Gingerbread Trifle

"This tasty dessert was a hit when I served it to our Bible study group," reports Betty Kleberger of Florissant, Missouri. "It's a wonderful blend of flavors and a great ending to holiday meals." If you don't have leftover gingerbread, bake some from a boxed mix to assemble this trifle.

    I made this using my mother's recipe for gingerbread. Delicious!!!!! I'd make gingerbread again just to make this recipe.

    Big hit at the Christmas party. I used 2 puddings too and put a 2nd layer of Heath crunchies before the whipped cream like someone suggested. Delicious! Betty Crocker makes a Gingerbread cake mix thats what i use for the cake instead of from scratch, saves some time.

    This is very easy to make and I got great compliments on it. However, I added another box of pudding because using only one box was too skimpy. Also, I added more Heath bar crunch after the second layer of pudding and just sprinkled a little on top of the Cool Whip for decoration.

    Served this at my teachers' sorority and it was a huge hit. They were so impressed by the taste and how simple it was to assemble.
