Raspberry Brownie Cheesecake Trifles

14 0

The great thing about these trifles is that you can prepare everything ahead of time and then just assemble it right before serving.  And the cheesecake filling doesn’t have to be baked!  Oh and you’ll only use half the pan of brownies (which have chocolate chips in them!) in the trifles which is good because then you have the rest to snack on… and believe me, after cutting them into small bite size squares, it’s almost impossible to not snag a few ten of them while assembling.

 

You can make one big trifle but I love making them in cups so that it’s already portioned.  When scooping trifle from a big bowl it’s very tempting and easy to go back for seconds and thirds. Yeah, you know what I’m talkin about.

 

The cheesecake filling is made using just cream cheese, sugar, and whipping cream.  It has the tangy cheesecake flavor but the whipped cream makes it less dense, pairing perfectly with the rich brownie and raspberries.

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 8 ounces cream cheesesoftened
