Snickerdoodle Trifle November 13, 2010

Tonight we are headed to my parents’ house to watch both the Clemson (GO TIGERS!) and Carolina games. Mom is making a huge meal and having some fun folks over for a fun time. My assignment- bring a dessert. Which is my usual assignment and doesn’t sound too hard, right? Welll…. I’m good at buttery, sugary, rich, over the top desserts. I’ve got plenty of those memorized that I can whip together at a moments notice. But tonight’s dessert needs to be figure-friendly. Pretty much everyone in my family is on some sort of diet or exercise plan and trying to lose weight. So that makes my dessert assignment a little more difficult. I searched Weight Watchers site for recipes. But then I found a snickerdoodle cupcake recipe I decided on (I’d switch the sugars out for Splenda).

But then I got to thinking about the most diet friendly dessert ever- trifles. But I was really sold on my snickerdoodle and cinnamony goodness. So I was stuck. Then the lightbulb switched on- DING DING DING! we have a winner. Why not a snickerdoodle trifle?

Snickerdoodle Trifle (diet-friendly)

  • 1 premade angel food cake (homemade or store bought)
  • 2 small packages of sugar-free, fat-free white chocolate instant jello pudding
  • 4 cups of skim milk
  • 1 T cinnamon
  • 1/4 t. ground cloves
  • 3 snack pack sized sugar-free, fat-free caramel jello pudding
  • 2 small containers of Cool Whip Free
  • Premade snickerdoodles (homemade or store bought

Cut the angel food cake into 1″ cubes.

Mix white chocolate pudding mix into 4 cups of milk and refrigerate for 5 minutes. Mix cinnamon, ground cloves, and caramel pudding into white chocolate pudding mixture.

Chop snickerdoodles.

In a trifle bowl, layer 1/2 of the angel food cake cubes, then pudding mixture, then 1/2 of the chopped snickerdoodles, and 1 tub of cool whip. For the second layer, repeat but reserve some of your snickerdoodles to decorate the top. Refrigerate for a few hours before serving to let flavors settle in.

    The cookies pictured look more like ginger snaps than snickerdoodles. Are they homemade or store-bought? I think ginger snaps would be really good in this.

    I made this and it was delicious. Did you ever find out the Weight watchers points? How many servings or how much are in the recipe? 3/4 cup, 1 cup, etc.
