I recently made this trifle to take to a friend’s house for dinner. It was such an easy and instant success that I wasted no time in trying it again for our neighborhood Halloween potluck. Once again, people seemed to think it was pretty darn tasty so I, of course, had to share with you guys, my fellow peeps. After all, everyone should have a few crowd pleasers in their back pocket and this pretty lil’ thing is fool proof. I actually don’t have an official trifle dish, so I use this glass bowl and the final result is still vibrant and shows off the multiple layers.
Full directions and recipe below.
Not sure how to make your own whipped cream? All you do is pour heavy whipping cream into the mixer and mix on high for about 5 minutes. That’s it. Who knew homemade whipped cream was that simple?!
Another option if you are having company is to really wow the socks off your guests and serve mini-versions of this trifle in dessert glasses. I used fun cocktail glasses I received as a Christmas gift last year. It’s a little more time consuming to assemble but bringing these out on a tray is sure to receive some gasps of appreciation!
