Malted Trifle

Here's the birthday boy as well as my beater licker.  Cute as can be!
My redhead just had his 12th birthday.  This is going way too fast!  Mr. Redhead shares his birthday with two different grandmas.  Jimmy's mom has the same birthday, as well as my grandma-great.  So April 15th may be tax day, but it is a day of celebration for us.  Jake loves this trifle every birthday.  This is the 3rd year running that he has asked for it as his birthday "cake".  The recipe was created out of a complete failure.  I was trying to make THIS cake for my redhead, and ended up with trifle instead.  I'm sure that never happens to anyone else:)  You know how it goes.  Actually how it doesn't go.  The cake is baked, assembly is started, and whoa bessy!  I've got a huge mess, and the cake can not be salvaged.  It's kind of like a bad hair day.  There's nothing you can do.  Your hair just looks like crap.  Even after trying it 3 different times, it's just not going to cooperate so you resign yourself to the fact that you won't look your best that day and you pray that you don't see anyone from High School:)   So if you have a bad cake day...........totally make trifle!  It may be any ugly cake in disguise, but it is a fantastic dessert.  Nobody needs to know you screwed up!

Malted Trifle

1 box chocolate cake mix made according to directions  (You can bake it in rounds or just a big sheet.  You're going to crumble the cake anyway.
1 large box chocolate pudding made according to directions
1 recipe Buttermilk Syrup or caramel ice cream topping
3 c. of whipped and sweetened cream
1 box of Whoppers or any other malted milk ball

I have a trifle bowl, but any pretty glass vessel will work.  You just want to see the layers.  The first layer crumble up one third of your cake.  Drizzle caramel or Buttermilk Syrup over the cake layer completely.  Next top the cake and caramel with the chocolate pudding.  Now a layer of crushed Whoppers.  Repeat this step two more times.  Let the trifle sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours, but longer is best.  Right before I serve the trifle I top it with the whipped cream.  It's delish!
