Ingredients

  • 1 Cup heavy cream
  • 3 Tablespoons super fine sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons Chambord
  • gingerbread cake
  • 1 Pint fresh blackberries
  • push pop containers
  • candied ginger

Directions

Method: Place cream and sugar in a mixing bowl and whip. Fold the Chambord into the whipped cream. Using circular cookie cutters, cut the gingerbread into small circles a bit smaller than the mouth of the push pop container. Layer the gingerbread cake, blackberries and whipped cream in the push pop container, alternating each layer. Top off each trifle with whiped cream and garnish with candied ginger and fresh blackberries.

Instructions: Fill a low dish 3/4 of the way with plain white rice. Place the filled push pop containers with the stem facing downward in the rice so that they stand up straight.

Gingerbread Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Gingerbread Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
