Red, White, and Blue Jell-O Trifle

Yesterday, my parents had my brothers family and my family over for an early 4th of July BBQ. Since I wanted to bring something festive, I decided to make this Jell-O trifle for us all to enjoy. Not only was it incredibly festive, but the entire family (especially kids) went crazy over it.

With raspberry, blueberry, and a creamy white layer…..this was a festive, yummy combination of flavors that was a hit!!

Hope you all have an enjoyable, safe 4th of July!!
