1box Devil's Food Cakeor any chocolate cake baked in a 13x9 pan
2packages Jell-O Dark Chocolate Instant Pudding
2cupsheavy whipping cream sweetened with 1/3 cup sugar and 1 tsp vanillaor 24 ounces of Cool Whip
Bake your cake according to package instructions in a 9x13 inch pan. Let cool completely and then break or cut into 1-inch cubes.
While the cake is baking, make your whipped cream by placing the heavy whipping cream in a large bowl with 1/3 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat with mixer until soft peaks form.
For the mousse, follow package instruction to make the chocolate pudding using whole milk. Once the pudding is fully set, add 1 cup whipped cream or Cool Whip and gently fold to mix.
If making individual servings, divide the cake into how many servings you’ll make (at least 6-8), and place half of each serving in the bottom of the cup, jar or dish. If using a large trifle dish, place half of the cubed cake at the bottom.
Create the second layer by topping the cake with raspberry jam and several fresh raspberries. Make sure the jam and fresh raspberries go all the way to the edges to create a defined layer.
Create a layer of chocolate mousse and then a layer of whipped cream (or Cool Whip), ensuring you spread them all the way to the edges.
Repeat all the layers (cake, raspberry jam, raspberries, chocolate mousse, and whipped cream) at least one more time. Top this with a drizzle of raspberry jam and a fresh raspberry if desired. Refrigerate or serve immediately.
The light and fluffy texture of Devils Food Cake is a great complement to chocolate mousse, but you could also use any type of chocolate cake in the recipe.
Most recipes, including this one, are sooo much better if you make your own whipped cream that’s slightly sweetened. However, if short on time, grab a tub of Cool Whip.
Trifles tend to look better if you make sure your layers go all the way to the side of your dish or cup and don’t have any gaps.
This recipe is also amazing with fresh strawberries instead of raspberries. Just substitute strawberry jam as well.
