"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." — Jen Graham

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 was really excited to make this for Christmas dinner. It was good, but not great. In fact, it was barely touched :(
I made this for Christmas dinner; it was fantastic! I modified by doubling pudding mixture, and adding nutmeg and cinammon to the whip cream. Also, I couldn't find a gingerbread cake mix so I used a spice cake, and added ground ginger and molasses to it and it tasted just like gingerbread. I also made a praline and crumbled it-anyone that wanted it added some on top of thier trifle. Don't add it before or it won't be crunchy! It was a great addition with a bit of crunch. Definitely will make this one again!
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, plus it was delicious.
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 the holidays. It may be my new go to dish!
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.
