I have been on a candy making binge this Christmas season, and for the most part I have been very successful. However, one fudge recipe didn't set properly and so I couldn't give it away as gifts. So, instead I decided to use the delicious fudge and make a trifle!

Here's a mini-tute, in case you want to try it:
It was time consuming but not that difficult, since the fudge was already made:

FUDGE
 
1 (12 oz.) pkg. butterscotch pieces**
1 (14 oz.) can condensed milk
1 1/2 c. tiny marshmallows
2/3 c. chunk style peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. chopped peanuts
In saucepan, combine butterscotch pieces, milk, and marshmallows. Melt and remove from heat. Beat in peanut butter, vanilla, and dash of salt. Stir in nuts. Pour in buttered 9 x 9 x 2 inch pan. Chill and cut in squares. Makes 4 dozen. Store in refrigerator.

**To make the fudge "not work", use semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of butterscotch
Let it set in the fridge overnight.Then, bake a cake (I just used a french vanilla box cake) in two parts. Use the first part as the bottom and then spread the fudge over it. Now, this won't look pretty. The cake will probably fall apart and the fudge won't spread well. That is okay  Wink
Then the next layer of cake, then the toppings! I used fresh whipped cream and frozen strawberries (strawberries are not in season this time of year, so I had to make do, although fresh of course would be better) and spread it evenly and thickly over the top.
I did this in a cake pan, but you can also do it in a bowl for the more appropriate "trifle effect".

(You can sort of see my son in the background, with his little fingers waiting to dip in the whipped cream!)

This dessert is awesome. Expensive and time consuming, but awesome. I highly recommend it for a party or get together as it's rich, tasty, and will feed a lot of people.
Enjoy!
