Ok, I just had to name this special Christmas Eve dessert after my first new grandchild Evelyn Rose and thus I had to put this precious new picture of her on as the main pic to! Sorry, I just could not help myself! She just takes my breath away! I love her so much! And I hope you enjoy this delicious dessert as well! I added a picture of the real treat also. This is a dessert you will want to try, as it is delightful! ***In honor of my little angel, Evelyn Rose.

How To Make special christmas eve*lyn eggnog tiramisu trifle

  • 1
    Using a blender or food processor, grind up chocolate chips into almost a powder. In a mixer, blend together the cream cheese, cool whip, pudding and eggnog.
  • 2
    Layer the bottom of a trifle dish or large glass bowl with vanilla wafers. Sprinkle with some of the coffee (just enough so each cookie is moistened but not drowning). Top with a layer (roughly 1-2 inches thick) of the pudding mixture.
  • 3
    Sprinkle some chocolate chip powder over pudding. Sprinkle broken up pieces of toffee candy on top of chocolate chip powder.
  • 4
    Repeat layers until your bowl is full, or you run out of ingredients. Make sure the top layer is the pudding mixture, sprinkled with a bunch of chocolate chip powder and toffee candy, for presentation. There is not an exact science to this. The pudding layer can really be as thick or as thin as you want. It all ends up creaming together in the end. Cover the trifle bowl with plastic wrap and let sit in the fridge overnight. The cookies will need to soften into a cake-like texture. Let it sit in the fridge overnight. The next day, its ready - dig in!
