It’s most tasty when it’s still cold. The nutella is still firm and gives it a bit of crunch. Oh, nutella!

The hubs could not stop eating this thing. I would go bed and wake up in the morning with dirty dishes in the sink the next morning with the smallest remnants remaining. He confessed that it was just so good he turned around half way up the stairs to bed and went and had some more. Multiple nights. I was finding plates all over the place.

Not only was I thrilled that he liked it so much, but I was also relieved that he ate more of a dessert than I did for once. I need the help!

And it is so easy to put together. Everything’s pretty much made, you just have to layer it all and throw it in the fridge to firm up. The hardest part is actually waiting for it to get firm before devouring it. But go ahead and try, I dare you. ๐Ÿ™‚

This Caramel Macchiato Tiramisu Trifle is made with layers of ladyfingers, butterscotch putting and caramel sauce, espresso and Nutella! An easy trifle and amazing flavor combination!


  • 1 8-oz container of Cool Whip
  • 2 1/2 tbsp instant expresso granules
  • 1 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 3.4-oz packet butterscotch instant pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 jar of Nutella
  • 2 3-oz packages of lady fingers
  • 1 cup caramel sundae syrup


1. Dissolve espresso in water. Let it cool.
2. Whisk pudding and milk together and set aside.
3. Place a layer of lady fingers in bottom of trifle dish.
4. Spread thin layer of nutella over lady fingers.
5. Drizzle with 5 tbsp espresso.
6. Mix half of the cool whip into the butterscotch pudding.
7. Spread about 1/4 of the pudding mixture over the ladyfingers. Drizzle with about 1/4 of the caramel syrup.
8. Repeat the layers. I was able to get 4 layers.
9. Top with remaining cool whip and a drizzle of caramel sauce.


I recently made this using one angel food cake broken into layers in place of the lady fingers when I couldn’t find them in the bakery. It worked well as an alternative.

    Not sure if you still read the comments. I live in Australia and could not find butterscotch pudding. Any ideas for alternative?
    Thank you

  2. Joy Williams

    Think some butterscotch Schnapps would be good over this? Also, I don’t do Cool Whip, so whipped cream would suffice, I think. (it’s better anyway).

    Hi. Do you think this would work with pound cake? I don’t think our store carries Lady Fingers nor Angel Cake; we are located overseas ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks


      Hi Kellie! I think pound cake would work. I’ve actually thought about trying that too ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Kellie

        Thanks so much for the prompt response! I’ve found a couple recipes for homemade lady fingers, so I’m still pondering on which one I will try ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll let you know how the pound cake turns out, if I do try it!!

    Any suggestions for an alternative to using the expresso granules? This looks great but I am not a coffee drinker and do not even like the coffee taste in my dessert.


      Do you like chocolate? You could replace the espresso granules with cocoa powder. I bet that’d be yummy!

    This looks fantastic! Tiramisu is one of my favorite desserts and I love that this uses Nutella!


      Thanks Melanie! This is one of my family’s favorites – requested regularly! It is SO good and the Nutella is my favorite part! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi there! Do you have to make the butterscotch pudding prior to adding the cool whip or do u just add cool whip to the pudding poweder?
