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.
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!
Better than Sex trifle recipe
- 1 chocolate cake baked and cooled Devils Food Cake is a good flavor option if you like box mixes
- 16 oz Stabilized whipped cream or cool whip
- 1 1/2 C caramel sauce or jar of store bought caramel sauce
- 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
- 5-6 skor bars/ heath bars chopped
- Cut the cake into 1 inch sections. Place half on the bottom of your trifle dish.
- Then pour half the can of sweet and condensed milk across the top, then half the caramel, then sprinkle with skor pieces, finish with half the whipped cream.
- Repeat the cake/milk/caramel/skor/cream layer
- Sprinkle the top with MORE skor bars (and a decorative whipped cream border).
- NOW let the trifle sit 8 hours or over night in the fridge! This will let everything set and get extra goopy!
Serve and enjoy!!! What do you think? Do you have a favorite “better than sex” recipe?

I make this exact recipe but always use Resse’s Peanut Butter Cups! And it always receives rave reviews!
that sounds fantastic!
What is the mixer you use. It’s so different looking.
it’s a bosch universal mixer http://bit.ly/Ilovemybosch
This looks delicious however, does the pretty whipped cream hold up sitting in the refrigerator after all those hours?
Can’t wait to try this out, possibly for one of our Ladies Supper Club night!!!
that’s why I stabilize the whipped cream
I am definitely going to try this! My aunt has a recipe for Better than sex cake, I have never made, but you have just inspired me.
Hi Ashlee Marie, this trifle is like death by chocolate! I am going to “save” the recipe, if my husband sees this on the emails, he will wish me to put this together right now! I really would love to make this a bit later, perhaps give them a good treat for Easter, the Easter weekend is 4 days!! I am so trying to loose weight, how can I with such deliciousness floating around? Thanks for sharing, I will make this according to your recipe. Looking forward to also show off a bit, yikes, I need a trifle glass dish!!
I make this with a yellow cake, drizzle with cold coffee, cover with chocolate pudding, cover with whipped cream a d sprinkle with crushed heath bars, and repeat! It’s delicious!
Haha don’t you just love it when people just look at the time and don’t actually read the recipe then comment on things they have no idea about because ….THEY DIDN’T READ THE RECIPE!! Geez. Anyway, I did make something like this recipe but used brownies w/walnuts, beat cheese with the cool whip and powdered sugar and layered it like the recipe using the caramel and condensed milk….didn’t let it set but an hour in the fridge before serving…oh and I added butterfinger bits with the heath bits….totally divine! Big hit at the party….nothing left!
OMG….made this for a bbq and my guest LOVED it!,!!
looks heavenly! any suggestions for a spooky Halloween adult party version??
so sorry to get betting back to you late- you can color the caramel sauce red, it makes a gooey thick “blood”. You can dye the whipped cream tan and pipe the tip into a “brain” then add a drizzle of “blood” over it.
I just made your recipe looks fsntastic,I am wondering if I made it to early.It will set in the fridge overnight and will not be eaten to the following evening. will it be ok?
