This post is sponsored by Drizly but all opinions are my own.christmas-cranberry-trifle-recipeGet ready for these 15 minutes ‘Holiday Cranberry Trifle with Spiced Rum’ dessert recipe that would leave everyone asking for that second round for sure. I have been getting a lot of messages regarding quick holiday dessert recipes and believe me this one is by far ‘The Most’ easiest dessert that I’ve ever made. It just requires few ingredients and can be assembled in 15 minutes. Now, before we get into how we made this deliciousness, I quickly wanted to tell you about this site called Drizly which made making this dessert, even more, easier. It’s a site where you can buy liquor online and it gets delivered to your doorstep – How cool is that !
Especially during the holidays, we are running around to get so much done, that I totally love the option of having things delivered at home.
cranberry-trifle-easy-recipeNow, getting back to our recipe, I’m using common ingredients found in our homes like cream, cake, cranberries and of course spiced rum (through Drizly) to jazz it all up. I did make the cranberry sauce at home but you can absolutely use store-bought or any leftover cranberry sauce that you might have. Then I crumbled the cake, added some chopped pecans (optional), spiced rum and lightly mixed everything using a fork. To make things little fancier, I used champagne flutes to layer the trifle but go ahead and use any glass or bowl for the same. Once everything was layered and trifle was ready, I dolloped it with some extra whipped cream on top, dusted with some white chocolate and added a cranberry on top – I totally gulped down 2 glasses….just taste testing before I serve 😉 cranberry-trifle-recipe-christmasEvery bite is creamy, fluffy and has just the right amount of spiced rum to send you to your food happy zone. You can make then a night in advance and I’m serving it for my Christmas brunch this year along with few other yummy treats that I would be sharing soon. Now, if you don’t drink or are avoiding liquor, you can still make the trifle with a splash of cranberry juice or just totally skip the rum. I hope you get to enjoy this yummy treat soon…..Oh I forgot, these would be FABULOUS for Date Nights too !
