Holiday greetings from Holly! This is a busy time of year for just about everyone. Christmas just ended, the new year is upon us, and people are scrambling to make this time special for their families. Well, I think presenting your guests with an impressive meal is how you can be "winning" like Charlie Sheen this season. I'm going to start from the end, though, and share my Christmas dessert with you. This dessert was inspired by my favorite pastime lately, Bakery Story (click here to download Bakery Story for Android and Bakery Story for Apple). It's a delightful game in which you create and run your own little bakery. One of my favorite recipes is the chocolate cherry trifle. I also made a "celebration trifle" inspired by this same game, but I will share that recipe with you later.
This recipe will leave you with a decadent, crowd-pleasing dessert with very little work or cooking skill required. If you want to break away from the traditional fruit cake and ginger bread house territory that goes hand-in-hand with this season, then follow me to trifle land, friends.
