Irish Creme Chocolate Trifle Recipe

Irish Creme Chocolate Trifle Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 30 min. + chilling YIELD:16 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package devil's food cake mix (regular size)

  • 3-1/2 cups cold milk
  • 2 packages (3.9 ounces each) instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 3 cups whipped topping
  • 12 mint Andes candies, chopped

"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."

"Due to my high blood sugar, totally lightened up the recipe. With the exception of the Andes mint chips and Irish creme liqueur, everything light or sugar-free but still good. Light and refreshing."

"Made this for a birthday celebration at work and it was a HUGE hit. I followed the recipe as stated and used the Andes mints for the candy part.

My co-workers and I think just a slight drizzle of caramel between the layers would put this over the top!
Thanks for a great keeper! My boss has already requested that I make this for her birthday. :)"

"this was my first trifle recipe. I found the cake to be too wet, maybe a brownie would have more substance. But then not sure if I could still poke holes and add the creme. BTW I substituted the creamer for real baileys, the flavor was good, not too strong, just the cake was too wet. And it certainly should be eaten in one sitting because the next day it was all mush. I recommend individual servings instead of all in one bowl, that way you can ensure no leftovers."

"My entire family loved this recipe, and my son enjoyed cooking this with me. I had to change a couple ingredients so they were reduced sugar. I think the next time I will alter the ingredients so that there is less fat as well. I especially liked the way the cake soaked up the Irish creme."
