I think I was feeling especially holiday-ey for my Friday treats at work (this was a few weeks before Christmas. yes, i know am very late posting...). Not only did I bring the ever popular Swedish Meatballs, but I also brought another very popular recipe: Skor Bar Trifle. I clearly remember having this trifle for the first time. At my previous job, we would have a Christmas potluck lunch and my colleague M always brought this trifle by demand. I remember having a spoonful of this chocolatey amazingness mixed with whipped cream and loving it. Later on in the afternoon, I came for seconds. M sent out the recipe and every time I've made it, it's been a hit, just like the meatballs!
What's so great about this recipe is that there are only four ingredients and it is really an assembly job rather than cooking. You can buy all the ingredients ready made. It's rare that I don't make things from scratch but the results are so good. My friend Trapezista has been known to make each ingredient from scratch and assemble them. You can definitely do that, but the lazy way will yield winning results too!
Skor Bar Trifle
Quantities aren't super important. You just need enough to have a mixture of all four ingredients when scooped out.
* 1 package of one bite brownies (or you could bake low-calorie brownies)
* 1 package of chocolate pudding (you could also make it from scratch, or I bought the ready made kind!)
* 1 container of Cool Whip (or whip your own!)
* 4 bars of Skor, pulsed or chopped finely (or make Just-like-Skor bars)
Plan for about 3 layers so use a third of each ingredient.
Slice brownies in half, and lay a third of them at the bottom.
Cover with a third of your pudding.
Cover with a third of your whipped cream.
Sprinkle with chopped Skor bar.
Repeat for the next two layers.
The four stars of the trifle!
I didn't take a picture once scooped out but the whipped cream and the pudding mixes together to make a brown mess. You then dig into a piece of brownie and there are little pieces of Skor bar. It's chocolate heaven!
