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.
