Chocolate Banana Trifle

I was introduced to trifles while I was student teaching in England. I lived with a host family and Rosa was an incredible cook. Sherry Trifle was a Sunday night staple. The trifle always looked beautiful and was absolutely delicious. Trifles are incredibly easy to make. I created this recipe because I had bananas on hand that I wanted to use. My taste testers said the Chocolate Banana Trifle was " pretty damn good." Feel free to substitute with any fruit of your choice. I used homemade whipped cream in this recipe but if you are pressed for time, Cool Whip does the trick! Enjoy!

1 package of Vanilla Oreos, crushed
1 jar of hot fudge sauce, at room temperature
3-4 bananas, sliced
1 Cup of whipping cream
2 Tablespoons of sugar

To crush the cookies, place half of the Oreos in a large plastic bag and smash, repeat with remaining cookies. To make whipped cream, beat cream until soft peaks form, about 2 minutes.  Add sugar and beat for another 30 seconds. Stir the hot fudge sauce, you do not need to warm it up. To make the trifle- layer sliced bananas, cookies, hot fudge sauce and cream. Repeat and decorate top layer of cream with a few crushed cookies if desired. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
