Last week, I shared a recipe for chocolate chip pound cake with hot fudge frosting.  It’s so good, I’ve made it four times in the past two months, which is saying a lot for a pound cake.  Once carved into a double decker bus cake, once as a sheet cake, and now twice for this Chocolate Chip Strawberry Trifle.

My dog is actually the one to thank for this trifle.  The day before she ate half a lemon lavender bundt cake, she knocked one of my photography lights into the freshly-baked chocolate chip pound cake.  Unable to serve it as is, I cut the pound cake into cubes and stashed them away in the freezer.

A few weeks later we were invited to a Mother’s Day gathering with family friends.  My husband remembered the bag of chocolate chip pound cake in the freezer and suggested I use it to make a trifle.

And thus, chocolate chip strawberry trifle was born.
