  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Make and bake cake mix as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Cool 5 minutes. Use fork to poke cake all over.
  • 2
    Drizzle liqueur over cake. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours but no longer than 12 hours.
  • 3
    Meanwhile, make chocolate mousse as directed on box. Cover and refrigerate until cake is ready.
  • 4
    To assemble, crumble one-fourth to one-third of cake into bottom of very large trifle or punch bowl. I like to use a punch bowl, which is typically much bigger than your typical trifle bowl.
  • 5
    Add a layer each of chocolate mousse, whipped cream and crushed candy. Repeat until you have 3 to 4 layers. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Expert Tips

  • If you are opposed to using liqueur, substitute chocolate syrup.
  • Feel free to make homemade chocolate mousse if you'd prefer. You need 8 to 10 cups of chocolate mousse.
