Amazing & Easy Pumpkin, Caramel No Cook Trifle

This dig into goodness Trifle is a luscious way to serve up Pumpkin! Beautiful enough for special events & yet easy enough for everyday dining! Layers of flavors that young & old will enjoy. Best part is NO COOKING!

1 Large OR 2 15 oz. Cans of 100% Pumpkin
1 Large 5.1 oz. Box of Instant Vanilla Pudding
16 oz. Cool Whip Topping
1 TSP Cinnamon or use Allspice for variety
1 TSP Vanilla
1, 10 oz. Bag Mini Marshmallows
2 Sleeves of Graham Crackers OR use Gingersnaps, or Nilla Wafers or use crumbled up cake! Mix it up as you choose! I LOVE the Graham Crackers & I also love using Ginger Snaps & I never tried using the cake but it would be good too!
1, 15 oz.  Jar of Caramel Topping ! you want this nice & thick so use a good brand! I used Berry Hill brand & Smuckers is very good too!
Stir the pumpkin & the dry pudding mix together to combine very well! Now fold in 1/2 of the Cool Whip! Fold in the vanilla & spice stirring well. Now in your deep Trifle dish ( you may do this in a large 9x15 pan, or a deep mixing bowl if you do not have a Trifle dish), place a layer of the Graham Crackers or cookies or cake. Sprinkle with about 1&1/2 Cups of Mini Marshmallows. Now place 1/2 of the pudding mixture on top of the marshmallows spreading it out to even. Now spread a 1/2 of the Cool Whip that you have left. Now spread 1/2 of the Caramel Topping over the Cool Whip even it out as best you can, I drizzled it over to make it even. Now do another layer of Graham Crackers or that which you chose to use. Sprinkle another layer of Mini Marshmallows, now the remaining pudding, then the rest of the Cool Whip & drizzle more of that Caramel Topping! Chill well. TAHDAH you made a Trifle fit for a King!
