This is beautiful! Absolutely georgous. For the jelly rolls I used little debbie's. They looked spectacular- but they didn't soften at all. The crowd I made it for loved it but my husband and I knew it could have been better with a homemade jellyroll. But like I said- It is beautiful!!! Read More

Made this as a treat for my family yesterday. Made a few changes - used canned strawberry pie filling in place of fresh strawberries because there weren't any when I went grocery shopping used cheesecake pudding and added creamed cream cheese to the pudding mixture had fresh jellyrolls from grocery store bakery and cut them in 1/4" slices. Layered jellyrolls pudding mix whipped topping strawberry filling repeated along with standing slices of jellyroll around the outside on the pudding layer. It was fantasic! Read More

I also used the Little Debbie's rolls and it makes a very pretty dish. This is ideal for a summer potluck dessert. I sliced the jellyrolls in fairly thin slices (about 1/2 inch) which helps them soften considerably. Read More

I have made this several times each time with rave reviews. I sometimes use cheesecake flavored pudding instead of vanilla chocolate works well too. Once i used a tub of prepared cheesecake filling from the cooler section. It still tasted great maybe a bit better even. Read More

This was an extremely easy trifle to put together and it was very tasty. Next time I make it I will use two boxes of Little Debbie's jelly rolls and I may layer it differently. Read More

This is a very very good dessert! It's easy to make. I did double the recipe & substituted 2 1/2 packages of Shortcake (each package had 4 shortcakes) for the jellyrolls. The dessert was a hit at the potluck!! Read More

My daughter and I made this tonight for a dessert and it was delish! It was simple to prepare. I used Lactaid in place of the milk because dairy just doesn't cooperate with me anymore. It turned out great. I too used Little Debbie rolls which probably made it a little bit sweeter than I care for but it was still amazing! Read More
