Every year at Christmas, I create a new trifle for us to enjoy on Christmas Day (and many days after...) This year, I created this chocolate cookie cheesecake trifle which incorporates layers of chocolate cake, a rich cheesecake mousse, homemade hot fudge, and pieces of chocolate sandwich cookies.
Judging by the reactions that I got from everyone who tried it, I'd say it's a winner. It manages to walk the tightrope between sweet and rich and it was the perfect end to our holiday meal.
My trifle creations are usually a mixed bag of homemade elements and shortcut elements, and this one is no different. I used a cake mix for the chocolate cake layer, frozen topping to give the mousse layer some lift (I use TruWhip), and then went the full homemade route with the hot fudge.
I love how trifles not only look so pretty in the bowl, but they also look pretty once you've scooped them out into a serving dish!
If you love the simple complexity of a layered trifle, this is one you'll want to consider trying! Enjoy!Print
