  • Preheat oven to 350° F and grease a 13x9 baking pan.

  • Spread evenly over the cooled cake layer and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • In another large bowl, mix the remaining 2 ½ cups milk and the two pudding mixes together and add green food coloring until desired color is reached. (start with 5-6 drops and add from there).
  • Pour the pudding over the cream cheese layer and place back into the refrigerator for at least 2 hours until set.
  • When ready to serve, spread the other 8 ounces of whipped topping over the green pudding layer and top with seasonal colored sprinkles.


Omit the peppermint candies if preferred.
