Chocolate Peppermint Trifle~Guest Post by: One Creative Mommy~

Hi, everyone!  I’m Heidi, the sometimes scatterbrained—but always creative—mind behind   I’m a retired teacher and stay-at-home mom who loves to create.  I enjoy designing things to help my kids learn and to help my family get organized, but I also love to create things just for fun!  On my website, I combine those hobbies.  So, if you are looking for creative ideas for your kids and home, free printables, and lots of tutorials, is the place to visit.  You’ll even find recipes.  Because my daughter has celiac disease, I blog gluten-free every Monday.

I am thrilled to be guest posting here on SaltTree.  Thanks so much to Amber for inviting me!  Are you ready for a super easy and super tasty holiday recipe?  Here you go!

Holiday Chocolate Peppermint Trifle


  • 1 Recipe of your favorite chocolate cake–baked and cooled
  • 1 large box of chocolate pudding (+milk)–prepared according to package directions (wait for cake to cool before you prepare the pudding)
  • 1 large tub of whipped topping
  • 1/2 – 1 pkg Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips
  • 5 peppermint Candy Canes–crushed


Cut cooled cake into cubes.  Cover the bottom of your bowl with cake pieces.  Top with 1/2 of the pudding.  Top with up to 1/2 of the whipped topping.  Sprinkle with candy cane and Andes peppermint bits (up to 1/2 of the mix–depending on how minty you like it).  Repeat the layers.


*You can easily use only Andes or only candy canes.  Both are equally yummy!

Whether you need dessert for your Christmas party or dessert for one or two, this recipe has you covered.  You can make a full recipe or just a small one.  It can be layered in almost anything!   . . .  a giant mug . . . a mason jar . . .

Freeze individual portions for later, or add a ribbon and a cute jar topper for a great gift to a friend or neighbor.   Download my Starlight Mint Mason Jar Lid Free Printable at

I’ve have loved visiting SaltTree today.  I hope you’ll all stop in and see me at  You’re invited to join me each week for my Gluten Free Monday and One Creative Weekend linky parties.  Merry Christmas!

    Sorry everyone who is reading this. I made a mistake in my post and typed the link to the free printable incorrectly. Just in case Amber doesn’t have time to fix it right away, here is the correct link: Starlight Mint Mason Jar Lid Free Printable

    Sorry about that!
