Growing up with two older brothers and being the only girl has made life interesting and entertaining. The level of sarcasm used in every day conversations has always been above average, and is the norm. When I make a new dessert for a family gathering and take it to them to try out, my brothers are always reliable taste testers to let me know what they really think. My mom has always said that actions speak louder than words, so when one of my brothers tells me something is “terrible” while scooping a second helping, and the other one refers to it as being “stupid” while scraping his plate clean, I’d say those were some pretty good compliments coming from them.
This recipe has been very popular with our family and friends, possibly because of how terrible and stupid it is- according to the boys. The funny thing is how easy it is to make, also making it ridiculous. This dessert is full of all kinds of fun descriptions, isn’t it??
Boston Creme Trifle
1 storebought pound cake (approx. 1 lb. 12 oz.)
2 small boxes instant vanilla pudding mix
3 cups milk
8 oz. frozen whipped topping
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 cup chocolate chips
In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk together pudding mix and milk until well combined. Place in refrigerator to set for 5 minutes. Crumble 1/3 pound cake into the bottom of a trifle dish. Remove pudding from refrigerator, gently stir in whipped topping. Spoon half of pudding on top of pound cake and repeat layering- there will be 3 layers of pound cake, 2 layers of pudding.
Place chocolate chips in a small mixing bowl. In a microwave safe dish, heat heavy cream for 45-60 seconds or until it starts to boil. Pour hot cream over chocolate chips, whisk together until chocolate is melted and smooth. Spread chocolate over top layer of pound cake. Cover dish with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator to set for at least 1 hour before serving.
