Every time I go to the grocery store as the holiday season approaches, I always check the milk section for my favorite holiday drink: EGGNOG. I was thrilled when they started making it during Halloween, because now I get to enjoy it for one extra month every year! When I came across this Eggnog Gingerbread Trifle (with eggnog pudding) – I knew it would be at the top of my holiday dessert list from now on. I brought it to our mom’s house after one of our meetings, and we polished off the entire trifle. If you love the holiday flavors of eggnog and gingerbread, you might just polish off this trifle, too. 🙂
Eggnog Gingerbread Trifle:
1 14.5 oz spice cake mix
1 tablespoons molasses
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 5.1 oz package instant vanilla pudding
3 cups eggnog
2 cups cool whip, thawed
Add molasses and nutmeg to the spice cake mix, and then prepare and bake the cake as directed (I baked it in a 9×13). Let it cool completely.
Pour the pudding mix in a large bowl, and whisk in the 3 cups of eggnog until it is completely incorporated (about 2 minutes). Refrigerate until you are ready to assemble the trifle.
Crumble 1/2 of the cake into the bottom of the bowl. Cover with 1/2 of the pudding mixture, and 1 cup of cool whip. Repeat. Refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. When you are ready to serve, top with gingersnaps and craisins.
