I used crumbled Oreos instead of vanilla wafers and assembled it in a trifle bowl. Decorated the top with small candy canes. Very pretty on the holiday table and it tasted great too!



Excellent, the kids love it as well as the adults!



I was on the fence about this dessert. It was very easy to make, the candy canes do melt and it tasted pretty good. It was VERY sweet and gooey with the marshmallows and I chose to sprinkle some crushed up candy canes on the top and I HATED the crunchy texture in an otherwise smooth creamy textured dessert. I would skip the candy canes on top. This was neither the worst or the best dessert, but was worth a try!
