Chocolate Trifle Recipe

This is easy if you have all the ingredients on hand. This recipe makes a large bowl so the next time you want to wow your family and friends make this dessert!

I'm so happy to have my sister Aliya visiting me. When I made this bowl of chocolate heaven the other day, Aliya loved it and asked me to post it on the blog.

If you are a chocoholic, like myself, you will love this dessert. And, even if you aren't you will still love this dessert. Spoonfuls of moist fudgey cake, goopy, chocolate pudding, sticky caramel, clouds of whipped cream and crunchy pieces of toffee...what's not to love??

I use boxed, fudge or dark chocolate cake mix for this recipe because it has a light texture and is not too sweet. I make my own chocolate pudding because I can control the sweetness and consistency. I use my own caramel...remember I told you about boiling several cans of condensed milk and storing them in your cupboard? If not...scroll down to my recipe for Banoffee Pie. And, the star of the show for me, is the crushed Daim chocolate toffee. 😋

Chocolate Trifle Recipe

Sadia Hussain




1 Hour


  • 1 boxed cake mix, baked according to directions and cooled

  • Chocolate pudding

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk that has been boiled for 5 hours to thick caramel     consistency

  • 4 cups cold, heavy cream, whipped to stiff peaks

  • 2 cups Daim chocolates, chopped

For the Pudding

  • 1 1/3 cups sugar

  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder

  • 6 tablespoons cornstarch

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 4 1/2 cups full fat milk

  • 3 teaspoons vanilla

  • 2 tablespoons cold butter


  1. In a medium pot, mix sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, salt and milk. Cook on medium heat, stirring continuously until thick and creamy. Take off heat and stir in vanilla and butter. Set aside to cool, covering pudding with plastic wrap.

  2. In a bowl, mix caramel until smooth.

  3. I like to take round cookie cutters to cut chocolate cake.

  4. Start with one layer of cake, layer of caramel, layer of chocolate pudding, layer of whipped cream and a generous layer of Daim pieces.

  5. Repeat and top with whipped cream.

Tips and Bits

You can make this in small ramekins for individual servings.

Remember to place plastic wrap touching the surface of the pudding to avoid a thick skin forming as the pudding cools.

SKOR or Heath bars can be substituted for Daim chocolates.
