Recipe by smiles4u
This was found on the recipe site of Dierberg's grocery store. A friend made it and said it was very good although did not come close to filling her trifle bowl. I made this for a co-worker's birthday, doubling the recipe, the doubled amount fit my trifle bowl perfectly. The dessert disappeared very quickly too!
