Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent desert. This is an excellent desert. It is very tasty. I had never used jello in my trifles before but this made for an excellent change. Everyone that has tried it just loved it. I changed the jello to red and green for Christmas. It makes a nice touch. Enjoy... I know I did.

Everyone is always impressed with this dessert when they see it at first, and they like the taste, even when I use 'lite' whipped cream. But beware that as soon as you begin to serve it, it all jumbles together and loses a lot of its 'eye appeal.'
