Death by chocolate can be made with tons of variations I am doing this version with raspberries and chocolate mint cookies..

This recipe fills a large punch bowl however I choose a large bowl and a medium size one to use for two celebrations on different nights. I baked two devils food cake boxed cake mixes, combined in one large pan that makes a nice high cake and tall slices. I mixed 2 packages of instant pudding, I used white soy milk just a personal choice..

Slice up the cake and layer the bottom of the bowl, filling the small places with smaller peices of cake.
Add a layer of chocolate pudding, and then I used thawed frozen rasberries as those are the birthday girls favorite berries, scoop them on juice and all..

Next a nice layer of dream whip which I allowed to soften in the fridge..
I crushed up some chocolate mint cookies adding a layer over the dream whip and then more cake..Followed by a nicely iced layer of cool whip.

I added fresh rasberries in a happy face, and all around the edge of the bowl.

The Birthday Girl Loved It!
To make this trifle you need two cakes mixes, two boxes of pudding following the directions on each. 2 tubs of cool whip, a container of frozen fruit some crushed up cookies or chocolate bar. The possiblities are endless!
