Tiny Tim Trifle

 Tiny Tim Trifle
After receiving a trifle dish for Mother's Day, Julie Williquette of Hartselle, Alabama created this pretty dessert. "Made with sugar-free instant chocolate pudding and fat-free frozen whipped topping, it's easier on the waistline," Julie notes. "My chocoholic husband loves it so much that I usually serve it on Father's Day, too."
