Chocolate Cherry Trifle

  • 1 pkg. (16 oz., 8-count) Hostess® Suzy Q’s®
  • 1 packet Chocolate Covered Cherry Dip Mix
  • 2 cups cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup confectioners’ powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. almond or vanilla extract
  • 1 container (16 oz.) Cool Whip®, thawed, divided
  • 2 pkgs. (3.9 oz. ea.) instant chocolate pudding*
  • 2-3/4 cups cold milk
  • Shaved chocolate and/or maraschino cherries for garnish
  • Large glass trifle bowl (min. 10” diameter) or 13x9” baking dish

Slice Suzy Q’s® in half lengthwise and place in upright position around inside perimeter of bowl. Using mixer, blend 1 cup sour cream and Chocolate Covered Cherry Dip Mix. After well blended, fold in 3 cups of Cool Whip® until blended and spread mixture in bottom of bowl. Using mixer, blend remaining 1 cup cream cheese, confectioners’ powdered sugar and almond extract until smooth, then fold in 2 cups Cool Whip®. Spread evenly over Chocolate Covered Cherry layer. Combine pudding mixes and milk. Whisk for 2 minutes and then pour into trifle bowl over other layers. Pudding mixture will seep down in between Suzy Q’s®. Gently jiggle bowl to help pudding settle. Cover and refrigerate several hours or until set. Top with remaining Cool Whip® and garnish with shaved chocolate and maraschino cherries. *May substitute vanilla pudding if desired. Makes 9 to 12 servings.
