Gingerbread Eggnog Trifle

Christmas is only 2 days away ! It is the most wonderful time of the year, but it can also be the craziest time of the year ! Shopping, baking, cooking, decorating…..I think we all wish we had 48 hours in a day ! But to me, spending time with family and friends is more important and is the best Christmas gift of all ! So, I decided to make this quick dessert so I can have more time snuggling with my kids after dinner ! Gingerbread and eggnog ! Nothing says Christmas more than these two  flavours together and it’s so simple to make ! You can even get the kids to make their own dessert !  Have a very Merry Christmas everyone !
