Grown-Up Milk & Cookies for Santa


It’s hard to believe Christmas season is almost over. It’s time for the big show, everyone! But before Christmas Day, there’s that oh-so-magical Christmas Eve. The anticipation of tomorrow’s gifts, joy, and laughter is electric. It’s the perfect evening for making traditions.

If you’re anything like us, you remember setting milk and cookies out for Santa every Christmas Eve. It’s a tradition that can be found in most homes, and that memory is so vivid. Now that we’ve grown up, we thought we would try a more adult version of this Christmas Eve classic. This Milk & Cookies trifle is just the thing. Not only is it incredibly easy to make, but it tastes divine. We think Santa is going to love it.

Merry Christmas, y’all!



  • Milk
  • 18 to 24 chocolate chip cookies
  • Whipped cream
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • Fresh mint, for garnish



Add some milk to a shallow dish, and quickly dip the cookies into the milk.

Add a layer of sweetened whipped cream in a trifle dish, and then layer in 6 to 8 dipped cookies on top. Repeat for several layers.

Top the trifle with the chopped pecans, and garnish it with mint.
