    I think you can search Trifle Recipes to get TONS of ideas.

    My Fav. is:
    "Death by Chocolate"

    2 box fudge brownie mix plus ingredients to make it (baked on Large Bar Pan)
    1 box chocolate INSTANT pudding
    1 tub whipped topping; unthawed
    1 chocolate bar (I use Aero; most use Heath/Skor)

    Layer brownies (that have been cooled) in bottom of Trifle bowl
    Spread a thin layer of pudding
    Followed by a layer of whipped topping
    Grate chocolate on top (I use the Deluxe Cheese Grater)
    Repeat layers

    :) YUM!

    Janet's Peanut Butter Cup Trifle
    Pumpkin Trifle
    Strawberry Creme Trifle

    I'm curious to try the Ho-Ho trifle that I found on here a while back, sometime. It looks so deliciously trashy.

    You can find all the recipes on here by searching the files.

    Capuccino Mousse is a must try! It's delicious - and I usually make it with Angel Food Cake to cut down on the fat. The Red, White and Blueberry is delicious too , but not right for this time of year.

    For my last 2 shows, I made the Gingerbread Pumpkin Trifle and booked 4 shows for December so they can get the trifle bowl for 60%off. I found the recipe on here - just went to files and typed in gingerbread. I made the gingerbread at home in the large bar pan the day beofre and just assembled it at the show. Make sure you have plenty of recipes handy for this one!;)

    Summer is over now (even here in North Florida) but the Tropical Dream Trifle is wonderful. It's an oldie but a goodie...

    Tropical Dream Trifle

    1 frozen prepared pound cake (10.75 ounces)
    1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
    1 lime
    1 large banana, chopped
    1 container (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed, divided
    1 container (8 ounces) sour cream
    1/2 cup powdered sugar
    1/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut, toasted
    1 kiwi, peeled and sliced

    Cut pound cake into 3/4-inch cubes; place in large bowl of 4-Piece Colander & Bowl Set. Add pineapple; toss gently and set aside.

    Zest lime using Microplane Adjustable Grater to measure 1 teaspoon zest. (Zest the entire lime if you love lime flavor.) Juice lime using Juicer to measure 1 tablespoon juice. Chop banana using Food Chopper. In Classic Batter Bowl, combine banana, lime juice and lime zest; mix well.

    Attach open star tip to Easy Accent(R) Decorator. Fill decorator with whipped topping; set aside. Add remaining whipped topping, sour cream and powdered sugar to banana mixture; mix well using Classic Scraper.

    To assemble trifle, place one-third of the cake cubes into bottom of Trifle Bowl. Top with one-third of filling mixture, spreading evenly. Repeat layers two more times. Sprinkle coconut over top of trifle. Pipe rosettes of reserved whipped topping around edge of bowl. Slice kiwi using Egg Slicer Plus(R). Cut slices in half and place between rosettes. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.

    I tried this at our NMD and am making it for my show tonight. It's a different version of the pumpkin trifle, and my favorite now. I've tried all of them that are on here too. Something about the nuts in this one just makes it so yummy. Also, it's pumpkin bread for the pumpkin taste, which I think is a little milder if you have a pumpkin non-lover in the crowd (as my dh is).

    Pumpkin Trifle
    Boxed Pumpkin bread and ingredients to make the bread
    1 - 16oz container of Cool Whip
    1 Cup skim milk
    1 small package of cheesecake pudding
    2 cups chopped pecans
    2 1/2 TBSP PC's Pantry Sweet Cinnamon Sprinkle

    In medium stainless steel mixing bowl, use small mix n' scraper to mix together bread mix and ingredients. Spread batter into parchment lined medium stoneware bar pan. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes cool completely.

    Using whisk, mix together milk and pudding until it begins to thicken. Use small mix n' scraper to fold in cool whip into pudding mixture and add sprinkle.

    Lift bread out of stone and place on cutting board. Cut pumpkin into bars and into small chunks using pizza cutter. Place chunks in trifle bowl to cover bottom. Top with 1/3 of pudding mixture then 1/3 of the nuts. repeat layers twice.

    I made the gingerbread one and people seemed to like it. My daughter thinks a chocolate one would've went over better. There's just some people who don't like pumpkin.

    I just made the Black Forest Trifle for the first time on Thursday. It was sooooo good. I love chocolate and cherry together and the almond extract was excellent, too. It was very pretty on display.
