I just love a trifle at a party! Why? Well, they feed a crowd, can be made ahead of time and are customizable. My Wicked Zombie Trifle has layers of crumbled Devil’s Food (how fitting, right?) cake, strawberry pie filling, and a mixture of vanilla pudding and Cool-Whip. YUM!

The fun zombie part came from gummy fruit-flavored zombie hands from Treat Street USA. They added just the right touch of spooky. I added two down in the actual trifle and two emerging from the back as if escaping from the ground below.

The green pudding layer came compliments of green food coloring from Adam’s Extract. It added just the right amount of ooey effect I was hoping for.

My kids thought this dessert was super fun and they aren’t crazy about creepy decor, it was just the right amount of “scary”. Add in a few Halloween decorations and you have yourself the perfect dessert addition for Halloween parties. Enjoy and Happy Halloween friends!!!

Some tips for making a Wicked Zombie Trifle:

  • Use whatever flavor pie filling you’d like. Cherry or raspberry would be amazing too.
  • No Devil’s Food cake mix? Use a brownie mix.
  • Customize your pudding filling with other flavors, extracts or different colors.
