Description

Chocolate Chip Trifle is a layered dessert, inspired by an English classic, and is a medley of cookies, fresh fruit and a creamy, custard-like filling. Delicious and attractive, too!

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. (16.5 oz.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 2 pkgs. (3.4 oz. each) vanilla or chocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix
  • 2 containers (12 oz. each) frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 1/2 quarts sliced fresh strawberries or raspberries

Directions

PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

CUT cookie dough in half lengthwise and then in half again lengthwise, for a total of 4 pieces. Cut cookie dough into 2-inch logs, ending with 16. Place on ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 9 to 11 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 1 minute; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

BEAT milk and pudding mix in large bowl until blended. Fold whipped topping into mixture. Crumble 6 cookies. Sprinkle 3/4 of crumbled cookies on bottom of a deep 10-inch glass serving dish. Top with 1/3 of pudding mixture. Place strawberries over pudding. Stand remaining 10 cookies, face side out, along the inside of dish. Place remaining pudding mixture over strawberries. Top with remaining crushed cookies. Cover; refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Garnish with fresh mint leaves and additional fruit, if desired.

Made this for our S.S. class cook-out. Wanted to share the calories of what looked like a yummy dessert! It did not disappoint me. It was a big hit! I was told I was a gourmet cook! It is actually light and delicious. Make sure cookies are cooked until crisp or they are hard to crumble.

THIS IS A SIMPLE AND GREAT HIT I'VE USED IT SEVERAL TIMES

Nice Change

by L. Linda , RIVERSIDE, CA on Apr. 2007

I brought this to our family Easter brunch. It was a nice change from regular trifle. I would layer more so the whipped topping portion was not so thick. Other than that it was great!
