Lucky Leaf Layers of Love Strawberry-Choco Trifle

Lucky Leaf wanted me to try out one of their Valentine’s Day inspired recipes. I decided to try their Layers of Love Cherry-Choco Trifle. I didn’t have all the right ingredients so I substituted a few things. We used my cherry pie filling to make slow cooker cherry crisp last week. So I substituted strawberry instead of cherry. I also only had red cake so I used that instead of chocolate and didn’t have chocolate pudding so I used cheesecake pudding.

They also have a few other recipes for a special treat for Valentine’s Day. You can see videos on their Facebook page.

This recipe turned out to be a big hit! I took the girls in my family to see Disney on Ice tonight and when I got home the entire Trifle was GONE! I saw the empty bowl and asked my husband if the rest was put away in a smaller bowl. Nope, it was all eaten. Craziness!

I need to do a giveaway but don’t want to close up this post, so I will be doing a separate post next with my giveaway and more about Lucky Leaf’s Valentine’s day recipes.
