Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 8 people

Ingredients
  • 1 3 count box of Bunny Peeps or any other bunny shaped candy
  • Hershey's Candy Coated Milk Chocolate Eggs
  • 1 box of Betty Crocker Super Moist Cake Mix: Chocolate Fudge
  • 1 Family Size Oreos crushed
  • 1 Family Size Chocolate Instant Pudding Mix
  • 1 8 oz tub of Whipped Topping
Additional ingredients needed:
  • water, oil, and eggs to make cake according to package directions
  • milk for pudding
Instructions
  1. First mix and bake cake in a 13x9 inch baking dish according to package instructions. Set aside and allow to cool completely before assembling your trifle.

  2.  After the cake has completely cooled, divide the cake into 3 equal sections. 

  3. Slice each section into small 1 inch cubes and set aside. In a mixing bowl, mix together the chocolate pudding with 1 1/2 cups milk (which is half of the milk that the box requires).

  4. Then fold in the whipped topping with a rubber spatula until it is combined with the pudding mixture. Set aside. Divide the crushed Oreos into 3 equal portions.

To Assemble the Trifle:
  1. To assemble the trifle, begin layer each ingredient (the cake, pudding, and crushed Oreos) into a trifle dish making sure to end the layers with crushed Oreos on the top to resemble "dirt".

  2. Next, take a wooden cooking skewer and slide the peep bunny onto one end of it. Place the bunny into the center of the dirt cake.

  3. Finish the trifle by adding Hershey's Candy Coated Milk Chocolate Eggs around the top of the dirt cake.

I think this cake is just as adorable as it is delicious. Since this trifle is simple to make, I think it would be a great family activity to get the children involved in. They could help with the layering of the ingredients into the trifle dish or adding those finishing touches of the Easter Eggs and Bunny to the top of the dirt cake.

    Made this! Turned out pretty good! I’m going to try making the pudding less thick next time. I looked at a lot of different dirt cake recipes and I liked this one bc no extra butter and cake addition. Thanks so much!
