Chocolate Spider Trifle

Chocolate Spider Trifle - layers of chocolate cake, Oreo, chocolate mousse and cream - perfect for Halloween!

You guys ready for some fun Halloween recipes?!

We’ve been busy here in the Lil’ Luna kitchen cooking up all sorts of fun, festive and yummy concoctions. I’ve had so much fun, and am so happy that every recipe has turned out just as good or better than I imagined. Through out the year, I get my inspiration for many of these creations and I’m sure to take note of them (if I don’t I’d forget the next day!) Today’s recipe is one that I’ve been wanting to make for awhile. My family loved my Grasshopper Trifle so much that I decided to make a Halloween version that was just chocolate and involved some 8-legged friends. The result? A Chocolate Spider Trifle that was a huge hit! I admit our friends were a little surprised when I pulled out the Halloween dessert last month, but they also know I do things way in advance and weren’t too shocked. LOL!

The best part about this recipe is it can be enjoyed all year long. Just leave off the Hershey’s syrup web and spider and top with some crushed Oreos, and you’re set! This trifle is also great because it feeds a ton and is great for Halloween parties and events. If you’re all for simple and delicious chocolate desserts, this one is for you.

Here’s the recipe:

  1. I’m making this today for a halloween party – was wondering what size of cool whip? 8 oz or 16 oz? Thanks so much! Excited to have this!

  2. Just made this tonight for a halloween party with my 9-year old son. He loved making it with me & it was such an easy, festive dessert to make, and a big hit at the party. As I was leaving my 85 year old grandma asked me if i had left her any – don’t worry, Grandma, already had you covered!
