Strawberry Chocolate Trifle

Desserts are fun to make and add a festive look to dinner.   We recently purchased some fun red wine glassed and I look for ways to repurpose things, so I decided to try individual trifles in the wine glasses.   

Finished Trifle...Yum!!!

I made these again in smaller cups for Kelly's birthday

1 box angel food cake mix
2 cups strawberries diced
5.1 oz. box of chocolate pudding mix
14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/4 cup water
8 oz container Cool Whip
2 tablespoon dark chocolate chips (I use Ghiradelli) melted

Make the angel food cake according to the box directions.  Allow the cake to thoroughly cool, then cut the cake into 1 inch cubes.

Mix the chocolate pudding, sweetened condensed milk, and water together until well blended.  Refrigerate for no more than 5 minutes to set.  Once set fold in most of the 8 oz Cool Whip  - I like to reserve some Cool Whip to dollop on top of the finished trifle.

Now, line up 4 wine glasses.  Add the chocolate pudding mixture to the bottom of each glass, next layer pieces of angel food cake, then layer strawberries, then repeat all layers.  Finish each trifle with a bit more chocolate pudding mixture and finally a dollop of plain Cool Whip.  I also sprinkled a few more diced strawberries on top.

Once this is done, melt the 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips  take a fork to drizzle the chocolate over the top of the dessert.  Cover the desserts and refrigerate for 2 or more hours.  Enjoy!
