I like eggnog, but didn't care a lot for this. A little too sweet for me.

This recipe is delicious. I added some fresh whole raspberries instead of the cherries, and some crushed ginger snap cookies on the top for a little crunch.

I served this to my guests and most of it went down the disposal. Nobody liked this, especially the jam in this trifle. Not a good choice. Skip this one.

I have been making this for 3 years now and every time I take it anywhere the bowl comes home empty. I always have requests..love it!

This trifle is just Delish in every way, the flavour of the eggnog is right through. Unfortunetly, we only get eggnog at Christmas time in Australia, but it will be worth waiting, to make it again next year
