Oh. My. Heaven!
Today's recipe was chocolate strawberry trifle. We didn't even own a trifle bowl, but I've eyed trifles for years and have always wanted to make one, so now was the time to splurge and buy the silly bowl! :) (Cheaply though! $10 and Bed, Bath, Beyond and with a 40% coupon!)
The recipe I followed had the pinner making this in a punch bowl so I mostly halved her recipe and modified a tiny bit. LOVED IT!
Here's the scoop:
1 9inch cake (made two with one mix and then cut up the other to put in sandwich bags to have as treats for the beach tomorrow)
1 container strawberries, sliced
1 cup frosting
1 can strawberry pie filling
1 small container cool whip
Bake the cake and cut into 1 inch pieces. Place the frosting into microwavable bowl and heat 25 seconds, stir and heat another 25 seconds until pourable. Layer the bottom of the trifle bowl with half of the cake pieces. Pour half of the frosting on top. Layer half of the strawberries on top of that. And then half of the strawberry filling. Scoop half of the cool whip on top of the filling. Then repeat. Garnish with a couple extra strawberries on top if you like. EASY!
They ALL loved it! Not sure how I missed getting a picture of Olivia, but she was devouring it FAST! :)
And even Mr. Picky Eater thought it was finger licking good! :) We'll have leftovers for the next week!
