Create a sensory delight with our “cake-in-a-jar” ROLO® Trifle Jars recipe, a symphony of flavors and textures awaiting every spoonful. Picture this: Layers upon layers of rich chocolate cake with fluffy whipped cream and a salted caramel swirl drizzled throughout. Does it get any better than that? Top off your trifle jar recipe with fancy sprinkles, chocolatey ROLO® Candies and more to boost the mood of any gathering.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
To a large bowl, add all of the cake’s dry ingredients and whisk to combine.
To another bowl, add all of the cake’s wet ingredients (except the hot water, coffee or espresso) and whisk to combine.
Slowly mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until blended, adding the hot liquid at the very end. Mix well. Pour batter into a greased half-sheet pan, and bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean, set aside to cool.
Place all the caramel ingredients into a medium saucepan over medium heat until the butter is melted. Raise heat to medium high and bring to a boil for three minutes, without stirring. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Cut the cooled cake into 1 inch cubes.
Add the whipped cream ingredients to a large bowl and whisk vigorously until soft peaks form.
To serve, layer the cake, whipped cream, caramel, and chopped ROLO® Candies into a jar. Enjoy.
