The holidays are almost over but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some last minute treats. This easy Eggnog Trifle recipe is a perfect treat to serve during Christmas time. I was recently sent a couple of coupons for Shamrock Farms Holiday Eggnog and I knew I wanted to use the eggnog to make a delicious dessert. Shamrock farms is local to Phoenix and we’ve always loved their eggnog. We probably buy at least 10 large bottles each Christmas. The eggnog combined with the vanilla pudding and the gingerbread makes this the ultimate dessert. Plus it’s perfect to make right before your holiday party!
These eggnog trifles only take about 10 minutes to make these treats if you already have the whipped cream whipped up and the gingerbread made. If you need a gingerbread recipe you can make this one or just buy a box in-store and whip it up! I love serving them in mason jars because then you can easily make them single serving sized. You can also double the recipe size and serve them in a trifle dish.
