Easter trifle dessert – super quick!
I know these are crazy times and where ever you live I hope you are safe and surrounded by people you love. It can be hard celebrating holidays when you are in isolation. Especially when you live alone I can imagine these are terrible times.
A little sweet treat
And just to bring you a little sweet happiness I created this super simple and quick Easter dessert. This Easter trifle is really super simple to make and can be made mostly with staple ingredients. The fruits I used can be swapped with frozen if that’s what you have on hand.
While these chocolate bunnies look great you can use plain chocolate. It won’t matter a bit for the taste. We created these bunnies ourselves with a silicone mold and melted chocolate.
Easter trifle dessert
While I am calling this an Easter trifle dessert, you could very easily change this into a Christmas dessert or Valentines treat or whatever the occasion you want to celebrate! It’s super quick and easy to make.
I’ve used cake here to put at the bottom but if you don’t have that on hand you can substitute this for any kind of cookie you want. The vanilla custard is something I use store bought but you can make your own if you want too with this simple recipe for making a vanilla sauce. Just make it a bit thicker and you’ll have custard!
Kids will have a good time making this dessert themselves so it will be a fun activity to do to keep them busy while having to stay indoors.
The weather here is beautiful at the moment and I am so happy we have a garden to go into. If you don’t I hope you can safely go somewhere outside. Whatever your situation I hope you’re doing ok.
While I've used cake to crumble here you can use any kind of cookie you want.
- 2-3 slices cake crumbled
- 2 bananas sliced
- 1-2 cups vanilla custard ready made
- Fresh or frozen fruit of your choice
- caramel sauce
- Chocolate to decorate
Take four glasses and start with a small layer of caramel sauce at the bottom. Crumble the cake over this. Add the slices of banana, pour over some of the custard and end with the fruit.
If you have a high glass you can repeat the layers. If so repeat cake, banana and custard and end with the fruit again.
Serve with some extra caramel on top if you want.
