If you enjoy desserts with different textures and ﬂavors, a dessert triﬂe is just what you need in your life. This triﬂe has layers of crunchy cookies, creamy cheesecake, and fresh berries. It is a ﬂavor explosion in your mouth with every bite. You could also get creative and use vanilla cookies for a Neapolitan triﬂe. Or use banana slices instead of strawberries for a whole new ﬂavor combo. So grab a spoon and get ready to dig in.
No-Bake Chocolate Strawberry Cheesecake Triﬂe
- Cooking and Prep: 40 m
- Serves: 15
For the Layers
Prepare the Cheesecake Filling
Beat the cream cheese until creamy. Add the sugar and beat until smooth.
Add the marshmallow crème and beat until creamy. Slowly beat in the milk until the mixture is smooth again.
Spoon in the melted chocolate and beat until completely incorporated.
Gently fold in two cups of the whipped topping with a rubber spatula.
Place half the cookie chunks in the bottom of a large triﬂe bowl. Spoon half the cheesecake ﬁlling over the cookies. Use the back of a spoon to smooth the cheesecake out and make it ﬂat in the bowl.
Place a few sliced strawberries standing up around the edge of the bowl. Place half the sliced strawberries lying ﬂat over the cheesecake layer.
Repeat the layers, ending with the strawberries on top.
Place the whole strawberries around the top and pipe the remaining topping in between the berries using a piping bag and icing tip 27. Top each swirl with a mini Oreo cookie.
This triﬂe is best served the day it is made.
