Being this awesome can be a burden

"The Gang" is all together this weekend so since the group includes some big guys and 3 preggos, I decided to make an indulgent dessert.
I borrowed my new friend Hilary's Pampered Chef Trifle Bowl (thanks Hil!) and concocted an easy but fancy dish.
I used a boxed devil's food cake mix and threw in some chocolate chips. To cut down on the fat and sugar (haha), I used ff/sf vanilla pudding and light whipped cream. So cake on the bottom layer then pudding then whipped cream. Then in the food processor I chopped up some Thin Mints that were in the freezer and then sprinkled that on top of the whipped cream. And then repeated the layers.
I only used 2/3rds of the cake because that was all the layers I could fit in there. I wish it was a little prettier but who cares what it looks like when it tastes that good.
So right now it is chilling in the fridge and in a few hours, hopefully, we will all be enjoying it.
We don't get together that often so we are celebrating and eating well.
