Easy Chocolate Berry Trifle Recipe
Trifle is the dessert equivalent of lasagna. There are a zillion different ingredients you can use. The only requirement is that the ingredients are layered . But unlike lasagna, trifle is chilled, not baked.
I invented this particular taste combo for a friend. She loved the idea of trifle, but turned her nose up at my gingerbread-pumpkin trifle. I understand. Pumpkin (and gingerbread) are acquired tastes....
So for her birthday, I decided to experiment with more universally palatable tastes. Here's what I came up with:

100% Pre-made Ingredients -- too easy!
Sandra Lee's "Semi-Homemade" on the Food Network basically teaches us to cheat. Okay, maybe not "cheat" so much as "fudge." Take this recipe, for instance. I feel justifed in claiming it as authentic, homemade trifle. It's just made up of store-bought ingredients!!
1 chocolate cake (go for pound cake or bundt cake -- unfrosted or minimal frosting)
1 container chocolate pudding (I like Kozy Shack myself)
1 container frozen whipped topping (Cool Whip or store brand)
1 can strawberry pie filling (in the baking aisle)
1/2 bag frozen raspberries, thawed
Cake: If you like things nice and neat, slice cake and arrange a layer of slices on bottom of bowl. If you are like me, tear the cake into crumbled pieces.
Alternate layers of cake, pudding, strawberry filling, whipped cream and raspberries
I layered mine like this:
End with whipped cream. Decorate top with raspberries if desired
You should end up with 3-4 layers total
Chill in refrigerator 4 hours (overnight is best)
Spoon into dessert dishes and ENJOY!
