Ratings & Reviews

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone is always impressed with this dessert when they see it at first, and they like the taste,... 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.'
