Hi My Cooking Spot readers! I’m Jenna from A Savory Feast. Today I’m popping in with a decadent and delicious holiday dessert.


My family got together to celebrate Christmas last week, since it was the only time we would all be in town at the same time this month. Andrew and I were so excited to be able to host everyone in our new home! I’ve been looking for an excuse to use my trifle bowl, so I decided to create a holiday trifle.

Peppermint is one of my favorite flavors. I recently used it to create a recipe for Peppermint Cream Cheese Frosted Brownies. I loved how the brownie and peppermint tasted together, so I decided to use it in my trifle.

This dessert looks impressive, but it’s actually quite simple to make. Mix up a batch of brownies, crush a couple candy canes and make a bowl of chocolate pudding. All you have to do is layer these ingredients along with cool whip and you’re done!

I wasn’t sure if everyone in my family liked peppermint, so I just sprinkled the peppermint on the top. That left the bottom layers peppermint-free in case anyone wanted that. If you have a crowd of peppermint fans, you  can add more layers of crushed candy canes!
