Gooey Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Bars

What a pleasure partnering with General Mills Cereal to bring you a fun Back To School Weekend Dessert! This time of year is so exciting as our kids start a new school year.  With so much going on, getting used to new schedules, things can get hectic too.

We want to help put you and your family first during this exciting but hectic time of year. One of the biggest things that has helped me for back to school season is organizing and preparing the kids school lunch the night before.  I’m not saying we are perfect at this every day, but when we get lunches made before hand, our mornings seem to go so much smoother and enjoyable.  I also like to make it a team effort.  Mom makes the sandwiches and the kids get their snacks and water bottles ready.  Team effort is always nice.

Gooey Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Bars

I love how General Mills Cereals is on a journey to make cereals even better, while removing things you don’t want so you can feel good about choosing cereal as your child’s first meal of the day. That means removing artificial flavors and colors from artificial sources, and using only real ingredients like honey, cocoa and cinnamon to make your family’s favorite General Mills cereals likes Honey Nut Cheerios, Chex, Cocoa Puffs, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and many more.

Today, more than 90 percent of General Mills cereal recipes do not have artificial flavors and colors from artificial sources.

Gooey Chocolate Peanut Butter Crunch Bars

To make these gooey bars, start by adding your cereal and marshmallows into a large mixing bowl.

Pour right over your cereal mixture.

This Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle is the perfect dessert for summer fun entertaining! Your family and friends will love the colorful layers.
Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

It’s a pleasure partnering with Frigidaire Gallery® this year to bring you new fun recipes for your family and friends.  Summer is such a great time to entertain.  You’ll generally find us around the pool with friends daily enjoying great meals together.

I put together a beautiful summer trifle that’s super easy to make.  Gorgeous berries layered with sweet whipped cream and soft vanilla cake pieces make for a delicious dessert to serve all summer long.

Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

One of my favorite vanilla yellow cake recipes is so simple to prepare.

Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

Add your oil and milk to your bowl.

Sour cream, pudding mix and eggs up next.  Stir until well combined.

Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

Pour batter evenly between two 8-inch cake pans.

Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

Time to bake!

Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

Seeing my new kitchen come together has been so exciting this summer!  Using my new Frigidaire Gallery® Double Wall Oven has been amazing.  Some of my favorite features so far are the quick preheat that takes just a few minutes, and the true convection option which circulates hot air throughout the oven for faster and more even baking.  Really excited to test this out on my baking, cooking a whole chicken and our turkey dinner during the Holidays.  I can steam clean the oven in 20 minutes and it’s chemical-free and odor- free. Plus the stainless steel is Smudge Proof™!  Score!  Needless to say I am going to be loving this double oven throughout every season.  So exciting!

Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

I just used one oven for my cakes today.  Both pans fit nicely on the top shelf.

Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

These will bake for close to 30 minutes.

Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

Perfect, remove from oven and let cool.  As a time saving tip, bake your cakes up to 3 days in advance.  Cover tightly and store in refrigerator until ready to bake.

 

Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

Make sure your strawberries are washed and dry.  Remove stems and slice.

Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

Wash and dry your vibrant raspberries.

Same with your blueberries.

Once your cakes are cool, cut into cubes and layer the first layer into the bottom of your trifle bowl.

Whipped cream up next!

Layer some berries over your whipped cream then another layer of cake.

Top with more whipped cream and berries for the top layer.  Get creative and decorate the berries however you’d like.

Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

Such a beautiful dessert!

Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

You’ll want to place your trifle into the refrigerator until ready to serve. So excited about my new Frigidaire Gallery® French Door Refrigerator.

The Smudge-Proof™ Stainless Steel resists fingerprints and cleans easily.  So incredibly helpful with all of the busy boys in my house.

Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

I’m also loving the adjustable interior storage with more than 100 ways to organize and customize. The shelves can flip-up and slide-under to help me make room for tall or large items and the humidity-controlled crisper drawers can be configured any number of ways, either side-by-side or stacked on top of each other, so I can organize the refrigerator any way I want. Heaven knows I’m always moving things around with all of the things I’m cooking and baking, so helpful 🙂

Very Berry Vanilla Cake Trifle

My trifle fits perfectly and is ready to be enjoyed! Cover loosely with plastic wrap if desired.  We were digging in right after these photos, so I left mine uncovered.

Enjoy!
