Twix Trifle

This twix trifle was first thought up as a quick Easter dessert. My family quickly fell in love with it and so, I decided I would share it. Twix Trifle

 I decided I would just make two individual trifles and put the rest into cake balls. The recipe can easily go into a large trifle bowl. To do that, just double the recipe except for the cake mix. You will definitely want to try these mugs of chocolate caramel goodness. There's a surprise crunch from chopped up twix candy bars in the layers.

I find that every time I make cake pops, I have a helping hand. It's so cute to watch my son climb up on my stool and reach for a cake pop ball. Most of the time, he'll take down two or three before I get them coated with chocolate or a stick pushed in them. Nothing is cuter than a baby Lucian sporting a cake goatee.

  • 1 boxed cake mix , prepared
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup oil

Caramel Whipped Cream

  • 1 half pint heavy cream
  • 1 cup caramel topping

Chocolate Pudding

  • 1 box fudge chocolate pudding
  • 2 cups milk , cold




  • Prepare your boxed cake mix. My cake mix called for 3 eggs, 1 cup water, and ½ cup oil. Follow the directions on the back of the box.

Whipped Cream

  • In a large bowl, beat heavy cream on high. I used a large bowl, so the cream wouldn't go all over the counter as I mixed it on high.
  • Once it becomes stiff and fluffy, Make a hole in the middle for the caramel to sit. I do this so that the heaviness of the caramel doesn't deflate the whipped cream.
  • Pour about 1 cup of caramel in the hole. Turn the mixer on high and whip until the caramel is incorporated.
  • Place in the fridge until the cake and pudding are prepared.
  • Once everything is prepared, place whipped cream in a piping bag.


  • In a small bowl, pour the pudding and 2 cups of milk in. Whisk for two minutes. Let set for 5 minutes.
  • Place in a piping bag or ziploc bag.

Assembling Trifle

  • In your mugs or trifle bowl, start out with pieces of the cake. I just ripped pieces off and stuffed them in the mug.
  • Pipe a layer of whipped cream.
  • Pipe a layer of pudding.
  • Chop of a Twix bar and spread the pieces evenly on top of the pudding layer.
  • Add another layer of cake, whipped cream, pudding, and Twix pieces.
  • Repeat until you come to the top of the trifle.
  • Top with piped whipped cream and shards of Twix.
  • Heat the fudge topping for 30 seconds and drizzle on top.
  • Cut Twix bar in half and add for the last garnish in your individual trifle mugs.


To store any leftover Twix Trifle, place in an air tight container or mason jars and put in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

  1. This looks amazing, I bet it has 9 million calories in it! All the good stuff does 🙂 Honestly this does look good and I love the serving suggestion. This is such a brilliant idea, I bet it would work for other chocolate bars as well, quick you should market this and sell it 🙂
