I created this yummy chocolate trifle when I was given a bottle of Irish Cream liqueur as a gift and had leftover peppermint candy. I've served it with both liqueur and coffee creamer…and candy canes, too! It's always rich and decadent. —Margaret Wilson, Sun City, California
This recipe has been under lock and key for years in our family. Everyone who's ever tried this moist, one-of-a-kind cake can't believe it's a mix. The dessert is perfect for St. Patrick's Day…and you won't need the luck of the Irish to whip it up! —Suzanne Winkhart, Bolivar, Ohio
"I make this festive fudge year-round, but especially at Christmastime," writes Denise Hanson of Anoka, Minnesota. "I've brought it to many different occasions and am asked for the recipe every time. I've also entered it in our local fair and won the blue ribbon!"
Raspberry sauce brings bright flavor and a touch of holiday color to this cool and creamy treat, while pistachios add a lick of saltiness. It'll melt any resistance to dessert!

My husband works for a mint farmer, so I'm always looking for recipes with mint in them. I received this recipe at my bridal shower. My friend wrote "Easy and pretty" on the top corner of the recipe card - and it's so true.
These yummy mint chocolate bites created by our Test Kitchen are so delightful, you’ll find it difficult to stop at one. With a combination of sweetness and crunch from the chocolate cookies, they make pretty holiday gifts with candy canes or other candies on top.
To top off the meal, Connie bakes these appropriately Irish cookies. "But they taste good anytime," she says. "You can even change the food coloring to fit other holidays."—Connie Lou Blommers, Pella, Iowa
