Remember how we bought a house, gutted and remodeled it? If you don’t go check it out here! Anyways we are moved in and are still working on it and whenever we finally get the next step (siding) done I’ll be sure to update you, but that really has nothing to do with this recipe so onward and forwards to the story.

We moved to this new, amazing neighborhood which I absolutely adore, except for the cops coming to visit because someone called us in for not watering our dog, which we do. Trust me. I love my pup. She just is a pup and knocked her water over. Nosy people.

Anyways. Enough with that tangent.

Back to the wonderful neighborhood. Our next door neighbors had a neighborhood potluck and it was tons of fun to get to meet everyone, which I knew a lot of the people, but it was still fun. This trifle was the star at the party and I’m sad to say that I didn’t bring it.

In fact it was so good that one of the neighbor boys took a bite, looked up at me with sparkling eyes and said, “Julie did you make this?!” I had to tell him no I didn’t. I could only wish I could claim this one as mine.

It’s amazing. It’s sinful. It’s delicious.

Please go find an excuse to make this. Like oh hey guess what? It’s only 156 days to my birthday so I need this. Stat. It is that delicious!

  • Ben Berry

    OMG this sounded GREAT! My recommendation- SKIP IT!!!!! Unless you plan on having enough guests to eat this unbelievably rich desert in one evening, just make brownies and leave a bowl of Reese peanut butter cups out! It turns to ABSOLUTE MUSH after 12 hours, with zero taste but for the peanut butter cups, which are ruined by the gritty paste quality of EVERYTHING else! sooooooo let down!!!!
