Candyfetti Mini Trifles

 

Have you tried Candyfetti from Sweets Indeed yet?  Well…if you haven’t you are missing out!  It’s sweet and sour, crunchy and chewy.  Perfect to eat on it’s own or to sprinkle on cupcakes, ice cream, pancakes…anything your little heart desires really.

We used Candyfetti to make mini trifles for our upcoming Valentine’s Day party!  And let me tell you,  they were a hit by our taste testers!   You can make them too, just follow the recipe below:

Supplies

  • Plastic shot glasses
  • Cute spoons

Ingredients

  • Box of cake mix
  • Frosting
  • Candyfetti

I use the term “trifle” pretty loosely.  If you want to make a traditional trifle you could add custard and fruit, but since these cups are so small I just used frosting!  Make the cake according to the directions.  Once you take it out of the oven and let it cool, cut the cake in half length wise.

Using a shot glass cut out cake circles.

Place a dollop of frosting in the bottom of a clean shot glass and then sprinkle on some Candyfetti.

So many new things at the shop! Where to begin?

Let’s start by cooling down with an exceptional glass of cold iced tea from Steven Smith Teamaker. Each uniquely blended sachet makes one quart. One sip of this fabulous tea and you’ll know why we called it exceptional. Choose from black tea or green tea.

If you’re like me you can’t go camping and not have s’mores! We’ve got the most delicious S’mores Kits from Madyson’s Marshmallows in the shop right now. The kits come with nice and crispy Moravian sugar cookies, marshmallows, matches, and roasting sticks. You want to know the best part? The chocolate is actually inside the marshmallows, so it melts as your mallow is roasting. How genius is that?!
