I’ve got an easy, no-bake, make-ahead holiday dessert recipe to share! It’s a layered cookie trifle, made with layers of whipped cream, chocolate mousse, and chocolate chip cookies. The ingredients get layered in a big bowl, and then finished on top with some of Fancypants Bakery snowman cookies for a festive decoration (I added some rosemary sprigs for little wintry “pine trees” too!). Get the full recipe below:

No-Bake Holiday Cookie Trifle.
  • 1 Cup of Chocolate Chips
  • 4 Cups of Heavy Cream, divided
  • ¼ Cup of Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Tsp of Vanilla Extract
  • 3 Bags of Fancypants Bakery Upcycled Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Fancypants Bakery Snowman cookies and Rosemary Sprigs, for decorating
  1. In a bowl, combine chocolate chips and ½ cup of heavy cream. Heat in the microwave in 30 second increments, whisking in between increments until the chocolate is fully melted. Set aside and cool completely.
  2. While the chocolate is cooling, combine the rest of the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a stand mixer and whip until stiff peaks form.
  3. Remove half of the whipped cream and set aside in a bowl. Carefully fold the cooled chocolate mixture into the remaining whipped cream until combined.
  4. Assemble the trifle by layering the bag of the chocolate chip cookies, then half of the whipped cream, another bag of the chocolate chip cookies, the chocolate mousse, a final bag of the chocolate chip cookies, and then the remaining whipped cream. Garnish with snowman cookies and rosemary, if desired. Chill until ready to serve.
