Trifle always looks great, it is easy to transport and serve and usually a crowd pleaser. Trifle traditionally has a few key ingredients which can be combined in different flavors and embellished. This recipe is the concoction I came up with.
Red Velvet Black Forest Trifle
1 prepared red velvet cake
2 large containers of frozen whipped topping [thawed]
1 can cherry pie filling
1 cup chocolate chunks or chips
1/2 cup Kilhua
1/2 cup chocolate syrup
Tear cooled cake into pieces. Place a handful of cake pieces in the bottom of a 4 quart bowl. Drizzle 1/2 of the Kilhua over the cake. Spread 1/3 can of cherries. Sprinkle 1/3 cup chocolate chunks. Drizzle 2 tablespoons chocolate syrup. Spread 1/2 container whipped topping. Repeat for three layers finishing with whipped topping for the final layer. Refrigerate.
