"Very easy. I have used a variety of fruit & jello for variety."

"Although this recipe was delicious, I HIGHLY DISAGREE with the portions it states it will feed. I would say to cut them in HALF! Otherwise, enjoy!"

"Super easy and a big hit! I used regular jello instead of sugar-free. This is a keeper!!!"

"The concept is amazing! Love the jello and cherry flavor :) My trifle bowl must be a little big, though, and this recipe didn't fill it up all the way. I'll probably just add a couple more layers next time :) Very yummy! My dad said I could make it for him anytime!"
