Springtime Berry Trifle
1 cup boiling water
1 pkg. (8-serving size)
Jell-O brand strawberry flavor gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
2 cups mixed berries – raspberries, blueberries, strawberries
1 pkg. (8 oz) Philadelphia Cream Cheese, softened
1-1/4 cups cold milk, divided
1 pkg. (4-serving size) Jell-O Cheesecake or Vanilla Flavor Instant pudding & Pie filling
1 tub (8 oz) Cool Whip Strawberry whipped Topping, thawed.
1 pkg. (12 oz) pound cake, cubed
Stir boiling water into gelatin in large bowl at least 2 minutes until completely dissolved. Add enough ice to cold water to measure 1 cup. Add to gelatin; stir until ice is completely melted. Let stand about 15 minutes or until thickened. (Spoon drawn through gelatin leaves definite impression.) Stir in berries.
Place cream cheese in large bowl; beat with wire whisk until creamy. Gradually add 1/4 cup of the milk, beating until well blended. Add remaining 1 cup milk and pudding mix; beat 2 minutes or until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping. Set aside.
Place about half of the cake cubes in bottom of large serving bowl; cover with half of the pudding mixture. Top with layers of the gelatin mixture, remaining cake cubes and remaining pudding.
