Very easy to make and a big hit with my husband and kids. I made it today to mark the 1st anniversary of the Duke & Duchess of Cambridge. (I'm British). The remaining gelatin is used when you repeat the layers. When you take the trifle back out of the fridge after 20 minutes, as it says in the directions, you repeat all the layers which means you spoon over the thickened gelatin like you did the first time. Hope that makes sense.
Haven't made it as of yet but plan on making it for a Hamburger B-B-Q/Homemade Ice Cream Back To School Bash our Church does every year for our community and teachers and faculty. I needed a sugar free dessert to take as I'm diabetic, this will work just fine. I, as well as monges and carriejc had wondered what you do with the left over gelatin that was left on the counter. Not sure anyone had responded to the question yet. Will post how it turns out at a later date. Looks "DELISH" !!
You can't go wrong with a Triffle...everthing about is sooooo good!!!!
It was really good. I would defiantly make this again.
I made this for my fam and they loved it. My husband ate it for 3 days. Not only was it fun to make, it is nutritious.
