Trifle For A Trifle

Submitted by:
In one of those last-minute recipe decisions, I threw this together. It costs almost nothing, and even though I always thought trifles were easy and therefore cheating, it's actually not bad.

1 pk. chocolate pudding (if you're in England, Angel Delight is probably the closest thing, but I've never used it and can't actually vouch for it)

2 c. milk (for making the pudding)

whipping cream- as much as you like

icing sugar- about 3 T.

5 pks. vanilla & raspberry cake rolls (you can get these at Sainsbury for 30p. a pk of 8)

about 10 bourbon creams (or other chocolate sandwich cookie), chopped


Make the pudding- it doesn't matter if you use instant or cooked. Either way, let it cool and/or set up.

Meanwhile, cut the cake rolls into slices. (For those of you not in England, they're basically little sponge cake rolls with vanilla cream and raspberry jelly inside. You could use something else, like plain sponge cake, but the raspberry is really nice.) Put in the bottom of a bowl.

Whip the cream with the powdered sugar until it's stiff, but not butter.

Layer the pudding on top of the cake, then put the whipped cream over top. You can do this layering a couple times if you want, or just once. Then put the chopped chocolate cookies on top.
