I always quadruple this recipe to (almost) fill a standard size trifle dish, refrigerate for 30 minutes or more, then top with softened whipped topping, then refrigerate at least 30 minutes more before serving. My hubby says it's better on the second day which is a PLUS for a dinner party - Make it the day before you want to serve it, cover well with plastic wrap, (try to hide it in the frig from your family). It is not as sugary on the second day so I like to make it the day before I need it. Other than quadrupling the recipe I follow it as printed then add the whipped cream.
I garnish with chocolate sprinkles on top of the cool whip or sliced strawberries around the top edge of the triffle dish. Everyone will think you are a trained chef and all will want the recipe. Best of all - this is so easy to make!
My husband and our friends always fight over who gets to take the last of the mousse home (if there is any left) so last year I bought several nice, but inexpensive triffle bowls at a discount store, filled the bowls with this recipe and attached the recipe to the stem of the bowl. It was a huge hit for a (mostly) homemade Christmas gift for our close friends.
