Mealtime Monday: 4th of July Dessert Trifle
This festive 4th of July Trifle is easy to make and perfect for 4th of July parties and get togethers. The kids will love helping assemble the pieces. Mine love anything that has to do with food coloring, so we had a blast! It’s easy to adapt to other holidays as well (ie. red and green food coloring with kiwi and strawberries for Christmas).
