Individual Red White and Blue Trifles for #SundaySupper

Today is a very exciting day, for two reasons. One, because it's my birthday! And two, because I'm participating in my very first #SundaySupper post! I am so honored to be a part of the Sunday Supper Movement and their mission to bring back Sunday Supper Around the Family Table.

As if there weren't enough reasons to celebrate, this week is also the 4th of July! I absolutely love this time of year. The weather is warm hot, grilling season is in full swing, and there's a party to go to every weekend! What's not to love? Not to mention all of the delicious desserts that summer has to offer. Like these Individual Red White and Blue Trifles....






Decadent white chocolate cream is draped over layers of angel food cake, fresh strawberries, and fresh blueberries to create this mouth watering 4th of July treat. And in individual jars these treats are perfect to wrap up and transport to your next family gathering.





They almost look too cute to eat.




...I said almost

Makes about 12 pint size jars
Ingredients:

1 angel food pound cake, cut into small cubes
2 pints strawberries, chopped
2 pints blueberries

White Chocolate Cream Filling:

1 1/2 package white chocolate instant pudding mix
1 cup milk
1 cup white chocolate chips, melted and slightly cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
16 oz. frozen whipped topping, thawed

Directions:

In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat milk and pudding mix at medium-high speed for 2 minutes. Add melted white chocolate and vanilla, beating to combine. Let stand for 2 minutes. Fold in whipped topping.

To assemble the trifles, spoon in a layer of cream filling, a layer of cake cubes, fresh chopped strawberries, more filling, blueberries, more filling and add a garnish of a few berries to the top.

Wrap with ribbon and tie a plastic spoon into the ribbon. Put on the lids and they're ready to go!
