I received bottles of Torani syrup to facilitate this post. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.
This Elvis Trifle with Bacon is a dessert worthy of a king … the King of Rock n Roll that is!
We’re taking Elvis’ favorite food and kicking it up three notches – with this Elvis Trifle with Bacon. Elvis was known for his love of peanut butter and banana sandwiches …. and I’m almost sure that if Elvis were alive today, he would not only be on the bacon boat, he would be steering the ship!
So what’s in this trifle you ask?! Banana flavored cake, creamy peanut butter pudding, whipped topping, lots and lots of bananas, and bacon. Of course! I also have a little secret to get that banana cake … Torani syrup! Have you ever used Torani products?! I am addicted to them and I’m almost embarrassed by how many bottles I have! As you can see, they can be used in more things than just drinks – although, Torani does make some pretty great flavors for drinks!
