Tiramisu Trifle Recipe


This make-ahead dessert worked out great for a dinner party, at the house, this past weekend. It was easy to make, and the guests really enjoyed it! (I think the hardest part was trying to fit the trifle dish in my refrigerator, which required a bit of creativity.) Anyway, Tiramisu Trifle may cost a bit more than a box cake recipe, but it is so delicious and very rich in flavor. 

What are you waiting for? Go ahead and try this crowd pleaser!
