Liz’s Black Forest Mini Trifles {Guest Post}

I’m so excited to be sharing these delicious Black Forest Mini Trifles with you today! As we prepare for the holidays, we are all so busy, this delicious dessert is a perfect addition to any celebration.

Trifles are one of those desserts that I absolutely love to serve. The flavor combinations are endless, they are super easy to create but look very impressive. And they are very budget friendly…a little goes a long way.

After making the Black Forest Whoopie Pies last week, I had a few chocolate cookies left over and whipped up these mini trifles in minutes. They are elegant enough to serve for a Dinner or Holiday Party and easy enough to add a sparkle to a weeknight meal.

Black Forest Mini Trifle Recipe


  • Chocolate cake, cupcakes or cookies – broke into small pieces
  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1 container Whipping Cream, Cool Whip or other whipped topping
  • Chocolate Jimmie Sprinkles {optional but fun}


  • Use leftover cake or bake one, break into small pieces, and place in a glass dish.
  • Add some cherries
  • Add Cool Whip
  • And then repeat
  • Top with cherries and a few sprinkles

I hope you have enjoyed the Black Forest Mini Trifles. Thanks so much for having me over today, Erin!
