Pop Tart Trifle

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Christmas Carol

When you think of a trifle, you may think of a fancy and elegant dessert. I got this recipe quite a few years ago from a "sample lady" at the supermarket. Though she made it with strawberry Pop Tarts and strawberries, you could use blueberry Pop Tarts and blueberries for variation. This is a fun trifle- one for the kids (of all ages, of course!)

Was trying to use up some pop tarts which honestly I don't care for any way so this review is actually from my husband who said it tasted like a poor man's dessert. He didn't like how the pop tarts were soggy and the overall texture was comparable to cafeteria food. Sorry for the poor review, I'm sure it would be a hit with pop-tart loving kiddos.
