Victoria Unutoa-White "Torie"


1 pkg of any Devil's food cake mix
Make and bake as directed on box.
1 pkg Chocolate Moose pudding
Make as directed and set aside.
1 cup Kahlua, more if you want
1 large tub of cool whip
2 Skor candy bars, broken up, or any toffee candy bars
Chocolate syrup
Chocolate kisses or anything chocolate to decorate the top with.

Bake cakes per package directions. While still warm, pour Kahlua over the cakes and let cool.
Make pudding per package directions, set aside.
Cut or break up your cakes into medium size cubes or 2" squares.
Place 1/2 of Kahlua soaked cake in any glass truffle dish (I use a large glass bowl)
Cover with half of the pudding then spread one of the broken candy bars over cake,
cover with half of the cool whip and drizzle chocolate syrup over cool whip.
Repeat the same order as above for another layer.
Chill till ready to serve.

Decorate the top with any kind of chocolate you like or decorate for the season.
Can add extra Kahlua at any point of the layering process.
This also looks really pretty in a truffle dish.
