Irish Creme Chocolate Trifle

I was given a bottle of Irish cream liqueur as a gift and had leftover peppermint candy, so I created this delicious trifle. It's always rich and decadent. —Margaret Wilson, Sun City, California

    Why did the author say she came up with this recipe because she was given a bottle of liqueur as a gift, and then there's no liqueur in the actual recipe? Is there a reason the actual Irish Cream liqueur doesn't work instead of non-dairy creamer? They are hardly equal in quality or taste.

    It us ok. But too fatty for me to consume. Too much heavy cream and loaded of cholesterol

    This is one of those " Oh, my goodness" recipes. It combines the best of everything for a rich and decadent dessert! I will make it again for our St. Patrick's day celebration!

    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.

    I totally forgot to put the Andes chips in the dessert so I just threw them all on top! It was delicious anyway and I will make it again!
