I made these trifles in square acrylic boxes with lids made by Simcha Collection. BP Print Group made a 1¾-inch label that was a perfect fit for the top of the box. The chocolate cream cheese nestled between the chocolate cake takes these trifles from delicious to divine!

    or your favorite chocolate cake recipe
