Chocolate Shavings for garnishoptional
Bake your chocolate chip cookies and then let cool completely. Next, break into large pieces. Or, use store-bought and break into pieces. Set aside 4-5 cookies for topping.
While cookies are baking, make your whipped cream by placing the heavy whipping cream in a large bowl with ⅓ cup sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Beat with mixer until soft peaks form.
For the chocolate pudding, follow package instruction to make a chocolate pudding using whole milk.
If making individual servings, divide the cookies 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 cookie pieces in the bottom.
Create the second layer by topping the cookies with pudding. Make sure to go all the way to the edges to create a defined layer.
Create a layer of whipped cream (or Cool Whip), ensuring you spread it all the way to the edges.
Repeat all the layers (cookies, chocolate pudding, and whipped cream) at least one more time. Top this with reserved cookie pieces, then drizzle with chocolate sauce and finish with shaved chocolate if desired. Cover and refrigerate and serve when ready.
Most recipes, including this one, are so much better if you make your own whipped cream that’s lightly 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 can be made the night before and stored in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
This trifle is great for almost any festive occasion: Christmas, birthdays, church, potlucks, picnics, 4th of July, or bridal/baby showers.
