Looking for an easy red, white and blue dessert for the weekend? Try this mason jar trifle dessert. And the bonus is, there is chocolate too! It’s kind of a really simplified trifle. And, that’s an English dessert that can actually take quite a bit of time to put together. I enjoy making it since it’s a traditional dish from my husband’s family. And, my Father-In-Law showed me how to make it. But, he never made it in mason jars. It was always made in a traditional trifle bowl.
BUT, this tastes just as good and is ten times easier! Plus, serve it in a mason jar and it looks super cute and you have easy to grab individual portions.
Whipped cream (homemade, from a can or a Cool Whip type product)
Cake pieces (yellow cake or angel cake – made from a mix or store bought)
