    I was was expecting an overly peppermint flavor, however, I was pleasantly pleased that it was just a light and refreshing peppermint. I thought it was great all by itself.

    I loved the pale pink color of the pudding, but I added 3 drops of McCormick Neon Pink food coloring to pump up the pink factor. My Little Cup loved the pink colors and thought it was a really pretty dessert. I agree, it was a very pretty dessert.

    How to serve it

    This colorful dessert ist best served in glasses or dessert bowls, so all the colors and layers can really shine. If you prefer, you can also prepare the layer dessert in a casserole dish and serve it like a trifle. In this case, everyone takes a portion on their plate.

    Also try our Pumpkin Cheesecake, Chocolate Cherry Trifle, or Chocolate Coconut Pound Cake.
