Easy 4th of July Dessert Jell-O-Trifle Recipe

To celebrate the 4th of July, this festive dessert is always at the top of our list. I started making it over 15 years ago based on a Jell-O magazine ad. This year I decided it’s my kids turn to learn how to make it!

The best part about this jello trife recipe is that kids can get involved in almost every single step of the delicious 4th dessert process.

Ingredients needed for the Jello Trifle dessert

Ingredients for the 4th of July dessert
This is what you need to make the easy 4th of July dessert.
  • 1 liter fresh strawberries
  • 1 liter fresh blueberries
  • 1 large pound cake (available in the freezer)
  • 1 large container of whipped dessert topping
  • 1 6-ounce packet of Strawberry Jell-O
  • 1 6-ounce packet of berry blue jelly

Instructions for making jelly dessert trifle

Step 1

4th of July Prepare desert trifle

Prepare Jell-O according to package directions and cool in shallow pans.

Tip for cooking with children: This is a great opportunity for little ones to see simple in-game instructions – I read all the instructions aloud to my son while he was crafting and even enlisted his engaging help.

step 2

4th of July Dessert Instructions Step 2 - Cut everything into bite-sized pieces
Time to trim everything to get ready for layering!

Wash and prepare the fruit – cut the strawberries into small pieces.

step 3

Once set, use a knife to cut the jelly into squares.

Cut the sponge cake into 1 inch cubes – I keep my sponge cake frozen until we’re ready to bake the trifle – it’s less likely to crumble.

step 4

This is my favorite part!

In a tall, clear glass bowl or casserole dish, layer the ingredients:

  1. Start with the sponge cake, then the berries and finally the whipped topping
  2. Continue layering with the Red Jell-O
  3. whipped cream
  4. Blue Jell-O
  5. Depending on how deep your bowl is, keep layering until you reach the top.
  6. This is another great opportunity to give your kids a chance to “build” the little thing.

So many layers…

Another option that works really well for your 4th of July picnic is to prepare individual trifle servings in clear plastic cups. Children can customize their wishes and build special little things for family members!

Chatting about Independence Day together in the kitchen

As we prepared our dessert this year, we had a great discussion about the 4th of July and the colors that symbolize America.

The colors red, white, and blue were chosen by the Continental Congress in 1782 to represent in the Great Seal of the United States:

  • White mean purity and innocence
  • Red for bravery and resilience
  • Blue for vigilance, perseverance and justice

I was surprised that my older children understood quite well what those words meant and how they applied to our country in 1782.

Without the tenacity, tenacity, and purity of our founding fathers, America would not be what it is today.

Enough with the history lesson! Doesn’t that look GOOD?
