You simply can’t get any easier than this and … it’s absolutely delicious! My Red, White and Blue Trifle only has four basic ingredients. And it has an awesome “wow” factor! It looks so pretty when you bring it to the table. Everyone will think you worked for hours. :)

For an extra special presentation on the Fourth of July, you can top the trifle with sparkler candles. You can find these in the bakery department of your grocery store or at a craft store. They are very tall, skinny candles that give off subtle sparks when you light them! Do NOT, however, try to use regular Fourth of July sparklers. They make a huge mess and will ruin your dessert!

OK – here’s the recipe. I hope you enjoy making it as much as you do serving and eating it!

*Assorted berries (I buy a package each of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries)
*1/3 cup of sugar
*Angel Food Cake (Make from scratch, from a box, or purchase a ready-made angel food cake from your grocery store)
*Two 8 oz. containers of Cool Whip, thawed* (see note below)

If using strawberries, set one aside to use as garnish then remove the green leaves and slice the remaining berries into a large mixing bowl. Add the other berries and the sugar and mix to combine. Set aside so the berries and sugar start making some juice. This will only take about 30 minutes.

Tear the angel food cake into chunks (about the size of golf balls).

In a pretty glass bowl or trifle dish, layer as follows:

1/3 of the Angel Food Cake
1/3 of the Berries
1/3 of the Cool Whip

Repeat two more times so that you have three layers. Garnish with a whole strawberry or a few scattered berries.

*TIP: When you purchase Cool Whip it will be frozen. Let it sit in the refrigerator overnight to thaw. DO NOT try to thaw Cool Whip in the microwave. Trust me … it will make a horrible mess and the Cool Whip will melt, not thaw. It will be unusable.
