Bailey's Mint Irish Creme Trifle

Last night we went to a Christmas dessert potluck. I made this delicious Bailey's Mint Irish Cream Trifle, although I didn't have a proper trifle dish so it was more like a bi-ful! LOL!

Bailey's Mint Irish Cream Trifle

Devil's Food cake mix
1 cup Bailey's Mint Irish Cream
2 packages instant chocolate pudding mix
3.5 cups milk
large container of Cool Whip
Peppermint Candy

Bake the Devil's Food cake in a 9x13 according to the directions. When it's cooled a little bit poke holes in the cake and pour the Bailey's in the holes. Refrigerate. We let ours sit overnight. Prepare the pudding with the milk and let it sit a few minutes to set. Make sure the Cool Whip has defrosted a little bit too. Crush your candy. I used green & red striped candy canes, but you can use Andes baking pieces, Keebler Grasshopper cookies or similar. You can even ditch the mint part of it all.

Divide each layer (cake, pudding, Cool Whip, candy) in thirds and layer them. Refrigerate for a little bit before you serve. Rich & delicious!!
