Hello !!! Hello!!!
I found this recipe in the paper
and decided to test it out.
I will first go through it step by step and then I will give you my final thoughts on it.
Here is basically the ingredients.
Trifle dish, angle food cake, jar of Smuckers Raspberry Preserves, Smuckers Hot Fudge, A big thing of cool whip, 1/2 cup of coffee, and a package of fresh raspberries.
It calls for 2 regular containers of cool whip or 1 large one.
Here are the Preserves and Hot Fudge
Raspberries - I rinsed them in the package
1/2 cup of strong coffee
And a pre made Angle Food Cake
cut the angle food cake in about 1 inch cubes. Remember to use a serrated knife
and sit aside.
measure out 3/4 of the raspberry preserves
and then take out a few of the raspberries
and set aside.
With the remainder berries
add them to the
and set aside.
Then take a the hot fudge
and add a couple table spoons to a baggie
push it down to the corner and
In a large bowl
take add the
hot fudge then
add the coffee
and then start
smooth. Then take
half the cool whip and
At this point,
add 1/2 the angle food cake to the trifle dish
and then add 1/2 of the chocolate mouse.
raspberry mixture on top of the moose
and carefully spread around.
add the remaining angle food cake
( top view ) and then
add the rest of the mouse.
Then take the rest of the
whipped cream and add it to the top.
Then take the remainder of the preserves and
for a few seconds to thin it out.
Same with the hot fudge.
Then cut the corner of the bag so you can drizzle it over the top.
Yea.. not too pretty..
I was hoping it would at least taste good.
Well.. I served it up to my friends and we all pretty much had the same thoughts on it..
NEEDS MORE RASPBERRY TASTE
Besides that it was good. I think 2 jars would have been better and I wouldn't drizzle anything over it. The Raspberries on top would be just fine. I wanted to follow the recipe but everyone who had it last night, thought it needed a little tweaking!
Let me know if you saw this recipe and intend on trying it!
