Mint Chocolate Trifles

These Mint Chocolate Trifles are the perfect little dessert for a St. Patrick’s Day party!

With layers of crushed Oreo cookies, cream cheese, chocolate pudding, and whipped cream, it’s a party in your mouth! I’ve been making it for my Grandkids for St. Patrick’s Day for the past few years and they just can’t get enough of this.

And if you want to keep it simple, you can make this dish in a 9″x13″ pan as well, and call it “Mint Chocolate Lasagna” for a twist.
