Raspberry Amaretto Angel Trifle

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by heather in Ont

The amaretto adds a subtle flavour to this light tasting dessert. Quick and easy to make as it only needs to chill for 30 minutes. The original recipe calls for 1 3.3 oz pkg of instant white chocolate pudding mix which I have yet to find in my grocery stores and 1/2 cup fat free milk. I have substituted PC's Devon Custard or in French "Creme Anglaise du Devon" for the white chocolate pudding. I also added fresh raspberries and kiwi to jazz it up. Do not make the day before or the cake may become soggy. Cooking time is for chilling. Original recipe source:Cooking Light

Thanks for sending this recipe - it looks wonderful and we love the flavor of Amaretto. I think I prefer your version made with Devon Creme. You can buy white chocolate pudding in Walmart, but we don't care for instant puddings. Thanks again. Maybe when I have a chance to make this I will be able to rate it 5.
