Thanksgiving Idea 5: Pumpkin Bread Triffle

This pumpkin bread triffle was introduced by Tricia who should totally be a chef at a top restaurant in my opinion, at our cooking group meeting a couple of months ago. Everyone loved it! It looked so pretty, I almost didn't want to eat it because I didn't want to destroy the beauty of the triffle. I brought some home to share with my hub and cub and they both fell in love with it! I'm so excited to have this recipe and share it with you. I think it will be a great dessert for Thanksgiving dinner! Or just about any other dinners. :)

Pumpkin Bread Triffle
by Tricia Stainbrook

1 loaf pumpkin bread cut into small squares
( I used Krusteaz pumpkin spice mix for mine)
pumpkin pudding
(8 vanilla pudding cups mixed with 1/2 cup pumpkin pie filling)
pumpkin mousse
(24 ounces stiffly whipped heavy cream, 16 ounces marscapone cheese, 1/2 cup pumpkin pie filling mixed together on low setting)
caramel maple sauce;
melt 1/4 cup butter in small saucepan
add 1 cup extra fine (baker's) sugar
and 1/4 cup water, bring to a boil until it begins to turn golden, stirring often, then add 2 Tablespoons real maple syrup (can be omitted if you just want caramel sauce)
1 cup chopped pecans

Place about 1/4 cup pudding in bottom of fancy plastic cup or glass
then a layer of bread and then a layer of mousse. Repeat and top with maple caramel sauce and pecans

Makes 8 6 ounce triffles, could be done in one large glass bowl or made in smaller glasses for more smaller servings. Refridgerate for up to two hours before serving if desired, just wait to put the sauce on it until ready to serve!
