Chocolate Mint Oreo Cookie Trifle


My munchkin has been raving about the Copycat Shamrock Shake that I made for her and Chad a few weeks ago.  Although she doesn't indulge in sweets that often I thought it would be fun to make her another shake.  But, when I reached in the freezer for the ice cream...  It was gone.  Oh no.  I don't like making promises and not keeping them.

Being the resourceful mom that I am, I pulled out some of our favorite trifle ingredients; Oreos and pudding.  I immediately got started on a minty treat that we would all love.

A layer of cool mint Oreo cookies, topped  with chocolate pudding, Andes mints and mint whipped cream was PERFECT!  Honestly I am not usually even a mint lover, but this trifle is AMAZING!  Creamy pudding and whipped cream are the perfect contrast for the crunchy Oreo cookies and melt in your mouth Andes mints.  You are going to love it too!  Enjoy.

Chocolate Mint Oreo Cookie Trifle
serves 4

12 OREO Cool Mint Cookies, chopped
1 (3.9 oz) package JELL-O Chocolate Fudge Pudding
2 cups cold milk
2 cups heavy whipping cream
¼ cup powdered sugar
1½ teaspoons pure mint extract
OPTIONAL:  8 drops green food coloring
20 Andes Mints, chopped

Beat pudding mix and 2 cups cold milk with an electric mixer (or whisk) for about 2 minutes.  Refrigerate until ready to assemble.

Whip heavy cream using an electric mixer with a whisk attachment until you can see light tracks from the mixer.  Add powdered sugar and continue to whip.  Add mint and coloring.  Mix until whipped cream can hold a peak.  (Lift mixer up and there is a tip of cream on the mixer).  Refrigerate until ready to assemble.

Chop Oreos and Andes mints.  Set aside.

Assemble:  Add ¼ of Oreos to the bottom of each trifle dish.  Spoon ¼ of pudding directly on top of Oreos.  Reserve a tablespoon of chopped mints.  Add ¼ of remaining mints to trifle, directly on top of pudding.  Top with whipped cream.  Sprinkle with reserved mints.

Serve and enjoy!

  3. The recipe calls for two cups of milk but it says to add three cups of milk to the pudding mix. Typo?

  6. I tried the chocolate mint trifle and instead of using trifle dishes I used a 9x13 and added a little more of oreos, mints, and it was the rave of the day at work, and serves more people. Thanks for a very wonderful desert!!

  8. Can I replace the "1 (3.9 oz) package JELL-O Chocolate Fudge Pudding" with something else, like another chocolate fudge mix?
