Tira ma who?

Tiramasu, that's who. Ha! I told you I crack myself up. :)

We went to a 4th of July picnic at my aunt and uncle's house and I made a Tiramasu Trifle. I love making trifles. Seriously, I am the Queen of Trifles!

I found this recipe for a Tiramasu Trifle and my sister Missy really wanted me to make it and so I did. I think I like making Trifles because they are really simple. Bing bang boom they are done.

First you take 24 Nilla wafers and lay them on the bottom and up the side of a trifle dish (love trifle dishes too because I just think they are so pretty). Pour 1/4 cup of brewed coffe over the Nilla Wafers.

Next take 2 squares of Semi-Sweet Chocolate and shave it. I started out using a microplane but didn't like that it didn't turn out curly and pretty and so I switched to a hand-held grater and that made it more curly.

Next I used my KitchenAid mixer to mix together 1 8oz. Cream Cheese, 2 packages of Vanilla Pudding and 3 cups of Milk. Mix it together until it is well mixed and thickened.

Next, stir in 2 cups of Cool Whip.

Then, you take half of the Cream Cheese mixture and spread that over the Nilla Wafers, then sprinkle half of the shaved Chocolate over that.

Repeat the layers one more time. That is, Nilla Wafers, brewed coffee, Cream Cheese mixture, shaved Chocolate.

Add the remaining Cool Whip to the center and then add 1 cup of Raspberries.

Let it chill for 2 hours. Yummmmmm. OMG! It is sooooo good!!!! Fab-u-lous!!! Everyone loved it! If you like Tiramasu then you will love this. And look how pretty it is!! You too can be the Queen of Trifles. I will share my crown with ya! :)
