Chocolate Strawberry Trifle

Hands down, this is one of my Husbands most favorite desserts!
Lucky for me it is very easy to make, looks really pretty all made up, and oh my tastes SO good.
Warning: This dessert makes A LOT.
That is why I almost always will make it if we are having company over, or bringing dessert for a get-together. Otherwise, I am afraid that My husband and I would eat more then we should.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Chocolate Strawberry Trifle

-moist chocolate cake mix
-1 can of already made chocolate frosting (not the whipped kind)
-6 cups of sliced strawberries
-13.5 oz of Strawberry Glaze (found in the produce department)
-Cool Whip topping

How to make:
1. Make the cake according to directions on the box. When the cake is done, cool completely. Cut the cake into about 8 big pieces.

2. Put the already made frosting in the microwave for about 40-45 seconds, until just melted.

3. In a mixing bowl combine the cut strawberries with the strawberry glaze.

4. In a Trifle bowl, or a big glass bowl start layering. As follows:
1st layer- 1/2 of the chocolate cake(no empty spaces, to make it fit you will have to cut a few pieces in different sizes)
2nd layer- pour 1/2 of the melted chocolate frosting on top of cake.
3rd layer-spread 1/2 of the strawberry mixture
4th layer- spread 1/2 of the cool whip topping
5th layer- the remainder of the chocolate cake pieces
6th layer-chocolate frosting
7th layer-strawberry mixture
8th layer- cool whip
You can garnish with fresh berries on top.

Store in the refrigerator until ready to Serve.
