Better than Sex trifle recipe

Everyone has their version of this dessert, and this actually comes from my sister, it’s one of her family’s favorite desserts! And it’s so easy to make ahead it’s great for when you’ll be having lots of company over, or going to a party and bringing a treat.

this "better than sex" trifle is a delicious make ahead dessert that everyone loves

Rather than just make cake this trifles layers all the goopy goodness and ends up SO moist and delicious. My sisters version just uses cool whip, but I like making my own whipped cream. BUT you want to be able to make it a day ahead and not totally dissolve, so STABILIZED whipped cream!

    I use Mrs. Richardson’s butterscotch caramel in a jar & lots of pecan chips with Heath chips with chocolate. It’s amazing!!!

    I LOVE better than sex cake, it’s SO good so I have no doubt this is amazing too! Btw, it totally cracked me up that when I say the direct link to this (I found you via Pinterest) the url extension is “sex trifle..” Yes, I know that sounds totally immature, but can you imagine if you dropped the “better than” part of the recipe name?

      ha! I have a plug in that get’s rid of “unnecessary words” poor choice this time around, I should have double checked it!

        That’s even more hilarious that a plug in took out “unnecessary words” and you ended up with that. Again, yes I know I sound totally immature, I just can’t help it sometimes! lol
