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.
With love from our Kitchen Table to yours!
