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

"Happy this popped up as I lost the recipe and couldn't remember where I found it. My friend always wants me to bring this...Christmas, birthday, whatever. I use the green striped mints crushed in the layers and on top. Adds a little crunch and pretty."

"This has become a St Patrick's Day tradition in our house. My whole family loves it. I have had to substitute out vanilla creamer because I can't always find the Irish Creme flavor, and it still came out great. We have used lots of different candies in this rather than the mint candies since my kids don't like mint."

"Absolutely Delicious! In place of a carton of whipped topping...I made my own mint flavored whipped cream, by adding 1/2 cup of powdered rsugar, green food coloring, and 1/2 teaspoon of mint extract to 2 cups of whipping cream!"

"Big hit with co-workers. I made it with the Flavored creamer and it was really good so im sure using Baileys Irish Cream would be awsome."
