Tips and FAQ 

  • Choose fresh, ripe strawberries: This is an important step as the strawberries are the  main flavor in the trifle. You want to make sure they are sweet and juicy, so pick the  ripest strawberries you can find. 
  • Crush the pretzels: The pretzels should be crushed into small, bite-sized pieces. You can  use a food processor or crush them by hand in a plastic bag. The pretzels will add a salty  crunch to the trifle. 
  • Layer the ingredients: Start with a layer of crushed pretzels at the bottom of your trifle  dish. Next, add a layer of strawberries, then a layer of whipped cream. Repeat the  layering until you reach the top of the dish, then garnish with additional whipped cream  and crushed pretzels. 
  • Can I make this trifle ahead of time? A: Yes, you can make the trifle ahead of time and  store it in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve it. Just keep in mind that the  pretzels will soften the longer the trifle sits. 
  • Can I use a different type of fruit instead of strawberries? A: Yes, you can use any type  of fruit that you like. Some popular alternatives include blueberries, raspberries, or  peaches.
