Eggnog Gingerbread Trifle

Eggnog Gingerbread Trifle

Jen Graham

"Combining two of the holiday season's best flavors, this dessert is easy to make and a crowd pleaser! If you are feeling fancy, you can pipe your top layer of whipped cream on the trifle. Since I normally travel with this dessert and put a lid on it, I just spread a nice thick layer on top and then sprinkle with some chopped dried cranberries and crumbled gingerbread cookies."

  1. Prepare gingerbread cake mix and bake according to package directions (any size pan). Cool completely.
  2. Place the pudding mix in a large bowl. Pour in the eggnog and whisk for about 2 minutes. Refrigerate pudding until the gingerbread cake is cool and you are ready to assemble the trifle.
  3. In a large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in sugar and vanilla until peaks form.
  4. Crumble 1/2 of the gingerbread into the bottom of a trifle bowl or a large glass bowl. Spread 1/2 of the eggnog pudding over the gingerbread, then spread 1/2 of the whipped cream on top of the pudding. Repeat the layers with the remaining gingerbread, pudding, and whipped cream. Refrigerate 6 hours or overnight. Sprinkle the top with the cranberries and cookie crumbs before serving.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • You can use already made whipped cream, but I prefer to flavor my whipped cream myself. You can substitute bourbon for the vanilla extract in the whipped cream if you like.
  • If you use low-fat eggnog for the pudding, your pudding will be loose.

I was really excited to make this for Christmas dinner. It was good, but not great. In fact, it was barely touched :(

I am not great with guessing volume - so I measured. For presentation this recipe requires a 10 cup bowl to fill to the brim.

I used light eggnog and Cool Whip for this and we absolutely loved it! I also garnished this with a row of gingersnap cookies around the edge right before serving. It looked really pretty, plu...

AMAZING!!!!! I followed others suggestions and I added molasses and ginger to a spice cake mix and then I added cinnamon and nutmeg to the whipped cream. So very, very good and so perfect for ...

This was good but the eggnog was a little overpowering. I think next time I make it I will use half eggnog and half milk for the pudding.

Ginger bread lovers get ready for a great treat. Made a trial run this morning. Will serve this New Years Eve. Deffinately try this.

This is REALLY very, very tasty. I brought an empty bowl home from the company Christmas party. I love the eggnog pudding, and next time I might double the pudding part because it was so good.

Very good holiday dessert! I made it as written, it was perfect! I think this could become a family tradition.

My family was laughing at my excitement over my new trifle dish, but they have all asked for this one again! This is the perfect combination of ingredients. I made as is and it was very good! ...
