Strawberry Cheesecake Trifles

 Strawberries are without a doubt one of my favorite fruits.  I am so happy we have them available almost all year round.  I am also a big fan of the no bake cheesecakes and trifles. So when I put them all together in one little mini dessert it was heavenly.  I made a whole bunch of these and my husband and kids devoured them in a couple of days then asked me for a week if we had more of them.  I think that was their way of hinting to me to make more of them.  Of course I could make them since they are super easy. This light little dessert shot is a perfect way to end a meal without overdoing it on sugar.  

2 bricks (8oz) soften cream cheese
2/3 cup up to 1 cup of sugar ** (or splenda for low carb)
1 tub whipped topping
Fresh strawberries chopped as needed
1 cup crushed graham crackers
1 Tbs melted butter

Note:  Add sugar to taste.  I like things less sweet, but so I only add 2/3 cup. 

Blend softened cream cheese with sugar using an electric mixture until smooth.  Then fold in the whipped topping.    In a separate bowl mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter and set aside.  To assemble the mini trifles fill cheesecake filling into a pastry bag or zip-top bag so you can

To assemble trifles place a teaspoon of graham cracker mixture at the bottom.  then pipe some cheesecake mixture. Next add chopped fresh strawberries and more cheesecake filling.  Sprinkle a dusting of graham crackers on top to garnish.  Chill and serve. Makes about a 10-12 mini trifles depending on the size of your glasses and how much you fill them)  Enjoy.
