One thing I love about developing Halloween treat recipes, aside from eating copious amounts of sweets in the name of research, is to come up with funny names for said treats.
Halloween trifle recipe
My favorites from past years are our bad bat biscuits and raven cake bites. This year, tarantula trifle made the top of my list! Okay, that sounds scary. But fear not, this quick and easy Halloween dessert is made with layers of chocolate cake, cherry jelly (jello), sweets and a generous dollop whipped cream.
Sounds a lot less scary already, doesn’t it? The ingredients include mostly store-bought goodies so that you can have the trifle on the table in almost no time. I also piped a few chocolate spider webs to decorate each trifle.
And to make creating the chocolate spider webs as easy as possible, I have created a printable template that you can download at the end of the post.
Because I can never resist the opportunity to be crafty, I printed out the decorative pattern from our Itsy Bitsy Spider Halloween collection on sticker paper and applied it to the bottom half of wooden spoons to serve alongside the trifle.
