Do you like playing games? Do you enjoy cooking? Do you like to occasionally have more than just soda pop and potato chips as snacks for game night? In this Monday blog series, game industry personalities will be sharing some of their favorite recipes for game night munchies. Welcome to Gaming Gastronomy! This week our dynamic dessert comes from Marty Connell of Rolling Dice & Taking Names.

Marty Connell (Facebook, Twitter, Web, YouTube) is one of the hosts of the Rolling Dice & Taking Names Gaming Podcast. As a long time gamer, Marty has learned one of the best ways to enhance a boardgame experience is to serve tasty and appropriate food. He has found that  the Chocolate Trifle is a popular dessert within all his game groups. It’s an easy and inexpensive dish to make that will serve up to 20 people.  While the Chocolate Trifle might not be the best dish to have around a gameboard, it is a great dessert to have between games or during your breaks. And can be altered to taste with different brownie mixes and crushed candy bars.

Chocolate Trifle Dessert


  • Trifle Bowl
  • Brownie mix
  • 2 chocolate instant pudding mixes
  • 2 8oz. Cool whip
  • 10 fun size Butterfingers
  • (You will need the ingredients to make the brownies and the pudding.)
