For Christmas as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias, I made this easy and delicious Holiday Recipe called Kahlua & Cream Trifle with ingredients found at Price Chopper Supermarkets including Betty Crocker cake mix.
One of the best things about the Christmas season is the holiday recipes. And while a prime rib or turkey might be the main course at Christmas dinner, let’s be honest; it’s the desserts that steal the show. At parties and family functions, a nice spread of holiday-themed deserts is a glorious sight. This Kahlua and Cream Trifle is a super easy, delicious recipe that is sure to get attention and rave reviews. It is chocolatey and creamy with hints of Kalhua and a bit of strawberry.
To pick up the ingredients, I took my son with me. We were also picking up items to make a a dessert that the kids were going to help me with (more on this below). On the way back from Price Chopper, my son, Andrew, asked me what I was making with the items I bought. I answered, “a trifle.” He responded “uh… like a gun?” Not exactly. So what is a trifle? Basically, using only a few ingredients and layer them in a deep glass dish in an attractive way. This was my first time making one, and it was very easy.
I made this dessert gluten-free by using a Betty Crocker gluten-free cake mix, but this can easily be made with a regular Betty Crocker chocolate cake mix as well. You can see all the ingredients that I used in the picture above, it’s very simple!
Mix the ingredients and pour into a greased baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour at 350° (use a knife or toothpick and cook cake until it comes out clean). Let cool for at least an hour.
Follow instructions on box and then add Kalhua and mix in.
And here is the finished product:
While the kids would probably also enjoy the trifle (with the exception of the 1 tsp of Kalhua in the pudding, all the alcohol will cook off while baking) it certainly has a more grown-up vibe to it. My son was much more excited about buying ingredients to make Christmas-themed Chex Muddy Buddies. If you’ve made Chex Muddy Buddies before, you would know two things about them: they are delicious, and shaking them in a bag is the most fun part of the recipe. Kids love to help with that. The recipe is basically taken from the back of the Chex box, but I added some sprinkles to give it a Christmas flair.
Funny story – the sprinkles were the last item I needed at Price Chopper, and I did not know where they were. Andrew, however, knew exactly where they were. My kids love sprinkles.
The girls LOVED to help me shake the Muddy Buddies in the plastic bags! They enjoy feeling like they are a part of making their own treats – it makes it that much more fun to eat too!
