Mint Cookie Trifle

When I first saw this recipe, the name caught my eye because it was inspired by the famous Thin Mints that Girl Scouts sell. It was called "Thin Mint Trifle". First of all, I didn't know what a trifle was but I didn't even care. It looked delicious. (A trifle is a dessert dish made from thick custardfruitsponge cake, fruit juice or jelly, and whipped cream. These ingredients are usually arranged in layers) This dessert took me literally less than 10 minutes to make. It only has 4 ingredients and it tastes like a mint festival in your mouth. I substituted the Thin Mints for Mint Dipped Oreo s which you can find at almost any store. You can also try Keebler Grasshopper Fudge Mint Cookies and they taste very similar  The only reason I didn't use Thin Mints is because I couldn't find a girl scout at the moment, so I decided to settle for Mint Oreo's which were actually amazing. Anyway this is a unique, fun find and I wanted to share it with you all. xoxo!
