Christmas Egg Nog Trifle

Ingredients:

1 box of yellow cake mix, I use Duncan Hines

2 8 ounce dairy topping, like Cool Whip, thawed

2 cans of whole berry cranberry sauce

2 Tablespoons hot water

1 bag of Bits of Brittle Toffee Bits

1 box of instant vanilla pudding

1/2 gallon of egg nog

Christmas sprinkles, optional

Gingerbread man cookie, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Make cake according to package directions. Instead of adding water, use one cup of egg nog instead. Bake in a 13 x 9 pan for 23-28 minutes and cool.

Prepare pudding according to package directions. Instead of using milk, use egg nog instead. Beat egg nog and pudding together on high speed for about four minutes. Put in refrigerator to set. That should only take about 5 minutes but you can do this the day before.

Open a can of whole cranberry sauce. Put in a bowl and add 1 Tablespoon of hot water. Stir and this will become smooth and easier to spread. I just opened one can at a time. Easier for me to keep the cranberry layer even.

Cut up cake into pieces and make that the first layer of the trifle. Use the pudding for the next layer. Spread a layer of whip topping on top of the pudding. Add a layer of cranberry sauce. You will use the entire can for each layer. Next sprinkle on the toffee bits and repeat the layers. For the last layer I added a layer of whip topping on top of the cranberry sauce and covered the whip topping with toffee bits. I used a 1M tip to decorate the top of my trifle. Added sprinkles and a Pepperidge Farm gingerbread man cookie. This can be made a day ahead. Keep refrigerated until read to serve. Enjoy!

 Peaches And Cheesecake Trifles To Go


I am a true Southerner. I was born and raised in Southern California, my Mom was born and raised in North Carolina and I have lived in Tampa over 30 years. I believe I am qualified to be a Southerner. You are not really a Southerner if you have not had a beverage or eaten out of a Mason jar! This is an easy, quick recipe to make, pack and go. Easy to transport to a picnic or to take to a friends house. This can also be made in a large trifle bowl, adjustments on the ingredients would have to be increased. This recipe is dedicated to my real Southern Belle cousin, Janet Solesbee.

Ingredients:
1 angel food cake (I used one from the bakery)
1 box of jello cheesecake instant pudding, prepared according to box directions
1 small tub of frozen whipped topping (I used Cool Whip)
1 bag of toffee bits
3 or more fresh ripe peaches, I used 3 large peaches
6 Mason jars, I used the jelly jars

Cut up peaches and soak in 7-up or Sprite to prevent browning. Place torn up angel food cake in the bottoms of a Mason jars. Add a layer of pudding. Add a layer of peaches. Add whip topping and sprinkle with toffee bits. Repeat layers. You should be able to get 2 layers of everything in the jar. Refrigerate. You will have leftover angel food cake. Enjoy!

**Calorie and fat content can be reduced by using low fat milk and lite frozen topping mix. No sugar was added to the peaches, they were ripe and sweet!
