If you love chocolate and peppermint, you're going to love Chocolate Peppermint trifle! Be sure to serve this for company, because it's so easy and delicious that you won't be able to quit eating it!
I hope you've been enjoying my 12 Days of Christmas series. I'm loving the projects and recipes shared by the guest bloggers. Today I'm taking a break from the series to bring you One Creative Weekend #23! The 12 Days of Christmas will continue tomorrow.
Before I start the party, I want to share my guest post from last week. In case you missed it on Salt Tree, here it is.
WARNING. This dessert is seriously addicting! My husband and I ate the whole thing ourselves in just two days!
This recipe is super easy and super yummy!!
Easy Holiday Chocolate Peppermint Trifle
- 1 Recipe of your favorite chocolate cake--baked and cooled
- 1 large box of chocolate pudding (+milk)--prepared according to package directions (wait for cake to cool before you prepare the pudding)
- 1 large tub of whipped topping
- 1/2 - 1 pkg Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips
- 5 peppermint Candy Canes--crushed
Cut cooled cake into cubes. Cover the bottom of your bowl with cake pieces. Top with 1/2 of the pudding. Top with up to 1/2 of the whipped topping. Sprinkle with candy cane and Andes peppermint bits (up to 1/2 of the mix--depending on how minty you like it). Repeat the layers.
*You can easily use only Andes or only candy canes. Both are equally yummy!
Whether you need dessert for your Christmas party or dessert for one or two, this recipe has you covered. You can make a full recipe or just a small one. It can be layered in almost anything! . . . a giant mug . . . a mason jar . . .
Freeze individual portions for later, or add a ribbon and a cute jar topper (download mine here) for a great gift to a friend or neighbor.
I don't know about you, but I am seriously craving some chocolate! I think it's definitely time to make another batch!
