How to Make Gingerbread and Caramel Trifle

  1. Heat 2 cups of milk over medium-low heat. Add the sugar and whisk it.
  2. Mix the vanilla pudding with the remaining milk until the ingredients combine. Mix everything and pour it over the heated milk. Whisk, and continue cooking the pudding according to the instructions on the package.
  3. For the caramel, heat a saucepan over medium heat. Add the sugar, and cook it until it melts, and it turns a caramel-like color. Remove it from the heat, and mix it with butter, salt, and milk. Mix until smooth.
  4. For the whipping cream, pour the heavy cream into a large bowl. Add the sugar, vanilla extract, and cinnamon. Set up your mixer and mix until the mixture thickens and stiff peaks appear.
  5. Break half of the gingerbread cookies into crumbles and lay them on the bottom of a large bowl. Start assembling the trifle.
  6. Pour the pudding over the cookie crumbles and add the gingerbread cookies. Top with 1/2 of the whipped cream and level it with a spatula. Add the caramel, level, and finish it with the remaining whipped cream.
