Not only is this Chocolate Trifle pretty, just look at its yummy layers! It feeds a crowd, so it’s perfect for parties or family gatherings. The oohhs and aahhhs you’ll receive when you make it – prove it! There are so many occasions for Chocolate Trifle Recipes! [1]

Since it’s so easy to put together, we highly recommend this dessert for anyone no matter what skill level you are in the kitchen.

We made dark chocolate brownies [2] from scratch for this recipe, so we didn’t need a brownie mix, but mixes are great in this recipe, too! The addition of the crunchy Heath English Toffee bits for a topping was a great alternative to a chocolate bar.

Chocolate Trifle Recipe ingredients - Jello Pudding, condensed milk and healthy bits on a tray.

What really makes this recipe special and eye-catching is displaying it in a trifle bowl. If you need a Trifle Bowl [3], this is the one we have. It’s inexpensive and has held up well through the years.

Our all-time favorite is the No Bake Caramel Apple Cheesecake Trifle [5].
