Strawberry & Coconut Trifles with Rum-Dipped Wafers
These fruit desserts look like they take a lot of time and effort, but luckily they come together in a snap. These strawberry trifles are full of flavor and textures, making them a satisfying after-dinner treat.
Toss strawberries with 2 Tbsp. rum and 1 Tbsp. sugar; let macerate, stirring occasionally.
Whip cream, remaining 2 Tbsp. sugar, and vanilla with a hand mixer until stiff peaks form.
Dip vanilla wafers in remaining rum and place 3 each in bottom of 4 glasses. Top wafers with a layer of strawberries, 2 Tbsp. each toasted coconut and macadamia nuts, and ¼ cup whipped cream. Repeat layering once more, ending with whipped cream.
For additional flavor, add a splash of rum to the strawberries and let them macerate a bit before assembling.
Chill the bowl and beaters prior to whipping the heavy cream for quicker thickening.
