5 Minute Toffee Butterscotch Trifle and More Amazing Holiday Treats


Disclosure review
We are more than half way to the holidays and I’m starting to feel the crunch. Are you? It seems like there is a party almost every night and everyone has asked me to bring dessert!

I don’t know if you’re like me, but I love to push the easy button and create awesome treats. This 5 Minute Butterscotch Toffee Trifle has been a hit both at a company Christmas in a large bowl and as a single serving at home (my husband can’t get enough of it). I’m including the recipe for a single serving, but if you want to make it for a large crowd, just multiply everything by four.

5 Minute Toffee Butterscotch Trifle Ingredients

  • 1 Sarah Lee Crumb Cake
  • 1 ready to eat butterscotch pudding cup
  • 1 tablespoon butterscotch caramel sauce (if you can’t find this in your local store, plain caramel also works)
  • 2 heaping tablespoons of whipped cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped toffee pieces

This recipe for 5 Minute Toffee Butterscotch Trifle was inspired by this Sara Lee recipe for Brownie Chocolate Chip Cake Jar. The Sara Lee Snacks Brownie Chocolate Chip Cake Jar features the Brownie Chocolate Chip cakes, put together with whipped cream, chocolate pudding and hot fudge. This easy “how-to” is the perfect treat for home and will be a hit for all of those holiday parties!


The Entenmann’s Dreamy Chocolate Bars feature the Entenmann’s classic Rich Frosted Donut. This cake-style donut is drenched in rich, wonderfully smooth chocolate. Bite into one, hear the crack of the Rich Frosted shell and enjoy the soft yellow cake interior. Baked into a delicious chocolate bar, the Entenmann’s Rich Frosted donut is mixed together with flaked coconut, caramel popcorn vand a few other ingredients, guaranteed to be a delicious delight your family will enjoy.



The Entenmann’s name has stood for the finest quality in baked goods and that same commitment extends to the Entenmann’s single serve coffee selections. Working with the finest coffee growers around the world, selecting only 100% Arabica beans and roasting them into small batches ensures consistent quality coffee with every roast. Packaged immediately after roasting to lock in freshness, Entenmann’s coffee cups, available in classic and dessert flavors, are great for Holiday entertaining and were created to be the perfect complement to Entenmann’s baked foods or savored on their own any time of day.

  1. Toffee and Butterscotch are two of my favorite flavors so this sounds absolutely delicious! Thank-you for this tasty recipe. 🙂

  2. I am SO making this later today. It’s 5am now and of course it looks amazing and now I’m craving it. I love how easy it is. I hardly have any extra time and I’m a terrible cook. Awesome recipe and just what I need to de-stress and impress guests.

    My husband Always want me to make butterscotch pudding & he’s the only one that really eats it. I bet he would love this & the rest of us too!I’m going to give it a try so thank you for the new recipe! It looks delicious. 🙂

  4. The Trifle looks delicious and it’s a little different from the usual cake, brownies or cookies. Thanks for sharing, maybe I will bring this on Christmas day, sounds easy enough.

  5. As much as I love Sara Lee and Entenmann’s snacks, it wouldn’t occur to me to use them as the base for something else. Love the idea of making them into a trifle! Thanks for the inspiration.

  6. That looks really good – I stocked up when I went to my sisters this summer, they don’t have a very limited selection here, when they have Entenmann’s at all. They don’t have that funny processed snack taste that a lot of the sweets do and I love them.

  7. Butterscotch Trifle sounds wonderful an so easy when you use a precooked Entermanns crumb cake, Ilove things that we can improvise on and this sounds wonderful, thank you for sharing

  8. Geez, I guess I missed this post back in December when you first posted it. Anyway, I’m glad I saw it now. It wouldn’t occur to me to take something like a store-bought crumb cake and turn it into something even more yummy–I usually just slice and eat them. You’ve opened my eyes to a world of possibilities. 🙂
