I am totally in love with this trifle you guys! Trifles are pretty much the EASIEST dessert ever and they are always show stoppers.  Layered desserts always have that WOW factor that makes them great for get togethers and parties.  Or, if you just feel like making something special!

This trifle is something special for sure.  I started with Sara Lee pound cake and then layered on the turtle goodness in the form of caramel, chocolate, chopped pecans and no bake cheesecake.

Yeah. It just doesn’t get any better.

The pound cake provides the perfect base for this trifle.   It’s super moist and dense enough that it can hold it’s own when it’s topped with layers and layers of ooey, gooey awesomeness.  It layers so perfectly and I love using Sara Lee pound cakes because they are SO convenient and delicious!  When I’m making a trifle, I want it to be quick and easy – no fuss.

I used caramel ice cream topping and hot fudge sauce in between each layer.  I just drizzled it on, and then sprinkled on the chopped pecans.  The pecans provide texture, crunch, and interest to this trifle. YUM!

Next is that ultra-creamy cheesecake layer that just melts in your mouth with each bite.  I didn’t sweeten it too much because it’s somewhat drenched in caramel and fudge sauce.  Perfection.

Layer after layer until we reach the top…

Some pretty drizzles of caramel and fudge and then a final smattering of pecans…voila!

  13. Plain with coffee on the side. Grew up in the South where a pound cake tends to sit on the counter “for company” and is brought out along with some fresh brewed coffee to welcome anyone. It is nearly an insult in the South to have someone visit and NOT have a cake (or at least a pie!) to serve.

  14. Susan M. says:

    As a base for strawberry shortcake – fresh strawberries and homemade whipped cream = YUM!
