Cadbury Egg Inspired Easter Trifle


My “Ode to the Cadbury Egg, Trifle”.  This is one that I knocked out of the park; a fabulous dessert that you are not going to want to share.  A simple 5 ingredient recipe that is ready in just 10 minutes!  

I can’t even begin to count all my food favorites or food that I have a ‘thing’ for…  First and foremost I have a cheese ‘thing’, I also have a bread thing, I have a lemon ‘thing’,  I have a sun-dried tomato ‘thing’, I have a pasta ‘thing’… 

Ok, well believe it or not I am not the only one in this house with a food obsession.  Chad has a thing for Cadbury eggs.  Come to think of it, when I first met him Cadbury eggs were about the only food in his freezer.  He had a lot.  Apparently he learned about stocking up from the bears, because he was good to go for the winter.


Now we save freezer space for practical things like bacon and cheese.  {{don’t judge, hehe}} So, when I noticed my big bear stocking up for the winter with his eggs, I decided to create a trifle inspired by his love for Cadbury Eggs.

I started with a layer of my favorite cookie.  Well, it’s a trifle of course its all about what I want.  Just kidding, no not really.  After the Oreo layer, I decided we needed to mimic the fondant like filling of the Cadbury egg and I knew I was not whipping out the stand mixer for a trifle.

Creating my own homemade marshmallow fluff proved to be fabulously rewarding.  All I did was add a little water to the mini marshmallows and microwaved them.  Viola, marshmallow fluff!  On top of that I added vanilla pudding (which, luckily is yellow).  Then a layer of chocolate and more marshmallow fluff.  Tada! 

My “Ode to the Cadbury Egg, Trifle”.  This is one that I knocked out of the park; a fabulous dessert that you are not going to want to share.  With a mere 5 ingredients and 10 minutes this trifle can be yours! 

With love from our kitchen table to yours.

==============================================================

Cadbury Egg Inspired Easter Trifle
serves 4 personal sized trifles

12 Oreo Cookies (I used Spring variety)
4 cups marshmallows (about 2/3 of a 16 ounce bag)
2 tablespoons water
1 (3.4 ounce) box French vanilla pudding
2 cups cold milk
6 ounces milk chocolate, chopped

Pour marshmallows into a large microwave safe bowl, drizzle water over top.  Microwave for 1 minute.  Remove and whisk to combine.  Set aside.

Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl combine pudding mix and milk.  Beat with whisk for 2 minutes.  Place in refrigerator until ready to use.

Chop Oreo’s and add to the bottom of four trifle dishes.  Chop chocolate and set aside.  Add about ¼ cup marshmallow to trifle, over top of Oreo’s.  Top marshmallow with pudding.  Add about ½ cup per dish. Sprinkle with chopped chocolate and finish with a dollop of marshmallow.

Serve and enjoy!

Cook’s note:  If you would like some extra color, add a few drops of yellow food coloring to your marshmallow and whip.  Then top trifle with yellow marshmallow.

  2. I just don't know which one I would make first! I am with you on the 'thing' I have a lemon thing right now that is probably because I overbought lemons and still have so many! Yum!

    1. I did use the Easter Oreos, but any would be perfect. I chose semisweet chocolate because I had that on hand. Hope that helps.

  5. I really loved the Easter Egg Trifle, but then I made the mistake of scrolling down and seeing the mint one. THAT one is going on my 'to make' list. Thank you for the cute Easter ideas!

  9. This is amazing. A childhood favorite with a much more adult spin. Although I'm sure my three-year-old would eat this happily.

  10. Wow! How far in advance do you think I could make these beauties? I'm having a big group for Easter dinner. Thanks!

    1. The marshmallow sits on the cookies and separates the pudding so you could make these several days ahead. Just remember that the marshmallow will harden in the fridge so you will want to allow it 30 minutes on the counter to soften a bit. Enjoy!
