Easy Black Forest Trifle

Well that was a crazy past few days. OK, the past 2 days have been full blown recovery mode, but that's beside the point. They were very much needed from hosting our first Thanksgiving dinner with a couple of friends. 

Which brings me to this post. I just had to share a deliciously simple dessert with you all. But of course my pictures are minimal...OK, singular. But, to be fair, I was elbows deep in meal preparation for dinner. 

How simple is it?

1 chocolate cake mix, prepared & cut into cubes
1 can cherry pie filling
1-8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 tub whipped cream, thawed
powdered sugar

Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add whipped cream. Add powdered sugar until you get to the desired sweetness. (Yes, taste testing is a requirement. Which is great!)

In a trifle dish or large glass bowl, layer chocolate cake cubes, cream cheese mixture & cherry pie filling. 

Repeat layers.
Eat a chocolate cake square. 

Repeat layers.

 Eat a chocolate cake square with a bit of cream cheese mixture.

Repeat layers. 

Eat a chocolate cake square with some cream cheese mixture & some cherry pie filling. 

Repeat layers.

Continue eating & layering as needed.
