My parents have always made trifle for New Year's! Here's the recipe I made last year. I'm looking forward to having it again for our New Year's Eve party on Monday. It is delicious!
2 small pkg strawberry jello (I used 1 large raspberry)
1 ½ cups boiling water
1 pint vanilla ice cream
3 large bananas, sliced
2 pkg raspberries with juice
2 pkg strawberries with juice (I just use a mixed frozen berries and they don’t have juice)
1 large angel food cake, broken into pieces
2 large pkg vanilla pudding
Dissolve jello in boiling water. While hot, stir in vanilla ice cream. Add bananas and fruit. Pour into punch bowl.
Place bowl in fridge and let the jello layer set up.
Meanwhile, prepare vanilla pudding according to package directions and place in fridge to cool.
When jello is set up and vanilla pudding is cool, layer the angel food cake pieces on top of the jello layer, pour the vanilla pudding on top of the cake. Return to the fridge and allow it to set up for 12 hours.
When ready to serve, top with whipped cream and sprinkles. Serves 25.
It doesn't really need 12 hours to set up. Once the layers are all together you could really serve it whenever you are ready. But if you think ahead you could prepare it in the morning and have it sit 12 hours during the day.
