Shortcut Berry Trifles

Shortcut Berry Trifles

These individual desserts transform store-bought semi-homemade ingredients into something really delicious.

If you’re short on time, feel free to use whipped topping or canned whipped cream. Try your favorite pudding and pound cake flavors to change it up.
