Spring is in the air! And after the long Winter, most of the country saw, it’s definitely a welcome sight. With Spring comes a freshness; new grass, flowers popping through the cold ground and the leaves beginning to show again on the trees. Although I love Spring, it’s so hard to decide what I like best…the flavors of Fall; apples, pumpkins, cinnamon or the flavors of Spring; lemon, strawberry, lime…oh the decisions!

One thing I don’t have a hard time deciding is what to serve for Easter. Along with Ham, there must be Deviled Eggs, Salad, Side Dishes and of course an easy Easter Dessert. And this Cheesecake Trifle is perfect!

Beginning with cream cheese and using the Fluffy 2-Step Cheesecake Recipe, I simply colored the cheesecake with pretty Easter colors and layered it in a mini dessert glass, a sprinkle of graham cracker crumbs between each layer and topped with  Whipped Topping and sprinkles.


The Cheesecake can be layered in any size or shape of glass. I have even used votive candle holders before in a pinch. You can find the dessert glasses at most department and kitchen stores, and they are very reasonably priced. You can also mix the Cheesecake up ahead of time, I would suggest filling the glasses the day you serve them. They go together in a snap though.

And in case you would rather make a pie with the filling, you can add the cheesecake mixture in layers to a graham cracker crust. This No Bake Cheesecake Trifle is always a hit!
