I had some company over last week and decided to make Chocolate Trifle for dessert. It’s easy and yummy, but I wanted to serve it a little differently this time. I went and pulled out my half pint mason jars and knew they would be perfect! I love how just changing up the way you serve things almost seems like a whole new dessert.
Putting it into these jars took a little more work but I think they turned out so cute and were so pretty. Plus, it was all ready to serve when dinner was over. I cut out circles using my biscuit cutter and it made it so easy to fit the cake into the jars. I also used some disposable piping bags to add the cool whip and pudding in the jars.
Its always fun to layer things in jars! It’s not a new idea, but changing up the way you serve certain desserts can make a big impact. Not only were these yummy and fun to eat, but they were ready to serve and portioned out! They were definitely a hit.
Let me know if you make these Chocolate Trifle Jars. I would love to see how yours turned out.

- 1 box Devils Food Cake Mix
- 1 8oz Container Cool Whip, thawed
- 1-1/2 Cups Chocolate Toffee Bits
- 1 Large Box Instant chocolate Pudding
- First, bake cake according to directions on package in a 9x13 pan. After removing it from oven, cool completely.
While cake is baking, mix chocolate pudding and put into fridge.
To assemble: You will layer ingredients. I chose to use regular mouth pint jars so I cut out cake circles using a biscuit cutter that fit the jar perfectly. I also cut the circles in half so that the height of the cake was more manageable in the jars. (So it is still the shape of a circle, only it is not as thick!) Otherwise you can cut the cake into sections and use the layering technique for a trifle bowl.
Start with your cake layer, next add chocolate pudding in a layer. Add cool whip, and finish with a sprinkling of chocolate toffee bits. Start the process over using the same technique. Chill in fridge until ready to serve!
