Here it is... post #150! The time sure does fly! Since it is finally spring here in Pac NW, it is time for spring recipes using berries that will be in season shortly here. Usually our strawberry season is June.. that is it, just the month of June and I am looking forward to it (unless you live anywhere it is warm and have local strawberries year round, but here in Olympia WA, our season is just June). Local strawberries, what could be better for yummy warm weather treats. This dessert is wonderful on a warm day, with the mix of chocolate and strawberries it is sure to become a family favorite!
Choco-Berry Trifle Parfait
1 loaf of poundcake, cubed (you can use a store bought cake or make your own)
Strawberries; hulled, washed, and sliced
1/2 cup sugar
prepared chocolate pudding
Cube up the poundcake. Wash, hull, and slice strawberries; add sugar and mix. Prepare the pudding according to package directions. Whip the whipping cream (if you have used heavy whipping cream instead of aerosol whipped cream)
Layer dessert glasses with poundcake on bottom, then pudding, then stawberries, then whipped cream. Repeat until glass is full. Whipped cream on top and garnish with a strawberry and maybe some chocolate shavings if desired.
Enjoy! Repeat directions above if still hungry!
