St. Patrick’s Day dessert Instructions
Making these delicious little sinful trifles is incredibly easy. All you have to do is whip up some pudding, color it (which requires a few drops of food coloring – easy peasy), crumble up the cookies and then layer both in some cute little cups or bowls. Top the trifles off with some whipped cream, followed by a dusting of green and gold sprinkles, and then crown them with an edible gold coin. That’s it!
Can You Make Mint Chocolate Trifles Ahead of Time
St. Patrick’s Day Mint Chocolate Trifles can be made a day in advance. Just note: if you serve right after making, or within a few hours, the cookies will remain very crisp and crunchy. If you serve the next day, however, the cookies will become softer. It doesn’t change the taste at all though, and it’s truly a personal preference.
In addition, I would not add the whipped cream until right before you serve these St. Patrick’s Day desserts. Otherwise, the whipped cream will begin to melt. And while it tastes amazingly delicious mixed in with the mint chocolate cookies and vanilla pudding, it doesn’t look as good. 🙂
