Halloween parties can be fun and spooky, but they also require you to serve some delicious treats. This Halloween Trifle is packed with Peeps and chocolate, but is so easy that anyone can make it. With all of the Halloween items in stores in August and September, grab the supplies you need early!
If you get to the store and find that they only have Ghost Peeps or only have Pumpkin Peeps, don’t worry! There are several other Halloween Peeps and you may be able to get some Monster Peeps or Spooky Cat Peeps instead. Those would work just as well!
This recipe is vegetarian and – as long as you have a sweet tooth! – is unbelievably delicious. Now, it’s time to get the Halloween party started!
Halloween Trifle Recipe
2 boxes chocolate instant pudding 3.4 oz
4 cups milk
Prepared boxed chocolate fudge cake (Pillsbury/Duncan Hines with oil, eggs, water as instructed by the directions on the box)
1 package Halloween ghost Peeps
1 package Halloween pumpkin Peeps
1 cup candy corn
Prepare your chocolate fudge cake according to the directions on the box. You can use Pillsbury, Duncan Hines or any other brand that you may find on sale or have handy.
Once you’ve prepared it, allow the cake to cool completely. Slice your cake into small cubes.
In a medium sized bowl, pour both boxes of instant pudding. Pour in the required milk (this should be 4 cups, but verify this on your specific box) and mix well. Refrigerate for five minutes to set.
Line the bottom sides of your trifle dish with your ghost Peeps, leaving a small space in between each one. You’ll want them to be standing up and facing out of the dish.
Fill the center of your ghosts layer with your chocolate cake cubes, filling the space in between all your ghosts as well as possible. Don’t be afraid to let the cake fall to smaller pieces.
Place a layer of about half of your chocolate pudding onto your cake/Ghost Peeps.
Now, line the sides of your trifle dish (on top of the pudding) with your Halloween pumpkin Peeps. You’ll want them to be standing up and facing out of the dish.
Fill the center with more cake cubes and top off with the rest of your chocolate pudding.
Use the rest of your pumpkin Peeps to make a circle on the top center of your trifle. Fill the center with candy corn and sprinkle the candy corn around the pumpkin.
