I firmly believe that despite our flaws, the United States of America is still the greatest nation on the planet. I love celebrating the Fourth of July, and I’m not ashamed to say I love my country! As the fourth approaches, I have been thinking a lot about sharing some great recipe ideas with you all. I really wanted to create something great to end your holiday barbecue as you settle in to watch
fireworks light up the sky. What better way to celebrate America’s birthday than with this show stopping and impressive White Chocolate Mousse Holiday Trifle?
Trifle is a really fun and easy dessert to assemble. (And I think you’ll find it even more fun to eat!) I created this trifle to show love of country and love of food. The base layer is made of Red Velvet cake with sliced strawberries sprinkled in. Next, a creamy, fluffy layer of white chocolate mousse is generously applied over the layer of cake. Then the mousse is topped with fresh blueberries. Repeat the layers one more time in that order finishing off with a few whole strawberries in the center just to make it look extra pretty. Sparkler is optional, but how fun would it be to present this dessert to your guests with one lit on top! What a fun way to get everyone psyched up for fireworks!
I really love fireworks, don’t you? If I had a bunch of money to blow I’d buy tons every year and put on my own show. Dead serious. Now that I live in the desert the public is limited as to the types of fireworks we can purchase, so I usually like to go to a public fireworks display somewhere in town. What’s your favorite part of celebrating the Fourth of July? Parades? Parties? Food? Fireworks? It’s all good! And so is this recipe, I hope you try it and let me know what you think!
