Just when you think chocolate couldn’t get any better, Lindsay from Life, Love, and Sugar adds Baileys to it and totally blows us away. She has a recipe for the perfect bite size chocolate trifles (think: P.F. Changs’ mini desserts). Plus, it has cheesecake and Oreos. #Drooling. I made a test batch of these bad boys and it was like eating a dream. I dare you to try them as well!
- 16 oz cream cheese, room temperature
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup cocoa
- 4 tbsp Baileys
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream, cold
- 2 tbsp Baileys (Note: I decided to leave the Baileys out of the whipped cream)
- 1 1/2 tbsp cocoa
- 3 tbsp powdered sugar
- 15 Oreo cookies, crushed
To make the trifles, divide half of the cookie crumbs evenly between the four cups (or jars) and spread into an even layer in the bottom of the cups. Pipe or spoon, an even layer of cheesecake filling on top of the cookie crumbs in each of the four cups. You should only use about half of the filling. Pipe, or spoon, an even layer of whipped cream on top of the cheesecake filling in each of the four cups. Divide remaining cookie crumbs between the four cups and evenly distribute the second layer of crumbs on top of the whipped cream. You can keep a little bit of crumbs aside, if you want to use them to sprinkle on top of the finished trifles. Pipe, or spoon, remaining cheesecake filling on top of cookie crumbs, distributing evenly between the four cups.
Top each trifle with a swirl of whipped cream and a few more cookie crumbs, if you kept some aside. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Lindsay recommends setting them out for about 15 minutes prior to eating, so that they aren’t too firm.
Happy Eating, XO.
