whip.
  6. Then put the remaining cake, pudding, cool whip and top with remaining candy bars on top.
  7. This needs a warning, very addictive.
