1. Easter Trifle with Peeps

The kids will go bonkers for these Peep trifles! I mean, just look at this holiday masterpiece. 

An iconic Easter candy, Peeps are just about as festive as it gets. 

So why not spread the joy and share this whimsical dessert? 

The layers of colorful cake, pudding, Cool Whip, and Easter-themed topping create quite the scene. 

Each Peep gets bundled in edible Easter grass with candies that look like eggs. 

It’s genius! It’s also fun to make with the family. 

2. Easter Trifle Parfait

Here’s another family-friendly trifle that will make your holiday. 

The pastel colors are very fitting for Easter. 

While the white cake, whipped topping, and pudding layers are the perfect balance of sweet and creamy.  

Then there’s the adorable decoration of sprinkles, Peeps, and spring M&M’s. It’s almost too cute to eat!

When it comes to ingredients, you have options too. Swap out the white cake for lemon or pistachio.

You can mess around with different pudding flavors too. Vanilla, banana, or strawberry are all great choices. 

I also like to mix and match pastel colors to create a stunning visual display. 

3. Angel Berry Trifle

For something more elegant, go with this angel berry trifle. The fresh berries, angel food cake, and creamy layers are divine. 

Start by placing the cake on the bottom. This helps provide a solid base to pile on the layers. 

Next, add the lavish mixture of pudding, cream cheese, yogurt, and sour cream.

Follow that with an assortment of berries and repeat. 

The vanilla pudding custard is ridiculously creamy.

Combined with the juicy berries and airy angel food cake, it’s heavenly. 

You could use small cups to make individual servings. But I just love how the layers look in a large trifle glass.

4. Easter Trifle (With Birds’ Nests)

Imagine how sensational this will look as your Easter centerpiece!

The soft pastel colors are remarkably eye-catching. And the decorations are so fun.

Speaking of fun, there is one playful cake that’s a must with this trifle. 

Can you guess what it is? Funfetti!

The soft white cake and speckle of colors instantly make this cake jolly. 

To complete the look, use pink and blue food coloring to dye vanilla pudding.

Then, make bundles of edible Easter grass and plop a few candy eggs into each.

Say, you know what else I’m thinking? If you adjust the color scheme, this trifle works for baby showers, too. 

5. Cream Cheese Carrot Cake Trifle

I can think of no dessert more symbolic of Easter than carrot cake

Those cream cheese layers and tender carrot-speckled cake are a classic. 

But have you ever thought of turning it into a trifle? It’s incredible!

And you don’t have to be a professional baker to whip it up. With the help of Betty Crocker’s boxed cake, it’s simple to make. 

All you have to worry about is watching the timer and mixing the creamy layer. 

Easy and delicious? That right there makes it one of the best carrot desserts around. 

So give yourself a break this Easter and try this trifle. The family will surely be happy you did!

6. Creme Egg Trifle

Did you love Cadbury eggs as a kid? I did too!

I looked forward to those chocolatey creamy eggs every Easter.

So you can imagine how jazzed I was when I found this trifle. 

It’s packed with nostalgia! It also doesn’t hurt that it’s full of chocolate. 

It’s an indulgent mix of brownies, chocolate custard, and vanilla cheesecake. And, it’s jam-packed with Cadbury eggs.

I don’t think there’s a chocolate Easter dessert out there more decadent than this. 

7. Lemon Strawberry Trifle

If you’re planning a big Easter dinner, a lighter dessert is most likely in order. 

Enter my favorite lemon strawberry trifle. 

Anyone who’s been here before knows my love of strawberry shortcake.

This dessert is reminiscent of that, except in trifle form.

It’s got multiple layers of spongy angel food cake, creamy lemon pudding, and strawberries.

It even comes complete with a lemon curd topping.

Bright, fresh, and festive, it’s the perfect sweet bite after dinner.

8. White Chocolate Raspberry Trifle

Can’t decide between a chocolatey or fruity dessert? Have them both with this white chocolate raspberry trifle. 

This exquisite dessert gives you the best of both worlds. 

You get a velvety white chocolate mousse, whipped cream, and chocolate shavings.

On the other hand, you get layers of raspberry preserves and fresh raspberries. 

But what about the cake? Keep it on the lighter side with angel food cake. 

It eliminates the need for baking. All you have to do is mix the creamy layers and assemble. 

9. Easter Pink Velvet Cheesecake Trifle

Holidays are all about spending time with family. And this trifle is the perfect activity for building new memories.  

The kids will have so much fun assembling this dessert. Not to mention the delight they’ll get from eating it too!

Start by prepping the station. You cube the pink cake and mix Cool Whip with cheesecake instant pudding.

Then lay out all the Easter candy. Now, it’s time to assemble. 

There’s no need to worry about which layers go first. No matter how the kids make it, it will be a masterpiece. 

10. Rainbow Trifle

This beautiful Easter dessert will leave your guests impressed. 

The rainbow pattern is so cheerful. Meanwhile, the dipped vanilla wafers are a dazzling touch. 

And yes, it’s as fun to make as it is to eat. 

The cookie, cake, and pudding layers provide complementary flavors and textures.

I recommend saving the recipe. You’ll want it for birthdays, baby showers, and other special occasions.
