 I have lots of favorites. This is just one:

Decadent Chocolate Trifle
21 oz package brownie mix, (or 18 ½ oz chocolate cake mix) prepared as directed.
½ cup Kahlua (optional)
Two (3oz. each) boxes instant chocolate pudding, prepared with half&half instead of milk
16oz container whipped topping or 1 pint heavy cream, whipped
8 small chocolate covered toffee bars (Skor), frozen and finely chopped or one
7.5 oz bag of almond brickle chips
Cut cooled cake into chunks. In glass trifle bowl, layer 1/3 cake, sprinkle with Kahlua, layer 1/3 pudding, 1/3 whipped topping, 1/3 candy chips. Repeat layers two more times.

Variations:
Peach-Substitute a 18 ¼ oz yellow cake mix, ½ cup ammaretto, apricot or peach jam, French vanilla pudding, canned or frozen or fresh peaches, whipped topping, garnish with toasted sliced almonds
Strawberry-frozen pound cake, (I don’t use liquor for this because the strawberries are so juicy, but you could), cheesecake pudding, fresh strawberries, (can use strawberry preserves when fresh aren’t in season), whipped topping. Save a few berries for garnish.
Blackberry-lemon-purchased bakery poundcake, lemon pudding, jar lemon curd (found in grocery near jelly), fresh blackberries or blackberry preserves, whipped topping. Save a few berries for garnish.
Banana-banana bread-banana liqueur, banana pudding, sliced bananas (dipped in lemon juice to preserve color), whipped topping.
Autumn-spice cake sprinkled with ammaretto, whipped cream, cheesecake pudding, apricot jam, almonds & cherries for garnish.

Raspberry-chocolate cake, raspberry jam, Framboise, cheesecake pudding, whipped cream with toasted sliced almonds and fresh raspberries for garnish.
Key Lime-pound cake, Key Lime curd, vanilla pudding, blackberry preserves, blackberry brandy, whipped cream, with black walnuts and fresh blackberries for garnish.

As you can see, you can use almost anything you little heart desires. A dieter’s delight can be made using angelfood cake, sugar-free pudding and skim milk, and fresh fruit, no liqueur and sugar-free fruit spread or fresh fruit, and no-fat whipped topping.

This is very easy to put together, tastes good, and makes a very pretty presentation.
