1 pt. vanilla ice cream
3 bananas
3/4 c. pecans

1 small Hershey's bar

Dissolve 2 pkg. raspberry jello in 2 1/2 c. boiling water. Add frozen raspberries and strawberries thawed or use fresh. Add 1 pint vanilla ice cream while jello is hot. Be careful; stir gently so fruit remains whole.
Add bananas, cut in 1 inch pieces and cut in fourths and pecans. Put in fridge and let set good (like overnight). Bread 1 large or 2 small angel food cakes into bite-size pieces and put on top of jello. Make a double recipe of quick tapioca pudding; let cool, but do not stir until ready to add to trifle ( about 20 min.) Pour tapioca on top of cake, working down in between pieces of cake.
Whip 1/2 pint of cream, sweetened and flavored well, and pout on top. Grate 1 small Hershey's bar on top Put in fridge for 12 hours.
