Eggnog Gingerbread Trifle Recipe

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. 🙂
