I would like to caution you all right now. If you are on a diet, or trying to loose weight stop reading now. But if your hungry keep reading! You may gain weight just looking at the pictures...Unless you like to drool on your computer then feel free. Brwhahahaha
But on with the weight gain and drooling!!!
Trifles anyone? I just love a good trifle, and that said I have three I'm gonna share tonight. Excited hu?!
What's in it? Simple. 1t vanilla, 1 t almond extract, 2pkg cream cheese, 1/4 c sugar. Beat these together. In another bowl whip 2 C whipping cream. Fold into cream cheese mixture. 1 qt fresh strawberries cut into chunks, 1 qt blueberries. Layer in pan or bowl. Keep in fridge.
What's in it? Simple. Make a chocolate cake. Let it cool, and the cut into chunks. 1 large pkg of instant chocolate pudding and make it ahead, 1 C whipping cream. Fold whipped cream into choc pudding. Cut up a bunch of Reese's Peanut Butter bars. Layer in a bowl. Keep in fridge.
What's in it? This one was a little more involved, like I said. I made a homemade Lemon Sour Cream Pound Cake. Yummy. Cool and cut into chunks. I only used half of the cake for this trifle and the other half is frozen. Then there is a homemade Lemon Curd. When that is cooled you add 2 C whipped cream. Cut up strawberries. I used a lot because I was asked by one of my kiddos to put extra in there, so I did! Layer in a bowl. Keep in fridge.
I for one think they look great. I'm not tooting my own horn here, I've made tons of different trifles the past few years and found they are great for a pot luck, family get together or what have you. My trifle bowl is actually the Pampered Chef one. I earned it free at one of my parties a few years ago, and I have gotten plenty of use from it too!! As you can see!
Have a great night all!!
