MOPS Recipes: Christin’s Pumpkin Trifle


Christin has brought this Pumpkin Trifle to MOPS events like our Thanksgiving Pot Luck and Christmas Party. She was kind enough to share the recipe!


  • 2 cans pumpkin
  • 2 packages vanilla instant pudding
  • 1 tub Cool Whip
  • 3 cups milk
  • spice cake mix
  • 3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 8-10 ginger snap cookies, crumbled
  • 9 whole ginger snap cookies for additional garnish, if desired


  1. Mix one can of pumpkin with the spice cake mix and bake in a greased 9×12 metal pan for approximately 23 minutes.
  2. Combine the pudding mix with the milk, the other can of pumpkin, and the pumpkin pie spice.
  3. When the cake is cool, crumble it into small pieces.
  4. In a trifle bowl or other similar container, layer the ingredients, as follows: 1/2 of the cake, followed by 1/2 of the pudding mixture, followed by 1/2 of the Cool Whip. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the ginger snap crumbles. Repeat one more time with remaining ingredients.
  5. Garnish with the whole ginger snap cookies, if desired. Serve, or chill and serve when desired.

Here’s a tip: Christin says it’s even more delicious if you let it chill overnight.

Let us know if you try this recipe. Enjoy!
