  • Yield: 12 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)

Ingredients

  • 1 (8-ounce) package chocolate sugar-free, low-fat cake mix (such as Sweet 'N Low)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 (1-ounce) package chocolate sugar-free, fat-free instant pudding mix
  • 2 cups fat-free milk

  • 2 or 3 drops of red food coloring
  • 2 cups fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Sugar-free chocolate curls (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 375°.

Prepare cake mix according to package directions, using 3/4 cup water. Let cake cool in pan; remove from pan, and cut into cubes.

Prepare pudding mix according to package directions, using 2 cups fat-free milk; chill at least 30 minutes.

Thaw cherries, reserving 1/4 cup juice. Combine cherries, juice, and food coloring.

Place half of cake cubes in a 3-quart trifle bowl. Spoon half of cherries over cake; spread 1 cup pudding over cherries, and top with half of whipped topping. Repeat layers. Garnish with chocolate curls, if desired (chocolate curls not included in analysis). Cover and chill at least 8 hours.
