Grasshopper Trifle

Grasshopper Trifle is a showstopper. Beautiful to look at and even better to eat. Layers of chocolate cake, mint filling, and lots of freshly whipped cream.

Grasshopper Trifle
Grasshopper Trifle is one of my favorite desserts ever. I love the mint chocolate combination and this trifle takes it to a whole new level. This dessert is as beautiful as it is tasty. The beauty of this dessert is that it tastes better the longer that it sits. Perfect for a make ahead summer dessert.
