How to Make the Best Berry Trifle with White Chocolate Cream Recipe

This fresh Berry Trifle With White Chocolate Cream is made with cake sandwiched between layers of an easy white chocolate mousse and fresh berries.

  • Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Berry Trifle with White Chocolate Cream: Fresh blueberries, fresh strawberries, granulated sugar, lemon juice, Dream Whip (Dry whipped topping mix) instant white chocolate or cheesecake flavored pudding, baked and cubed angel food cake and whipped cream.
  • Kitchen gadgets you’ll need: A 4 quart or larger trifle bowl, a colander to rinse the berries, a hand mixer or a stand mixer, large mixing bowl, measuring cups and spoons, a sharp knife and cutting board plus a large spoon for assembling the white chocolate cream layers.
  • I use Cool Whip for this recipe for ease of preparation. You can make your own fresh sweetened whipped cream, if desired. When doing so you’ll need around 2 cups whipped cream for the top.
  • What is Dream Whip? It’s a brand of dry whipped topping mix. It can be found on the baking aisle of most grocery stores including places like Target and Walmart. It provides flavor and volume for the white chocolate layers.
  • If you’re unable to find white chocolate instant pudding, cheesecake flavored pudding mix works beautifully.
  • Allow this berry trifle ample time for chilling in the refrigerator before serving as a festive sweet ending to your meal. At least 4 hours or overnight is ideal.
  • Store leftover Berry Trifle with White Chocolate Cream chilled in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

  1. 5 stars
    So, I made this yummy trifle after emailing Melissa to ask about where to find Dream Whip. Melissa, thanks for taking the time to answer me and I agree, it makes the difference for the filling. It’s light and fluffy and I like that it can be made in advance. This recipe turned me into a star even if it was just for the day! Thanks, Melissa keep them coming to my inbox!

  2. Berries and cream always good in my book and I love the way you decorated the top of the trifle.

  3. 1 box of Dream Whip contains two envelopes/packages of dry whipped topping. Use both. I can see how that might be confusing. Use the entire box.

  4. This looks amazing! I see the ingredients list calls for 1 package of Dream Whip but the instructions refer to “both” packages…

  5. From Donna Bardocz…I love simple, but elegant looking desserts like this one!! Didi is right, this is a winner!

  6. This is truly a work of art Melissa, and I know it had to be the star of the day! Hope you enjoyed your July 4th celebration.
