Cadbury Egg Inspired Easter Trifle (Video)

Cadbury Egg Inspired Easter Trifle is the ultimate Easter dessert. A simple 5-ingredient recipe that is ready in just 10 minutes, it doesn't get much better than that!

I can’t even begin to count all my Easter dessert favorites but Easter Crockpot Candy and Best Ever Carrot Cake top the list.

Easter Dessert Trifle
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 it's 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.  Voila, 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!

    1. What a fabulous line up- I'm making a trifle!!
      Mary x

    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!

    3. For your Cadbury trifle, what kind of chocolate did you add? Also, I guessing you used easter Oreos? Thanks and I love your blog!

    4. For your Cadbury Trifle, what kind of chocolate did you add? Also, I'm guessing you used Easter Oreos? Thanks and I love your blog!

      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!

    6. The Easter Egg Trifle has to be the ultimate Easter dessert! A must try!

    7. OMG these look so yummy! My husband loves Cadbury eggs!

    8. These ALL look good, but especially the Cadbury eggs!! Pinning this to try some of these trifles, thanks for sharing! I found your site through the Pin Me Link Party. New follower!

    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!

    11. will this recipe fit into one average size trifle dish? (I'm new to trifles but this looks far to good not to try!!)

    12. This may be really good, but it is not a trifle, in the same way that not every recipe that has spaghetti noodles in is Italian.

    13. These all look great! It looks like you made individual trifles. Where do you buy the individual trifle bowls?

    14. Love ur ideas. Eager to try it.

    15. How much of each would I need to make one big full size?

    16. I saw this and HAD to make it - but I had a problem... I wanted to make a full-size trifle. DEFINITELY use mini marshmallows - the regular size were too difficult to melt.

      Here's what I used:
      1st layer (bottom): 1 entire package of Spring Oreos (chopped as in video)
      2nd layer: 7c. marshmallows + 1/4c. water (melt in microwave, let cool slightly before adding)
      3rd layer: one prepared and chilled 5.1 oz. box of vanilla pudding

      4th layer: 1/2 package of chopped Spring Oreos
      5th layer: 2.5c. marshmallow + 1/4c. water (melt in microwave as before & let cool slightly) ***SAVE SOME MARSHMALLOW and Vanilla pudding FOR THE "EGG" on top***
      6th layer: 1 prepared and chilled 3.4 oz. box of vanilla pudding.
      Top with 1 chopped Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate bar, made the "egg" out of leftover marshmallow and pudding, added 1 Cadbury egg (the egg had the top 1/3 cut off), and I added spring-colored sprinkles to the "egg".

      Shopping List:
      2 packages oreos
      one 5.1oz box and one 3.4oz box of vanilla pudding
      2 bags mini marshmallows
