Perfect for Christmas and other summertime holiday time festivities, such as New Years Eve parties and family get togethers, this trifle is quick and easy to make.
It is so popular, so might want to make two batches to make sure there is enough to go around--one with sherry for the adults and one with apple juice for kids and non-drinkers or those who have to drive on Christmas day.
Ingredients 2 packets of jelly (strawberry or port wine goes nice with the berry theme, or your flavour of choice)
2 packets mini jam rollettes
1/2 cup apple juice or sweet sherry
2 cups custard
2 cups thickened cream (whipping kind)
1 cup blueberries
In advance prepare your jelly per packet directions so that it may be set (jelly takes 4 hours minimum to set unless you can get your hands on the quick-set variety which will only take 1 hour). You can set it into bowls, because it is going to be cut up anyway before being put into the trifle.
Cut the rollettes into half cm thin rounds to line your dish as pictured. Pour half the apple juice or sweet sherry on to soak.
Cut your set jelly into chunks and pour on top of the rollettes.
Place 1/2 of the blueberries on top of the jelly and then top with 1 cup of custard.
Repeat putting jam rollettes on top of custard, then jelly and custard again.
Top with whipped cream and blueberries and store in the fridge until ready to serve.
