Red Velvet White Chocolate Trifle

Last weekend was my husband’s birthday and I had planned a dinner party at our home and invited some great friends to come over and help us celebrate. I had originally planned on making my husband a layered red velvet birthday cake, however he remembered that I had previously made a Birthday Cake Trifle and said that he would actually like a trifle instead of a cake. Well that was certainly okay by me! Don’t know why I hadn’t thought of it first! Duh!

Let me tell you right up front that this recipe is NOT gluten free, however I am providing a gluten free recipe and a great homemade gluten free red velvet cake recipe link at the bottom of this post. 

Okay, let’s begin.

This particular trifle requires only a few ingredients: a red velvet cake mix  + white chocolate instant pudding + whipped topping +  mini Oreo cookies and a white chocolate candybar. I personally use a three quart Anchor Hocking Presence Trifle Bowl for my trifles and I just love it. This particular size trifle bowl easily serves 12 people; one serving each.

First of all, make the red velvet cake according to the box directions. Bake and cool completely, then cut it into serving sizes. l did not use the whole cake in this trifle, so I froze the remaining cake and will make quick individual parfaits at a later time.

Now comes the fun part… assembling the trifle! Crumble several of the squares of cake in the bottom of your trifle bowl. Next, carefully spoon some of the creamy pudding mixture on top of the red velvet cake crumbles.  Make the layers approximately 2 inches high.

Sprinkle half a bag of mini Oreo’s on top of the creamy pudding layer.

This trifle would be perfect for just about any occasion. The red and white colors would work well for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, an anniversary, bridal or baby shower, or in my case… a birthday party!
