Death by Chocolate Trifle Dessert

Death by Chocolate Trifle Dessert. Really the name says it all. Perfect for parties or holiday gatherings. Once you try it you will LOVE this dessert.

Death by Chocolate Trifle Dessert is the perfect dessert for any chocolate lover!  It is also perfect for parties, picnics and time together with family.  This recipe is sure to be one of everyone’s favorites. It is filled with the goodness of mousse pudding, devil’s food cake, Snickers candy bars and whipped cream!  You can even tweak these ingredients if you have other candy bars on hand, however this recipe is delicious as is.

The best part about the Death by Chocolate Trifle Dessert is you can prepare it the day before or prep the layers ahead of time. Then you can assemble it right before the party!  It travels well which makes it easy to take to Thanksgiving or Christmas parties.  This leaves time for me to do other things and keep the stress away when planning for a large crowd to come over.
