Death by Chocolate

This is my go to dessert for a big crowd, and it brings back such great memories from my teenage years. My friend Carolyn's mother used to make this for us girls when we would have big sleepovers. It is one of my cherished recipes from the recipe book I received at my bridal shower.

My mother is having a party at her house tomorrow night, so I put this together today for one of the desserts. If you love chocolate, you'll love this!

Death by Chocolate
Recipe from Carolyn and Lori Purwin


1 pkg. Duncan Hines dark chocolate cake mix
3 pkg, Jell-O instant chocolate pudding mix, prepared
2 large containers of Cool Whip
6 Hershey Skor Bars*


Bake cake according to directions in any pan. When cool, break into chunky pieces. Pour liquor into cake to let it soak for a couple of hours or overnight.

Make pudding according to directions. Wack Skor Bars against the counter to break into pieces. In a trifle bowl, make layers as follows - cake, pudding, whip cream, candy. Repeat until top layer is whip cream and Skor bars to decorate.

*I used Heath bits to save time this time, but I prefer it with the Skor bars. I added some mini chocolate chips because the bits were lacking chocolate
