Napoleon Trifle

Mr. Food

Our motto is "never give up!" and when our Napoleon pastry broke apart, we turned it into a luscious layered Napoleon Trifle. Shhh...no one has to know, and is it ever easy!

Serves: 10

Preparation Time: 10 min

Chilling Time: 2 hr

Cooking Time: 10 min

Ingredients
  • 1 (17-1/4-ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 (4-serving) package instant vanilla pudding and pie filling
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 (12-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed (see Tip)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate flavor syrup
Instructions
  1. Unfold puff pastry and place each sheet on a baking sheet. Bake according to package directions, until golden. Allow pastry to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk pudding mix and milk until thickened. Stir in half of the whipped topping until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Break cooled pastry into large pieces and place one-third of them in the bottom of a trifle dish or large glass bowl. Spoon half of the pudding mixture over that and drizzle with one-third of the chocolate syrup. Repeat the layers then top with the remaining pastry pieces, the remaining whipped topping, and the remaining chocolate syrup.
