You know, a good dessert doesn't have to be complicated, time-consuming, and "everything's made from scratch" to be fun, unique, and have that "wow" factor.
I love my mini trifle dishes. I got them at the Crate and Barrel outlet last year. I have 12 of them. And, I love creating fun, easy, unique desserts in them.
This weekend, I created little S'more trifles out of the simplest of ingredients.
Crushed graham crackers.
I have named them "S'mifles".
I love how each of the layers really stand out against the others.
Valentine's Day trifle? Ooh la looooove.
I love Hershey's kisses. Nothin' says love the way they do.
But, I'm gonna have to say that I liked the top of this one the best. Half of a graham cracker, some mini-marshmallows, and a mini-Hershey's chocolate bar.
Campfire trifle, anyone?
I love playing with my food.
Of course, you don't need individual trifle dishes to make this yummy dessert.
Make one big S'more trifle in a large trifle dish.
Layer on up in a glass mixing bowl.
Use a small juice glass.
Use a drinking glass. Double the fun.
How about ramekins?
Just make 'em. With whatever you've got. They taste even better than they look.
Happy food. I love happy food.
