There are several ways to make trifle. As a child I grew up with traditional trifle made with a jelly/jello. Chocolate trifle. Hot trifle and Sherry Trifle. My kids went through a stage where they had to have chocolate trifle every few days. That lasted a while, but they overdosed on it and can’t even hear the name anymore lol. These days, they are more fixated on my sherry trifle. It’s very simple and a good way to use up old cake / pound cake.
