This Witches Brew Spumoni Trifle is the perfect dessert for your Halloween potluck. A trifle consisting of layers of cake, pistachio pudding, whipped cream and cherry almond cream cheese, topped with mint eyeballs, bubbles and jello worms, this dessert is both scary -looking and delicious!
*** Make the worms a day in advance, as they need to set overnight (see recipe below)
Make pistachio pudding, as per package instructions.
Beat whipping cream to soft peaks and then add white granulated sugar. Beat to stiff peaks.
Beat cream cheese for 30 seconds, then add cherries and beat until smooth. Add almonds
Assemble: break the cake up and put in bottom of cauldron or trifle dish. Add ½ the pistachio pudding, then top that with cream cheese cherry mixture. Add all the whipped cream, then top with remainder of pistachio pudding.
Draw black circle on white mints with edible black markers. Draw red lines for bloodshot eyes, if desired. Or use jumbo candy eyes.
Add green mints and small candy eye mints to the top of the trifle.
Add a little oreo cookie crumbs under the worms and sprinkle a little on top, if desired. Serve.
💭 Top tipThe worms take an investment of prep time, but they are well worth it if you are going for that gross look. In fact, I consider them the crowning glory on this Halloween trifle! *** Make the worms a day in advance, as they need to set overnight*NOTE: if mints are left on the trifle the mint flavor will seep in to the dish . If you like mints, then you can put them on in advance. If you do not like mints, then put them on just prior to serving!🍽 EquipmentYou don't need any special equipment to make this recipe, but it definitely makes it look even cooler when you use a cauldron!
