Irish Flag Jell-O Dessert TrifleI loved fun themed treats and St. Patrick’s Day is no exception. Although we don’t go “all-out” for this holiday, ever since being in Dublin, Ireland for St. Patrick’s Day during college, I have a special place in my heart for the day! While everything you see here in the states for St. Patrick’s Day tends to be all green, in Ireland there is actually a lot of orange and the Irish flag represented for the holiday! So, that’s what inspired this fun Irish flag Jell-O dessert trifle! St. Patrick's Day Dessert TrifleThis was SO easy to make and the boys had so much fun with it! You can make some slow cooker guinness corned beef & cabbage for dinner and then serve this up for dessert. Read some St. Patrick’s Day books with the kids and you’ve got a whole themed night!

St. Patrick's Day Dessert: Irish Flag Trifle

Prep Time1 hour
Total Time1 hour
Course: Dessert
Servings: 10 -20
Author: Sara @ Mom Endeavors


  • 2 large orange JELLO boxes 6oz
  • 2 large lime JELLO boxes 6oz
  • *1 tub whipped topping
  • *Angel Food Cake 1/2
  • Whipped Cream & Sprinkles for garnish


  • Make the orange JELLO according to package directions (I use the speed set method). Pour into a 9x13 cake pan and place in the fridge.
  • Prep the lime JELLO according to package directions. Pour into a separate 9x13 pan and place in the fridge.
  • Cut bite-sized cubes of cake and mix with whipped topping.
  • Once set, cut the JELLO into cubes.
  • Layer into trifle dish, according to Irish Flag (green, white, and orange).
  • Top with whipped cream & St. Patrick's Day (or green) sprinkles for garnish. Serve cold.


*I included the angel food cake to help give it some stability. But, if there's an issue with the different textures (or you don't want the added carbs), I think you could omit the cake.
*If you omit the cake though, I think you would need two tubs of whipped topping.
