Peppermint Trifle/Pie and Christmas Card Holder!

Have any Peppermint ice cream left?? I love Kroger grocery stores for several reasons, but one in particular is their sale paper. They have great sales, but at the end of it, they have a recipe, and all of the ingredients needed for the recipe are on sale that week. Well a couple of weeks ago, they included a recipe for Peppermint pie, which we turned into a trifle dish for the company we had coming over. Afterall what a better time to use the mini-triffle dishes that we were given as wedding present!

All you do is crush up some oreos to use as the crust (use just a little butter to work as a kind of glue to hold it together if making a pie). The next layer is of Peppermint Ice Cream (we softened it a little first just by leaving it on the counter for a few minutes). And the top layer is of cool whip, store in the freezer until ready to serve. Garnish with some crushed peppermint if you have some.

Very tasty treat! And cute presentation!

Now onto the Christmas Card Holder!

I just used some Christmas ribbon that I adhered to the mantle and modpodged Christmas Scrapbook paper to some clothespins to hold the cards. I really like the way it came out and put our family and friends in the focal point of the room. We love them and it is a great reminder of all the beautiful people the Lord has blessed us with!
