Heaven in a Bowl Recipe

“Heaven in a Bowl” is a term often used to describe decadent desserts or rich dishes that are incredibly satisfying and indulgent. While there isn’t a specific recipe called “Heaven in a Bowl,” I can suggest a recipe for a dessert that might fit the bill: Chocolate Trifle.

Here’s a simple recipe for a Chocolate Trifle that could be considered “Heaven in a Bowl”:


– 1 package chocolate cake mix (plus ingredients needed to prepare the cake)
– 2 packages (3.4 oz each) instant chocolate pudding mix
– 4 cups cold milk
– 2 cups heavy cream
– 1/4 cup powdered sugar
– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
– Chocolate shavings or curls, for garnish (optional)


1. Prepare the chocolate cake according to the package instructions. Let it cool completely, then cut it into small cubes.

2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the instant chocolate pudding mixes and cold milk until thickened. Place it in the refrigerator to chill and set.

3. In another mixing bowl, whip the heavy cream with powdered sugar and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.

4. To assemble the trifle, layer half of the chocolate cake cubes in the bottom of a large glass trifle bowl or individual serving glasses.

5. Spoon half of the prepared chocolate pudding over the cake layer, spreading it out evenly.

6. Dollop half of the whipped cream over the pudding layer and spread it out evenly.

7. Repeat the layers with the remaining cake cubes, pudding, and whipped cream.

8. If desired, garnish the top of the trifle with chocolate shavings or curls for an elegant touch.

9. Cover the trifle and refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours, or overnight, to allow the flavors to meld together and the dessert to chill.

10. Serve the Chocolate Trifle chilled, scooping out individual servings into bowls.

This Chocolate Trifle is rich, creamy, and chocolatey, making it a heavenly dessert that’s sure to impress your guests. Feel free to customize it by adding layers of caramel or toffee sauce, chopped nuts, or fresh berries for extra flavor and texture. Enjoy this indulgent treat as a special dessert for any occasion!
