Oooh la la! My most faaaaaaaaavorite part about fall is seeing all the canned pumpkin on the end caps at grocery stores. Is that weird?! Maybe, but I almost always snag one can when I see them. Walking through Walmart this time, I spied pumpkin spice pudding! Hello, jello! I tossed it in the cart, along with some yummy seasonal cinnamon chips (okay, I may have bought 2 bags of these!) to see what deliciousness I could create it with and sure enough, a scrumptious dessert was born… introducing the pumpkin spice cinnamon chip trifle:
I love this trifle because it only requires a handful of ingredients and wasn’t time consuming. Win-win for this busy momma!
Want to try it?
- 1 package pumpkin spice pudding
- 1/2 cup cinnamon chips, frozen
- 1 cup cinnamon graham cracker crumbs
- 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
- 3/4 cup butter, melted
- 2 cups whipped topping
- Prepare pudding according to package directions.
- Finely chop frozen cinnamon chips.
- In a large bowl, stir together graham cracker crumbs, brown sugar, cinny chips and pumpkin pie spice. Add melted butter and stir to combine.
- Spread mixture on a baking sheet, and bake in oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until the top looks toasted, let cool.
- After graham cracker crumb mixture is cooled, layer 1/2 in the bottom of a trifle dish, large glass bowl or individual dessert glasses.
- Spoon 1/2 of pumpkin spice jello over crumb crust, and top with 1/2 of whipped topping. Repeat crumb-crust and pumpkin spice jello layers, reserving remaining whipped topping.
- Refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight.
- Prior to serving, garnish trifle with remaining whipped topping and sprinkle with cinnamon chips and a dash of pumpkin pie spice.
- Serve at once and enjoy!
I think I’m going to make these for Thanksgiving dessert but I’ll make it in a large trifle bowl instead of the cute individual mini trifle bowls as shown.
