A highlight of our annual family reunion is the dessert competition. The judges take their jobs very seriously! Last year's first-place winner was this tempting trifle.—Barb Hausey, Independence, Missouri
Even something as simple as a trifle can make an extraordinary ending to a holiday meal. It comes together quickly—and disappears even faster. You and your guests will love digging into layers of brownie, chocolate pudding, whipped topping, Snickers candy bars and caramel..—Adriane Louie, Jackson, Mississippi
Guests will think you slaved over this impressive-looking dessert shared by Karena Bauman of Minneapolis, Minnesota. "It's a snap to assemble," she assures. "Just layer cubes of leftover chocolate cake, a sweet cream cheese mixture and tart berries for winning results."
With pineapple, cherries and pudding, this creamy dessert from Angela Oelschlaeger of Tonganoxie, Kansas has lots of layers of flavor. It's inexpensive and impressive, and just right to take to a family or church gathering.
This decadent combination of pantry items is a terrific way to dress up a brownie mix. Try this trifle with other flavors of pudding or substitute your favorite candy bar. It tastes great with low-fat and sugar-free products, too. —Wendy Bennett, Sioux Falls, South Dakota
