LOOKING for: your favorite trifle or ice cream/cake recipe

annie1971March 7, 2008

I seem to have hit upon a good combination of chocolate cake and snickers bars. Can anyone give me their favorite trifle or ice cream/chocolate syrup or pudding concoction to turn into a frozen desert or trifle or pie thing?

This is refrigerated, not frozen:
PINK TORTE
1 box coconut macaroon cookies
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1 can crushed pineapple, drained
2 egg whites
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup boiling water
1 pkg Jello (any red color)

Crush cookies in a processor to make fine crumbs. Pour Jello into boiling water, stir until Jello is dissolved & refrigerate until partially set. Beat egg whites w/sugar until stiff.
In a separate bowl, beat whipping cream until thick. Remove Jello from refrigerator & beat until foamy. combine egg whites & whipping cream. Fold in Jello until entire mixture is smooth, no lumps. (This will be the pink mixture).
Grease bottom & sides of a springform pan (or you can use a 9x13" pan.) Sprinkle 1/3 of the cookie crumbs on the bottom & sides of the pan. Pour in 1/2 of hte pink mixture. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the macaroon crumbs, then layer all of the pineapple & then the remaining pink mixture. Finish topping with the last of the cookie crums. Refrigerate overnight.~~Kitchen Miracles

This is a quickie and I have made if often.....of course, you can use whipped cream instead of the Cool Whip.
Karen's Chocolate Trifle/Small Chocolate Cake
1 dark chocolate cake mix baked in 2 layers
3 boxes instant chocolate pudding mixed with 4 1/2c milk and 3/4c Kahlua or liqueur of your choice
1 large cool whip
4 Heath bars or brickle chips
Layer 1/2 cake layer in trifle bowl........top with half of the pudding mix and half cool whip.......sprinkle
with some candy and do another layer.
Refrigerate.
Small Chocolate Cake
1c sugar
1 egg
1/4c butter
3T unsweetened cocoa
1c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1c boiling water
Combine first 8 ingredients and mix well. Add water. Batter will be
thin. Pour into greased 8x8" pan and bake at 375° for 25-30 min.
This works great for the trifle but makes a nice small dessert for
2 people when frosted.

One time I made brownies in a loaf pan, sliced them in half lengthwise, partly melted some ice cream (just mixed until smooth, used crushed peanuts and fudge sauce and layered them all and refroze. That was really good.

BLACK PEPPER ICE CREAM

1 pint of good vanilla ice cream
2 tsp black pepper

Soften ice cream. Mix well with pepper.
Re-freeze ice cream.

I saw this on the Simply Ming cooking show, and the chef served it with a one-layer pineapple upside down cake. It's really good.
