Heavenly White Chocolate and Berry Trifle

Last year, my son-in-law's mother (Mary) came to our home for dinner and she brought this HEAVENLY dessert that she just made up. It was SO good - and I have made it for many a party since then. It is perfect in the Spring when the fresh berries are available and oh so good. If you have a trifle bowl, it is really pretty, showing all the yummy layers.

Cut the white cake into cubes. I found it really easy to do by dumping the cake onto a cutting board and using an electric knife. Put half the cake, cut up, into the bottom of the bowl.

Mix the pudding and milk for 2 minutes, then pour over the cake, letting the pudding soak into the cake.


Next, add a layer of cool whip and top with fresh berries, being sure to tuck some against the side of the glass bowl so that it looks pretty!




Add a layer of shaved white chocolate. I used a vegetable peeler and it seems to work great.




Repeat the layers and end with the fresh berries. It makes more than will fit into my trifle bowl, so I make another dish full. All the more to enjoy!!!
