I made both of these for the first time yesterday to take to dinner at my in-laws along with the peanut butter trifle and mini carrot cakes. There latter two were a breeze to make. The first two gave me a ton of trouble! So maybe someone can tell me where I went wrong... The banana trifle from the current SB- there was not nearly enough of the pudding mixture to complete the layers and the trifle bowl was only a little over half full when I had used up my ingredients. I ended up adding a 5th banana, 6 more crushed crackers and making up another box of pudding + whip topping, because I wanted to fill the bowl at least 3 quarters of the way full. The mint triangles I had never done either but had tasted them at a mtg when another consultant brought them. So it calls for 2 packs of cookies which made a really thick layer of crust in the med sheet pan. Then is says you could use almond bark or the candy coating melts. So I have no idea where to get almond bark, I usually use the candy melts and get those from Michael's the craft store. I assume you are supposed to use white because it also says to add 6 drops of green food coloring. I did not have white on hand but I did have a pack of green so I thought I'd try that and omit the food coloring. I thought that maybe with the white cream cheese the green would lighten up... but it did not. The color it self wasn't too appetizing :yuck: because it was such a dark kelly green color. However the color was the least of my problems. When combined, the cream cheese and candy melts were thick and ooozzy. My kids said it looked like Flubber...you know, the disney movie...and it did! The picture shows the top layer being applied with a spreader but no need for that. Mine just poured right on. I don't think it fully set up like it should have either. They were a pain to cut into because the green stuff was soft and would stick all over the mini serving spatula. The green layer was very thin as well. In the picture they are about the same thickness, the choc crust and the light green top layer. Somewhere I went wrong but the color of the candy coating melts really should not have mattered right? Anyone ever have these troubles????
