Chocolate Candy Cane Trifle
Post by KD7LBR on Nov 7th, 2002, 12:57pm

1 pkg. chocolate cake mix
1 pt. heavy cream, whipped
6 candy canes, crushed
2 pkgs. vanilla pudding mix
1 c. Vandermint Cordial (optional) ( I use Torani{tm}Peppermint syrup instead)

Bake cake as directed on the package in a 9 x 13 inch pan. Cool and pierce all over with a fork. Pour 1/4 cup Vandermint over cake for 4 days in a row. Eliminate this step if not using the cordial.

On the day of assembly, cook and cool vanilla pudding. Whip heavy cream, sweetening to taste with confectioners' sugar.

In a large glass bowl, put in a layer of chocolate cake that has been cut into small squares. Pour some vanilla pudding over cake layer. Spread with a layer of whipped cream. Sprinkle with crushed candy canes.

Continue to add layers until the bowl is filled, ending with the whipped cream layer.

Garnish with crushed candy canes.
