Mini Chocolate Mint Cake Crumble Trifles
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 4 trifles
  • 1 box chocolate cake mix (I used Pillsbury Supreme Dark Chocolate)
  • 1 can of diet coke (diet Dr. Pepper or Pepsi work too)
  • ½ tsp mint extract, divided
  • 2 ½ cups Fat Free cool whip
  • ¼ tsp green food coloring
  • Sprinkles (optional)
  1. In a large bowl, mix the diet coke, ¼ tsp mint extract and cake mix together. Stir until all the lumps are gone.
  2. Transfer cake batter to a 9 x 13 cake pan. Or spread the mix out on a large baking sheet lined with tin foil and sprayed with cooking spray. This is the method I used. Cook the cake according to the instructions on the box. My cooking time was about 25 minutes.
  3. While the cake is baking, mix the cool whip, ¼ tsp mint extract, and green food coloring. Stir until the mixture is incorporated and light minty green in color.
  4. Once the cake is baked, take out of the oven and let it sit for a few minutes.
  5. Using a fork, break up half of the cake into small chunks and crumbles.
  6. To build the trifles, layer a small amount of cake crumbles (about a heaping tablespoon) on the bottom of each glass.
  7. Add a layer of cool whip (about a ¼ cup) on top of the cake crumbles. Note that the cake crumble and cool whip amounts may vary depending on the size of your dessert glasses.
  8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 twice until you have 6 layers total. Top the trifles with spinkles.
