How Do You Make a Trifle to Feed a Crowd

Trifles are super simple to make so they’re the perfect choice if you need to feed a crowd over the Holidays or at your next Pot Luck.

They keep well so you can make your dessert ahead of time, which is really useful if you’re hosting dinner and you want to take some of the stress out of preparing everything else on the day.

If you know how many people will be eating dessert one of the easiest ways to make a trifle to feed a crowd is to use individual glasses so that you know there is enough for everyone.

The other option is to make your trifle in a huge bowl (like this one from Amazon).

Whichever way you go making it is just a case of layering the various ingredients so that the finished trifle looks pretty in the bowl!

You can keep things safe using traditional trifle ingredients, or impress your guests with one of these show stopping trifle recipes instead!
