    So, one of my favorite pies is actually storebought (gasp! I know!) from Market Day. It is a chocolate peppermint pie that is pretty much a minty french silk pie. In my quest for the perfect December recipe, I was thinking a trifle using brownies and this minty-chocolate stuff and candy canes would be pretty darn yummy too! Does anyone have a recipe for something like this? I am pretty sure I can figure one out, but why recreate the wheel, right? If you have a recipe similar, please, share!

    How weird, I read your post, didn't know of a recipe, then went and read the diabetic post and here was this recipe! Just for you!!!

    Chocolate Peppermint Trifle.

    2 boxes sugar free chocolate pudding - the darker the better!
    milk to make the two boxes MINUS 1/2 cup. You want this thick and rich!
    1/4 tsp. peppermint extract
    1 8 ounce container sugar free whipped topping
    about 8 sugar free peppermint candies

    Make the pudding and add the extract. Try it. You may want more extract but a little goes a long way
    Layer 1/2 the angel food cake, 1/2 of the pudding, 1/2 the whipped topping. Do it again!!! Refrigerate if possible, 1 hour. To serve crush the candies very finely with the Meat Tenderizer and sprinkle over the top.
    This is a big hit for the Holidays and no, you do not have to make it sugar free!

    Here is one of my favs:

    Andes Trifle:

    You can either use the Andes Peppermint chips or the Dementh Green/chocolate chip mints from Andes (I have found in Baking section at Dollar General and at Walmart.)
    4 cups milk
    2 small boxes of white Chocolate instant pudding/pie filling
    2 8 oz containers of regular Cool whip
    1 box of Dark Chocolate Brownie mix. Prepare in stone. On Large bar pan bake 22 min. On med. 30 min. Let completely cool. Then using $1.25 paring knife cut into small cubes.
    Fill up your easy accent decorator with coolwhip. Mix 2 boxes of pudding with 4 cups cold milk. After whisking till thickens add your 1 1/2 containers of coolwhip. In Trifle bowl Layer first Half of your Brownie cubes, then pudding, then Andes chips. Then repeat. Top with coolwhip dollops and accent with Andes Peppermint. I also demoed grating with the cheese grater or Microplaner one and dusted the top.
