Weekending and Twix Trifle

How was your weekend?
Mine was great.  I love weekends with no big plans.
The only thing on our calendar was a high school athletic banquet on Sunday evening.

We have lots of trees on our cul-de-sac.
We spent hours raking leaves and we still have a long way to go.

I took a break from raking to look at these.

I love magazines.
Especially food magazines.
I could look at them for hours.

I picked up some bagels for us for breakfast on Sunday morning.
We have a fantasic bagel shop called Mr. J's.  Their bagels are so good.

I saved mine for lunch and made a turkey sandwich.

I used the bagel run as an excuse to stop for my Sheetz Diet Coke.
Sad, but true.

I made a Twix Trifle for the athletic banquet. 
This is my go-to dessert when I want to make something quick and easy.
The bowl always comes back empty :)

Well I've got to go now. 
Desperate Housewives is calling my name.
Hope you enjoyed a glimpse into my weekend.
Have a great week!!

Twix Trifle

1/2 of a prepared Devil's Food Chocolate Sheet Cake
(I bake a cake in a 9 x 13 inch pan and freeze the other half to make another trifle later)
1 large box of Jell-O Instant Chocolate Pudding
3 cups milk (I used 2%)
8 oz. container of Cool Whip
8 Fun Size Twix Bars

Bake cake as directed in a 9 x 13 inch pan. Cool cake completely.
Mix pudding and milk with a whisk for 2 minutes; set aside.
Crumble 1/4 of the cake on the bottom of your trifle bowl. Next layer half of the pudding onto the cake. Spread half of the cool whip over the pudding and top with four Twix bars sliced into chunks.
Follow with another layer of crumbled cake, pudding, cool whip and twix bars
Since you only use half of the cake, you can freeze the other half to make this again another day or you can just grab a fork and dig in like I do most of the time. Enjoy!


  1. I am loving this recipe. I love the freezing half the sheet cake too. Brilliant!! I am on magazine overload right now. Too many ideas I want to try!!

  2. Yum! Twix is by far my fave chocolate bar! So good...i will have to try this soon!!
    Cant get over how many leaves you raked up! I bet this season keeps you busy! :D
